    Assassins Creed engine powering an open world Star Wars game? Could be good. Once they sort out the bugs.

    It's Massive, they're using Snowdrop. So it's The Division in Star Wars land. I mean... that sounds OK to me. :)

    Perfect excuse really...
    "Keep an eye out for 'Force convergence points'!
    Here you can see The Force make objects intersect, make dialogue heard before character lips move and bend midiclorians into the now famous 'Failed to start multiplayer session' anomaly."

    Ubisoft, so it'll be icon-spam all over the map, with paid xp boosts in the store. Still better than lootboxes, though.

    Few years ago I would have been excited by this news. Until they started releasing exactly the same game year after year.

    Is it safe to assume that it'll be a live service game, on account of it being by the devs that made The Division?

    The Division's co-op merged with deathmatch style multiplayer in a Star Wars setting? Bring it on! It's not quite the same as the Ass Creed/Far Cry homogenisation - The Division at least has its own feel. And admittedly its own bucketload of shit, but I'm more excited for this than EA shitting out another Battlefront that's for sure.

    Massive build amazingly detailed worlds, New York and Washington are incredible and the division 2 is pretty much a master class in UI.

    It's promising news.

    I havenít knowingly played a Ubisoft game in years much less bought one. I honestly would rather have another EA game. Their entire slate is just miserable.

    I think the first Far Cry was the only Ubisoft game I ever finished.

    They're all such slogs.

    Can I call a Ubisoft bashing exemption for Rayman Legends and Valiant Hearts?

    What's nice about all these recent announcements is that we'll get a meritocracy (or at least a revenue-tocracy) in the games being made. Respawn get a sequel 'cos their games were good, Battlefront maybe not so much because of the controversy. Now there's Machine Games and Massive in there as well, and who know what else is waiting in the wings.

    Different publishers, different teams, different engines - it could be cool!

    Hmm.. maybe a co-op Bounty Hunter affair might be interesting.

    Would like to see a grittier take on the Star Wars universe than Jedi:Fallen Order

    Ubisoft + Open World? Hell no. I had enough of that drivel with Origins and Odyssey. Won't even play Valhalla and future AC instalments.

    Don't forget that the primary creative force behind all that homogenisation was let go as part of the sexual harassment gubbins last year - or at least if memory serves they were. Not that Massive were ever really a part of that - The Division definitely had icon creep, but it was a different gameplay loop than the other open worlders at least.

    I'm not as much of a Ubi-hater as most on here, I actually dig the Ass Creed and Far Cry loops, homogenisation and all, so I'm looking forward to this. :)

    Massive Entertainment is the dev. Same people that made The Division.

    Better than most of the other open world devs at least.

    Iím not exactly thrilled with this announcement. Iím curious but after bouncing off fairly hard of both div 1 & 2 (yes I went back!) I think Iíll wait and see.
    That said I found both dull due to the unexciting current world setting, rinse and repeat combat and bland looking loot.
    Star ways may be able to elevate some of that a bit maybe.

    Itís not even Ubisoft hate. They have released the same three games every year, in one way or the other, every year for over a decade.

    I donít hate them its just that I genuinely couldnít care less about their games and itís pretty likely this will just be another one of their open worlds in a Star Wars dress.

    They are pretty fucking shit. By far the worst of the big publishers.

    Cannot wait to replay the same missions until my eyes bleed for, +2 force power on my Jedi knee pads, that look the same as every other pair of knee pads.


    Well I guess The Division is alright for quite a while, until you get to the fine tune your stats stage, which applies to a lot of games really.

    I mean, itís not entirely unique. Fallen order is the first EA game Iíve played in a dogs age. I couldnít give a crap about most of their games, either.

    So I guess the EA deal has expired?

    Seems they're being quite even handed with dishing out these Lucasarts licenses. Maybe seeing who can deliver and stick with them, I don't know.

    Shame Dice's games were a bit shit and rushed, they by far have the best multiplayer engine out there.

    ed: Actually these are maybe single player games, doesn't make sense to give them to Dice if so.

    Does Lucasarts still own Monkey Island?
