@Kevlegs Anything exclusive is good reason for pre-ordering and "Games can be fun" like Andrew is saying in EA Play, this looks like fun game to me.

@Kevlegs Hope the gameplay doesn't get too technical. I prefer a more arcade-like experience.

@FirstOrderSnoke It's going to be harder than in Battlefront for sure. No 3rd person view for starters, swapping shield power to engines etc.

Some new news for ya.

Players have the option of Standard and Hardcore Mode.

"When you start the story," explains Frazier, "we ask if you want the standard experience - which we’d expect most players to take - or a hardcore mode, which gets rid of a bunch of UI that helps you localize yourself in space, and makes you rely entirely on the readouts in the cockpit. So for the folks that are newer to the genre, I’d expect them to play standard, and for the folks that have tonnes of flight experience, they might want to try that out.”
 
 
 
Option to turn off seeing other players' ship customizations.

Catastrophic News... Please tell me it's a bad joke... 

Please @EA_Tom, @Charlemagne etc, consider and support Hotas joystick for console players too... 

 

It's so important... I can't understand this decision... Please add Hotas support on all platform ! 

 

May The Force Be With You, Always...

Yeah, HOTAS only on PC. for the moment...
"An EA Community Manager clarified today that HOTAS support on the upcoming multiplayer space combat game Star Wars: Squadrons is only confirmed for PC at the moment, and that the team has “nothing to share” regarding support on other platforms like PS4 or Xbox"

Honestly the devs/mods should pin this thread. This has been a real life saver.

@Kevlegs I just read the Pilot briefing. I like the concepts of Special ability when giving a Ship system full power, I believe everyone needs to learn how to manage the Power Systems of your Starfighter to survive and beat your opponents, at least this seems to be the concept the Pilot briefing is talking about.

May the force be with you!
