      Agreed. At this point anything other than gameplay is pretty much just a short film unconnected to the game.

    It took me a sec to identify and I'm not entirely sure I got it right, but at 0:48 ish, they seem to be salvaging a Venator-class. You're looking at it from the rear, with the bridge on the right side.

    (Edit: Now that I'm looking at it on the big screen, that's what it is. Seems to be the protagonist's day job? Well, the venators have to go somewhere.)

    Interesting setting they chose. The "trust no one" part makes me think it could be a decent RPG, but they announced it as an action adventure, so that makes me think it'll have the RPG-qualities of a Far Cry. Bummer. I'd love a new KOTOR.

      So say we all. It's truly a shame that Disney sold EA the exclusive rights to make Star Wars franchise games... just imagine what we could have had if they had opened it up to Indie developers...

        It's a shame Disney was sold the rights in the first place. I'm actually a fan of the movies they put out since the acquisition, but they've consistently dropped the ball in every other medium, especially games.

        Now there are rumors that Episode IX is going to retcon some parts of TLJ. Regardless of your opinion on the movies, it's seems to me that retconning anything from a previous film is nothing short of a disaster for the franchise (again).

        I'm convinced that something as insane as releasing Star Wars to the public domain would have been better than letting Disney get their grubby hands on it.

        1000% done with billion dollar franchises. Where's my indie artist Star Wars replacement?

      There will probably be RPG influences and light implementations like so many titles have, probably some minor character customization. Stuff like that are a necessity in all types of games and genres these days, for reasons i believe we all here on tildes know are pretty obvious.

      We can only hope Disney decides to sell the rights to other developers in the future to really get a Star Wars game we all deserve and be hoping for since titles like KOTOR.

      I'm guessing the scene twenty-five seconds into the trailer, when Cal opens the door and we see the Jedi starfighter with the astromech droid, is probably on the same ship. Seems like it's still daytime in that scene, so he probably gets to work on this Venator, encounters a lot of iconography and history tied to the Jedi, gets his juices flowing, and ends up saving his friend.

      Which is actually super lame, because I didn't want to know that, and it shouldn't have been in the trailer.

      So I really hope this trailer doesn't have any relevance to the actual story, because getting spoiled like this on when and how Cal reveals himself is a bummer.

    of note: EA has stated on twitter that there will be "No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them." for this game so it looks like consumer sentiment has at least knocked that off the board for the time being. now, if EA wants to imitate the stereotype a lot of online consumers expect of them this would be a covert way of pushing a DLC pie slice model or something similar to microtransactions but--for now, at least--i'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt and say they've decided to cave on at least one thing that might eat into their profits just for a slightly better product.

      Wasn't there a rumor of Bob Iger making a call to EA after the loot box fiasco?, it could be possible they got an ultimatum.

      Also, I have no problem with (substantial) DLC whatsoever. By denying the "micro" part from "transactions, this might actually mean big, juicy DLC missions which can be great if done well (and easily ignored if not).

    Cinematic trailer tells me nothing of the game. Kind of useless to put a game trailer up, if you do not show any gameplay. I would not get my hopes up for this.
