I think there's a VR section of SWBF2? This is certainly the first one that's fully playable in VR.

Frostbite already runs incredibly well with something ultra-detailed like SWBF2, when you're in space there's no terrain. Even a map with lots of space debris or a space station etc. has comparatively alot less triangles than say Theed on Naboo, Galactic Conquest. Also alot less surfaces to have to use shaders on for dynamic lighting etc. Just the nature of the genre.

Game will still look better than just about any space-type game, but it will also run really well.

Even when Ea doesn't try to fuck up they fuck up. How in the world do you release a game like this that you fly as the fricking name says in a Squadron and not have Coop to fly in that same squadron with Coop players to enjoy the Campaign, Fucking EA!!!!

Campaigns are usually built around a hero narrative that doesn't really work with 4x other "chosen ones" in your game at the same time. Really don't think that's a big "fuck up" as much as "pretty fucking standard".

And I just noticed that on the pre-order page they're openly advertising it on Steam and EGS and they're doing a global launch on each store on the same day. That's def new. It has absolutely nothing to do with the game itself (good, bad or ugly), but I know some people will get a hard-on for this stuff. I just wish they'd be more honest and next to Steam there was red text saying "We only get 70% of this sale" and next to EGS it said: "We only get 88% of this sale". Also: "You'll still be downloading and launching the game from Origin anyways, so do us both a favour".

That's probably the best analogy yet.

Are you saying there will be no combat on the surface of planets? Why make a Starwars Fighter game in 2020 with no fight in the atmosphere of planets when we had games like No Man's land? Only Space, a few fighters and capital ships to take down.. That sounds very bland and repetitive.
