Yeah, people deservedly don't/didn't trust EA, considering how they've handled the license up until now. Still wouldn't be shocked if they announce paid DLC next year some time.
At this point in time, why would DLC be bad in a couple of months? If this turns out to be a GOTY contender, peoples will beg for more content.
As long as gacha/micro-transactions don’t slip in, it would still be a surprising effort coming from EA.

pre-ordered on steam, can’t wait for next week! When is pre-load though? 55GB :o

I'm only worried about a cash n grab dlc; I don't trust EA that much lol!

I'm sure I read on the old thread, that one person had the preload up on their Xbox. If that was indeed the case, then it shouldn't be too long.

Man has the discourse surrounding this game changed a lot. I remember how a lot of people felt like it was just some linear 4-8 hour experience with no depth and utterly generic. So glad to see a lot of people give it a second chance and come around to it
well, it was a likely scenario. EA isn’t exactly a trustworthy company, but if a game is good, then it simply proves us wrong and the narrative changes, simple as that

I guess Respawn delivering with 3 titles funded by EA was not enough to have a little bit of trust in the game.

Think I'll wait for the actual reviews but this sounds promising. This guy could be anyone though, you never know...

No microtransactions ever if you are curious. Does mean that the preorder orange lightsaber isn't going to be available again

"Rotting away"

I've read some horrible opinions on this board but... just wow.
I've heard some bad takes, but wow. We have an overabundance of multiplayer games, and we have had a dearth of SP Star Wars games for years. Then someone says a studio is rotting away. Almost a clown quality quote. There are already two major MP Star Wars games for people to play. I'm glad to finally get a single player experience.

The more I read about this game the more hyped I am!

Will pick it up after my exam at the start of december.

Should have known better than to doubt Respawn after Titanfall 2, smh.

Hopefully this game does well for them.

smells like EA marketing

especially the way it is written and formatted
Heaven forbids we have educated internet commenters.

Did it ever occur to you that it’s written and formatted that way because - as the guy said - he’s deliberately trying to ape the structure of typical reviews?

I don’t like Dark Souls combat *shrug*
I don't know what specifically you don't like about DS combat, but it's evident from what has been shown so far that this game doesn't follow the model very strictly. Other than the larger philosophy at work being "you need to kind of be careful about what you're doing instead of running up to guys and mashing a button," I don't think it looks nearly as restrictive as Souls combat.

I understand the EA distrust part. Its just there were early signs around the time of E3 that this was gonna be a potential GoTY contender like the Edge magazine impressions, the Gameinformer impressions and the fact the game was nominated for Game of the Show

Wasn't there also lots of hype surrounding Anthem iirc?

i understand not liking the difficulty ,but the god tier combat? nah man
Dark Souls combat is only good because of the difficulty. Without the high stakes, the simplicity of the movesets would take center stage and it would quickly become stale. Dodging, blocking, and spacing wouldn't matter nearly as much. Souls combat is good because the player has to mentally engage with it fully and use their tools wisely.

Wasn't there also lots of hype surrounding Anthem iirc?
There may have been before anyone actually got hands on. I guess my media exposure is somewhat limited but I never heard a positive word about it once it was in playable form. People may have said "flying is cool" but otherwise reactions were tempered.

There was. But Jedi Fallen Order actually had a live unedited 15 minute to show to the public unlike what happened to Anthem during E3. And the development for this game seems miles smoother than anything Anthem was.
Aah ok, thanks. Yeah I've read the horror stories.

Hmm this wasn't really on my radar at all but these comparisons to a metroidvania certainly have me interested now
