    same here. though what really intrigues me is that i'm hoping we get at least one mission post Jakku, like literally right after they signed the concordance. then they can do their time jump. cause i'm sure LF was like "we got plans for the rest of that time period."

    There is so much to be seen from the Empire's perspective during this time. I'm very excited about it.

    I'm sure we will see something like that. Intact the part of the trailer that shows Luke looks to be taking place on a desert planet. Also, it is my understanding that the Battle of Jakku takes place a year or 2 after ROTJ right? Inferno Squadron would be at that battle for sure as it was the last hope for the Empire before fleeing and returning as the First Order.

    So the main character in this is going to switch sides by the end of the campaign isn't she?

    Actually Luke is not on a desert planet. I'm pretty sure it's sullust due to the look of the area.

    I'm hoping Mustafar comes back in this one. It was one of my favorite maps in the original BF2.

    I would love Mustafar. And Felucia, and Mygeto! I just like having a large diversity of environments.:D

    Felucia would be interesting. Certainly a colorful planet that would stand out from the others.

    I feel like Felucia, Mygeeto, and Cato Neimoidia would look insanely awesome in BF2.

    I want Mustafar too but I think Sullust kinda made the idea of another lava planet less exciting.

    I want as many diverse locations as possible.

    From accounts we're at least going back to Tatooine (Mos Eisley from the looks of it), and from the trailer Sullust, Hoth, Jakku and Endor are coming back in some capacity as they can feature prominently as part of Iden's story in the single-player (and can therefore be carried over). But Bespin? I'm not so sure the single player story justifies it and it may not be carried forward. Just putting that out there as a warning!

    So far it looks like we're getting the following confirmed:
    Yavin IV (ign)
    Tatooine - Mos Eisley spaceport (ign, trailer)
    Starkiller Base (ign, trailer)
    Vardos (panel, trailer)
    Hoth (trailer)
    Endor (trailer, unless this is part of a cutscene only, though I doubt it)
    Sullust (trailer, background of Luke shot)
    Naboo - Reactor Room (trailer, Maul shot)
    Takodana (trailer, aerial battle at least)
    Jakku (trailer, aerial battle at least)

    Then presumably there is also:
    Scarif (I think the shield base is shown in the trailer, but this may be a spaceport with a docked Star Destroyer instead)
    Kamino (concept art)

    It's actually quite a lot of planets already (even without the presumed additional PT content). I have posted before about my fears over limited content per era given the 3 eras, but it certainly seems like we'll be getting more than what we had from the first game plus all its DLC. And that's a very encouraging thought.


    On a different note, watching the trailer for this (especially the shot of the TIE flying through the wreckage) has me really wanting them to do an animated show in this realistic style...

    I think Bespin CAN return but likely only in multiplayer. From what I am gathering, it sounds like the multiplayer part of the game is its own stand alone component and not linked to single player campaign at all.

    So according to Dave Filoni
    Show Spoiler
    Rex survives up to the Battle of Endor and is the old bearded rebel in ROTJ. Since we get to experience that battle in the campaign, wouldn't it be awesome if we could play as him for a sequence?

    I think it would be awesome for Ahsoka to join Rex to lead a battalion against the Empire.

    That is fun speculation on Dave's part. Its doubtful Ahsoka is around by the time of ROTJ, least in her original form or whatever.

    I loved all PT maps from OBF2 except Polis. I wonder how mushy PT will appear in this game. The lack of PT kept me from getting first BF. Only thing with new game is they are going to feature Disney maps. I don't really care for those places. I wonder how many maps per era?

    Doesn't have to be around the time of the ROTJ though. Won't the sequel game feature maps (and I assume heroes/villains) from all eras?

    Yes. The multiplayer & skirmish modes are going to have maps from all three eras. The campaign goes from ROTJ to TFA.

    This game looks great, I really hope it is better than Battlefront 2015, which had the potential to be great but focused too much (in my opinion) on the online PVP content, instead of a story. I really want to see a strong story/campaign, a bit like Battlefront II on the ps2. It looks fun though and it is believed to have both prequel and sequel content! :D

    Haven't seen this video posted yet, but there's a few details in Jackfrag's video about battlefront 2 that are interesting. One that I haven't heard before is that playing in first person will have certain advantages over playing in third person this time around (Presumably some kind of accuracy boost to compensate for the lack of situational awareness).

    It would be an interesting arc for her to realise everything she once believed was all a lie.

    One of the things that stood out for me on BF2015 was the incredible visuals. I loved running through the forests of Endor or the ice plains of Hoth. They looked truly photorealistic. If they can maintain that same level of visual quality in BF2, as well as throw in a top-notch campaign and space combat, this has the potential to be the best Star Wars game ever.
