Yeah, finally found on the PSN store and just added to download queue. Will have to wait until after work but I will be ready!

Can't wait, this will be my go-to game through the holidays.

Played the first map and man that framerate is far from a locked 60fps on Xbox One. And boy does it look blurry outside. But that's no wonder since it likely is 720p and on my 65 inch TV. I need to see this on One X.

Mine's the physical edition of the elite trooper deluxe whatever. Would that make a difference?

Yep. And the advantage you get from an Epic starcard as opposed to a lower tier one is really small.
It's actually pretty much like the first game, which had two tiers of starcards. Now you have four tiers.

Yeah, for reference I compiled all of the starcard info from the alpha and leaks here. The gap isn't that big.

Kinda hoping they start to add some interesting variations to the star cards. Cool to have a certain amount of weapon modding too but the starcards could do with variations to keep things fresh.

Yep and I can accept two extra tiers on the star cards this time in return for all DLC for free.

Battlefield 1 ran below 60fps, Battlefront games tend to stick to 60fps more often, better frame rate overall

Can't say the same about the beta on Xbox. Far from a great framerate.

Oh no, don't say that! Was hoping and expecting this to be ultra crisp on my 4k / Pro setup.

Wait, is starfighter assault just fighter squadron from the first game? I really wanted a mode like in BF2 (2005) where you started on a capital ship and had to invade the enemy teams capital ship.

Dice, for gods sake, just skin Battlefield with Star Wars, stop trying to make it different.

Hold the crouch button. Lord knows why they've done it like that. No option, as far as I can tell, to switch it to toggle.

I really hope the XBOX1X version is going to be heavily improved. Buying it specifically for this game, but the normal xbox is running it really blurry and far from 60fps.

Because tap is roll.


Not noticing framerate or blur issues on PS4Pro.

No, it's got objectives now rather than being TDM in ships.

I can't find a starfighter control setup I like...
I think there's a glitch on PS4 where if you select southpaw for star fighters it says the left stick is for pitch and yaw which I want, but then playing it has thrust and yaw on left stick which I don't want...
Anybody else on PS4 able to test and see if they have the same issue?

EA website playing up for anyone else? Trying to log in but won't load the page correctly, so therefore can't get hold of my EU PS4 code as Amazon just don't wanna know. =(

Does anyone have a spare that they don't mind sharing with me please, to save me from this pain?

EDIT: nevermind guys finally got the EA website to work and now have my code. Any way to get a beta to remote download? 🤔

I'll check again later. Maybe I just missed the option.

And yeah overall it plays alot better. The feedback when shooting feels great. Maybe I'm wrong but also TTK feels higher?
