    Equal parts ‘TOTALLY FUCKING STOKED, AAARRRRGGGGH, INJECT IT STRAIGHT INTO MY VEINS’ and mild concern that it will be a microtransaction-laden mess.

    Definitely needs VR support, too.

    Reports suggest it's a primarily MP game, sadly.

    I expect a glorified tutorial SP, and an MP that's an expanded version of the Battlefront 2 space combat.

    I'm kind of expecting more of an X-Wing vs Tie Fighter vein rather than a full blown single/multi-player campaign. But, would be rather nice if they did give it 'the works'....

    Pfft. An MP game can do one. Am disappointed if true.

    Think 2 or 3pm.

    There no way this is a flight sim. It's got to be something resembling the old Rogue games, right? Anything resembling the old games with objective based and arcade in 4k... I'll be all over that.

    But this is EA, isn't it... been burned far too many times before. Appreciate they tried something different with Fallen Order but it just didnt work for me at all.

    Played the Rogue games recently and they still hold up. Just please dont mess this up you CANTS.

    Yeah, but fail to see how your taste is their fault? You personally don’t like Fallen Order.

    I understand not liking FUT and the loot box stuff, etc.

    Seems to me that judging a publisher for continually having games made that you dislike is pretty much the least controversial reason for distrusting their future decisions.

    I'm still amazed that EA ok'd Fallen order. A single player focused game that they cant use to exploit people's wallets..
    Among all the shitty publishers they are among the worst

    Yeah, I guess it was just the “been burned too many times before” comment, like they’d pulled some kind of bait and switch. If it’s just personal taste then it’s not really their fault.

    If I didn’t like open world titles I wouldn’t blame Ubi, etc.

    EA has more or less gotten the message I think. I’ve been hearing good things about how they’ve kept supporting the last Battlefield and they’ve just released a bunch of stuff on Steam because they’ve realised absolutely nobody likes Origin.

    Hum, I think EA are a bit different to Ubi where even if they announce a game I like the sound of I assume they're going to mess it up somehow. Whereas Ubi at least to follow through on the pitch, for better or worse.

    Really didn't expect this point to start an argument. I'm not saying Fallen Order is part of the reason EA are shithouses. Just a side comment on their last Star Wars output. Should have structured that paragraph better I suppose.
    As it was, I dont think it worked having an amalgamation of different influences and felt the execution was quite sloppy.

    Dont need to explain the reasons anyone should distrust EA.

    You still need Origin to play them all :)

    It’s not the full Origin though, it only handles the DRM.

    I've just installed Dragon Age 2 from Steam and it does install the full Origin client, although the store is disabled when it launches from Steam.

    Weird, I was going from what I heard from Linus Tech Tips, supposed to be a light version of Origin.

    Hope this is decent, a couple of hours into Fallen Order and I’m bored with it.
