This puts it on track for its previously announced release date of November 17th. Word is: "#StarWarsBattlefront2 has gone gold! Well done to the @EA_DICE, and Motive teams! We've had a blast making this awesome game with you." Thanks VideoGamer.

We'll see how good the SP campaign is. It was Criterion yes, but also EA Motive which I think was the remains of Bioware Montreal that did the not amazing Mass Effect: Andromeda I believe.

Also, whatever the loot box shit is, I highly doubt it'll be worse than the perma-grind in Destiny 2. So much wrong with that game, and the whole structure of it is entirely built around perma grinding.

It's not short, it's Cinematic!

Remember when single player Star Wars games were something amazing, I member.

This is just training wheels simulator for the multiplayer, MP maps stitched together with some cut scenes and on-rails shooting gallery sections.

One thing I always enjoyed about the "classic" Star Wars games was the extreme sensation of vertigo they had, even with the now primitive graphics they were able to convey dizzying height. I doubt they brought that forward, people would expect crazy parkour movement system like Mirror's Edge.

If the single player is really that short I'll just finish it with the 10hr trial I get with EA Access

I am going to buy it for the short single-player campaign once it goes down to $10 or less.

I guess the time factor will be determined by how "well" the lootboxes scam in game will earn?

True. If not enough people gamble, they would have to increase the player base.

Come on, EA, make it ten bucks! You know you want to!

Yeah, once I read 5-7 hours, I was like "Oh." 5-7 hours in dev speak is typically about 4-5 hours in reality, and then likely at least an hour of that is cutscenes.

10 bucks seems about right, but I think it'll take a while before it gets there, since they're doing all the content packs for free, as opposed to SWBF1 where they were paid (and almost pure profit), so they had incentive to lower the price asap to get more potential content pack customers.
