A new Rogue Squadron this ain't. Sadly.

Apparently you can sign up for the beta now and the max player count is (only?) 16. A SW themed War Thunder, maybe?

Here's to hoping!

Still wanting a true successor to the X-Wing/Tie Fighter space sim series. This might be a step in the right direction.

I'll hold off judgement until the Quick Look.

If I can fly a B-Wing I may be interested in trying the game out.

The only Squadron I was looking for was Rogue Squadron.

Edited by UberExplodey

Duder Squadron?

What's with this space renaissance all of a sudden? Not that I'm complaining.

No joke, I clicked on the video with typing out exactly that. B-Wing or Lambda class shuttle for me.

Actually, who am I kidding. I am obsessed with Star Wars and I will probably play this.

That animation is not super great.

Posted by Bribo

Bullshit Squadron.

Posted by Rearmed

Is it only me that thinks it looks like a fake? Or is the animators just really bad?

Free to ignore as well.

Edited by ProfessorEss

Say what you will about the stories and characters but Star Wars still has the dopest ships.

(bad trailer tho')

What are the chances you'll be able to modulate the direction of your shields and transfer power to weapons in this game?

Posted by Phoenix87

Gameplay or GTFO

Posted by HatKing

Fart noises.

I loved the Rogue Squadron games (well, most of them). But the "free-to-play" carries such a negative fucking connotation that my interest in this evaporated before I clicked play.

FUCK ROGUE SQUADRON

TIE FIGHTER, MOTHERFUCKERS

WE OUT

Sounds like someone recorded the audio from 2 dudes attempting to remember aerial combat dialogue from the Star Wars franchise through an Xbox Live voice chat.

Edited by RonnieBarzel

Why does it sound like Han Solo cheering when the Falcon shoots down a TIE Fighter, when he was actually down on the forest moon of Endor during the battle of the second Death Star?

Posted by Pirsig

@epsilonse: Agreed, the dialogue sounds terrible.

I just wish 1313 didn't get cancelled, although maybe that would have been garbage, we'll never know thanks to Disney. Not that Lucas didn't kill things years ago.

I liked both, but sure, first person cockpit view space shooters are always preferable.

Too late too little

Reminds me of the Star Wars screensaver I used to have back in the day.

Posted by adamm0

This is a good idea. I hope they don't fuck it up (They're probably going too.) Still, fingers crossed! I love War Thunder, so I will probably eat this up.

Posted by Bunny_Fire

the game will be just like this but all the fighting on both sides will be via quicktime events those that are better at quick time events will win

Posted by GERALTITUDE

I'm not going to watch the trailer, but alright, I like Star Wars.

If the Free 2 Play isn't invasive, and if the game is fun, great. This is a real time flight combat game right? Could be amazing, potentially.

DON'T FUCK THIS UP, please.

Rogue Squadron II has, bar none, the best first person sci fi cockpits in the history of games.

Posted by crithon

that was it?? Huh..... I'm a big star wars nerd and that did NOTHING for me. Let me check my general akbard figure..... nope, well maybe, like if they did something.... seriously this is a big meh, give me a trench run, something.

I didn't even know there was a sequel, I only played the N64 game! But, yeah, looking at a gameplay video, that does seem pretty neat. Not sure I'd put it above Independence War, Inferno: The Odyssey Continues or Wing Commander 3 though.

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

It's great to see the X-Wing in a new game for once. I think it's still one of the best looking fighter designs.

$5.99 for Y-Wing Pack

Right? Terrible trailer.

Posted by Harabec

That audio was so terrible. Why even release a trailer with it in that sorry shape?

Posted by eng050599

Damn it , just give me another X-Wing vs Tie Fighter! Not these arcade shooters. Bring back the Star Wars space combat sim. You'd think with the revival of the genre starting (hopefully) with Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous, they would want to cash in.

Edited by courage_wolf

Sign me up for a TIE Interceptor, the sexiest of starfighters.

Posted by TheSouthernDandy

Hm sorta rough trailer but the idea is great. At least what I have in my head is. Gameplay please.

Posted by JohnZimmerman

what is it exactly?

Edited by Cybexx

The nice thing about space combat is that you can spend nearly your entire poly budget on the ships.

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

A new star wars game huh? That could be interes....oh, it's Free to Play? Nevermind.

Edited by itspizza

I hate how everything star wars recently is "lets just throw as many references and nostalgia into this thing as we possibly can", instead of trying to do something somewhat original.

Posted by kunoh

Hmm. Maybe this is something like war thunder in space?

Edited by fishless

Jaycee is once again correct.

Maybe, Potentially, Possibly Be Cool and F2P can't go together, unless someone either makes F2P not unethical or everyone's standards and/or IQs plummet. And the latter (IQs plummeting) is MUCH more likely than the former.

Have they announced what platforms it will be on?
