Star Wars: Battlefront 2

After a promo leaked yesterday, EA has released the new full-length trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront 2 ‘Starfighter Assault’ game mode.

Focused primarily on space battles, the trailer shows off both ships and locations from across the entire saga. Beginning with the classic X-Wings and Y-Wings dog fighting with Tie Fighters, we jump forward (or is that back?) to Darth Maul’s Scimitar and Trade Federation fighters. From the off, it looks and sounds amazing, as hundreds of starfighters wage war around massive capital ships. A few familiar ships also pop-up, including the Millennium Falcon and Slave I.

Even Yoda is getting in pn the action and it seems like he’s had enough, manning a laser cannon that looks bigger than he is.

The ‘Starfighter Assault’ game mode being showcased really looks to be upping the stakes after Star Wars: Battlefront finally got space battles in the Death Star DLC.

With the flying aspect of the game being handled by Criterion Games, these space battles look intense, using camera angles and the sense of speed seen in the recent films. Matt Webster, the general manager of Criterion Games, has confirmed that space battles will be a major part of both the single-player campaign (which follows directly after the Battle of Endor) and multiplayer, giving fans plenty of chance to get to grips with their favorite starfighter.

Webster also confirmed that each ship will handle similarly, with the skills and perks that a player picks up as they play through the multiplayer making the difference rather than using specific vehicle stats. All ships can be flown in first-person and we expect to see several more be shown off in the run up to release.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will launch on November 17th for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. On top of that, players will be able to get a taste of the action in the open beta running from October 4th to October 9th.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
