The BF2 early access is out. Below are some cool videos I been watching, along with a playlist of a lot more. Definitely check out at least the Heroes vs Villains link below. If you have any other cool gameplay links, post it below. Also, share your thoughts on the game and if you plan to buy it (and, if so, for what console).

I really hope they add Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka.

Edit: Is Adam Driver not voicing Kylo?? Wtf

DarthAnt66
thumb up Everything else looks amazing. My only complaint is a lack of PT heroes and villains.

|King Joker|
Isn't Grievous going to be added, or was that just a rumor?

DarthAnt66
Apparently they said they tried to get him into 1.0 but his animations were so complex it was taking much longer than expected.

They already composed a theme for him when the character spawns. It's apart of the iTunes playlist, I saw.

They also had an Anakin theme. There's also one for Ahsoka.

At the very least they could have a Pre-Suit Vader skin if they're really that worried about having Vader fight Anakin even they have cross era gameplay.

Luke's post ROTJ appearance is well done and Kylo's style is interesting since he looks like a Shien user since he switches between the reverse grip a lot. At least that what it looks like.

I'd laugh if they had a Revan DLC character. Force drain would be interesting.

Grievous would be amazing especially if they make him like his Legends incarnation.

godemperortrump
Yeah Kenobi and Anakin are a must.

Hate using StarWarsHQ in this way.

Apparently, it will take nearly 40 hours to get enough credits to unlock either Luke or Vader.

Yep. A single hero. Though, I think others are cheaper so you can get them in half the time.

Trooper crates are how you get new weapons and other upgrades.

|King Joker|
Yeah I was gonna get this for Christmas but not anymore lol

The arcade mode looks fun and I'd want to play singleplayer, but I'm probably just going to wait until the price drops.

Well, they only have two playable heroes for the PT/ST respectively, so it makes sense.

Otherwise, you'd have to play as Darth Maul every time you play on the CIS.

When they add more heroes, that will hopefully change.

DarthAnt66
If the gameplay being as Canon as possible is important for you, try to imagine the non-accurate heroes / villains as clone replicas for earlier era characters playing in later eras (ex. if you fight Yoda as the First Order, it appears they've gotten their hands on a clone Yoda), or as just lesser versions for later era characters playing earlier eras (ex. on Kamino, Rey is just a female Jedi, Han Solo an important smuggler, Darth Vader a CIS Jedi Hunter, etc.).

That's what I do at least, lol.

Kurk
I thought you refused to watch anything from SW theory?


And btw the amount of in-game purchases emphasized on video games now-a-days is part of the reason why I'm phasing them out of my life. It's pay to win even after dropping x amount of dollars on the actual thing.

DarthAnt66
These videos are different, obviously.

|King Joker|
How do you feel about having to play forty hours to be able to use Vader or Luke, Ant

DarthAnt66
Honestly? Doesn't bother me much. If there's nothing to work toward in the game, it'll get boring quick, which was one of my main issues with EABF1. Back with Lego Star Wars, you had to play countless hours to unlock some of the most expensive characters, like the Force ghosts. The reward for unlocking is always enjoyable for me, too.

My main concern is the amount of credits you win each match. It seems like you get credits per the amount of time in the match, not the amount of enemies you kill / objectives you secure. That's annoying, but will hopefully be fixed in future updates.

NewGuy01
was og bf2 boring because you didn't have to grind for heroes?

DarthAnt66
Well, nothing compares to the replay value of the original BF2.

Anyway, I'm obviously not against them lowering the credits for the heroes, but I personally don't care much if they do or don't.

EA put out a statement saying they're lowering hero credit costs by 75%.

So Vader / Luke will now by 15K credits, Palpatine / Leia 10K, and Iden 5K.

Big Gerald
I can't wait to face off against 13 year olds uttering homophobic slurs in another microtransaction-riddled P2W shitshow of a AAA release.

|King Joker|
The homophonic slurs are my favorite part

Trocity
I think it's funny the character they made up for their single player campaign is for some reason locked, I would think they'd give her to everyone for free.

This game is awesome though, was up all night playing with a few buddies.

Hard to get bored of an already fun game that has an almost endless amount of mods.

Source? 10 hours of matches (not including matchmaking times) for each hero is still a lot, but within reason. thumb up

I played a couple hours on multiplayer and almost have enough credits for Vader/Luke.

Yeh, but apparently it would take roughly 110 weeks of playing 40 hours a week to max out the stats for your characters. That or $2100.

Just beat the campaign. What did you guys think about the ending?

Was it good? I really don't care for the spoilers for this game. It wasn't cliche was it? The whole game I mean.

It was DLC bait. The line about Del and Iden's daughter is just more fuel to the fire for Rey theorists.

Yeah I really hope Rey isn't their daughter.

It was decent. I liked how it tied in some of the main star wars characters and bridged the gap between ROTJ and TFA. The multiplayer is great though.

Though I'm hearing that.

The main character turns traitor to the Alliance. Is that true?

DarthAnt66
How the hell would Rey be their daughter? Iden's black.

They defect to the Alliance near the beginning of the games. It's stupid as hell.

She's not black, she's mixed race. Her mother's skin was light brown and her dad was white as ****. It's not impossible for Rey to be her daughter, even without the creative liberty that they could definitely take.

I still doubt it, though I'd actually enjoy it if their kid was force sensitive (and I'd probably be on board with Rey being her kid too, to some extent). What I want to know is where it's said they had a daughter? I'm sure I'm missing something but I thought Rax only mentioned 'fatherhood', not the gender?

Rebel95
I think Kylo said something about a daughter. Also mentioned something about "Operation Resurrection" at the end... I have a feeling that will tie into TLJ somehow

Yeah I wasn't expecting that to happen so early

Kurk
People actually using the spoiler feature appropriately for once? *Shock!*

DarthAnt66
mmm I'm quite concerned now.

While I'm semi-confident Disney wouldn't do something as stupid as making two non-Force sensitive nobodies from a video-game the highly-anticipated parents of their main new character in the Skywalker family saga, I feel threatened nonetheless.

EDIT: That's not to say Rey's parents have to be big-shot Jedi-in-training, but them being non Force sensitives would raise far more questions than answers.

How would the film even present that?

"Your parents were Imperial Special Forces defectors... to learn more, check out Battlefront 2!"

That would be the most notoriously awful reveal in history, rofl.

Was just about to post that. Went ahead and pre-ordered.

3 hours before game's release. https://imgfast.net/users/3513/11/32/39/smiles/2962655802.gif

They said they will reverse this change at some point after the launch. Progression is only cash-free for the time being, presumably to reverse the damages to sales brought by the press.

ares834
I'm waiting to see what they replace the current progression system before buying it. But, yeah, this great news; news that I certainly never anticipated.

Nah. They said they will bring back purchases, not that progression being cash-free is temporary.

Based on the Reddit AMA, I think they'll remodel the lootboxes into a cosmetic store like clone trooper skins.

Big Gerald
We shall see.

Rebel95
Anyone know how/if you can view your online stats like total kills, score, kill death ratio, etc? I've been trying to figure that out
