Star Wars Squadrons just premiered its new CG trailer

Much of the noise about Star Wars: Squadrons has been made about the game’s narrative beats in its single-player campaign and it looks like that drum will continue to be thumped as the game is about to premiere an all-new CG trailer that’s all about that sweet story.

“Meet one of the ace pilots you’ll fly alongside in STAR WARS™: Squadrons in this original standalone CG short, made in collaboration by Motive Studios, Lucasfilm, and ILM.”

If that gets your dander going, then you can stay right where you are and watch the video as it goes live at 11:00 a.m. EDT, which is probably about the point where this story will show up on this site. Popcorn optional, but almost certainly recommended.

Welp. Another good SW game trailer. But that doesn’t mean jack shit. Heh.

So, let’s see some game play and get some details. Great story beats means nothing with out good game play.

I just don’t believe that EA will make a game with “fun as purchased” as a primary design criteria. I expect everything from the cash shop to the game mechanics to be tailored to try to convince me to spend more money on the game than the purchase price, and I’m disinclined to do so. *shrug*

Maybe I’ll be proved wrong – it’d be nice – and I’ll pick it up when it goes on sale, but I’m not hyped for it, and I’m sure as blazes not going to pre-order it.

I’m bad that I saw him crashed on the planet and thought Star Wars Exiles, the Survival Game

Chad imp vs virgin rebel. Gotta get them edgelords fired up!

Cool cinematic though – i enjoyed this and SWTOR cinematics more than the latest trilogy.

I want this game to be good as I loved the old Xwing vs Tie Fighter games, but I’m really concerned we’re going to end up with another Battlefront 2 situation.

I’m not talking about the lockbox controversies. I’m worried that the ‘gear’ progression system will mean the players who put in a million hours will be decked out in the best purple gear and newer players, or players with much less time, will have no chance.

I got talked into picking up SW Battlefront 2 again by a friend and it was absolute carnage. Even when you got the jump on the super-high players, popped them in the head they could just take your shots, spin around and one/two-shot you with their decked out gear. Wasn’t fun at all.

Between Battlefront 2 and this short there’s been a lot of, “Sympathize with the fascists” in their games that is disconcerting. George literally wrote the Empire as fascist. Cool effects and all, but odd.

Imperial merch sure does sell, though. See also this Lindsay Ellis video essay.

He also gave us 3 movies about Darth Vader and the failure of democracy, so… it’s a toss up.

If we’re tossing Jar-Jar on a wood chipper, then sure. Nothing against the actor (and really saddened people attacked him directly over it.) But I’ve *always* felt Jar-Jar escaped from a Scooby Doo cartoon.

He would fit the Ice Age movies
