Community Transmission - A look ahead at what’s coming in 2019

  • I hardly ever play this game anymore, and hardly ever visit here, but this update sounds pretty good.

    The co-op PvE sound great. I'd love a OT era version of it at some point. It doesn't sound like it will be playable offline with AI, but hopefully that will also happen. It would be another large games mode for single players.

    Instant action seems great.

    The era select. Yes, at last. Now the thing Dice has to do is port over those fantastic OT maps from BF1. I've no interest in the sequel trilogy (does anyone care about The Rise of Skywalker?) the clone wars has had a ton of content, it would be great to see some focus on the OT. Luke's ANH skin is a good start.
  • Why the decisions I make skins community quests? Surely it would be more beneficial for the game to charge credits for them. People have tons of credits and literally nothing to spend them on.
  • There are some very interesting things like CoOp and Instant Action...others definately less exciting. However I can't care less of the new movie, I want Rogue One characters and maps..
  • @F8RGE when can we expect the August patch notes?
  • Instant Action is sounding awesome. I so hope Capital Supremacy gets additional support for the other eras because that then means it will work for Instant Action too. I really would love OT era for Instant Action.

    I think they said they were looking into getting OT and ST content for Capital Supremacy so here is to hoping in early 2020.

    You really need to work on your communication. For months now we were lead to believe that August's "New Ways to Play" would mean that a PVE experience would be coming this month. Literally all month I was under the impression that this would be happening in August. What do we get this month? Lack of communication and pretty much an outright lie. So adjusting maps, spawn points and adding a timer is a new way to play? I don't think so. That's two months in a row where there's no real new content added to this game.

    How many times do you plan on dangling carrots for months only to tell us a week before the update that we're not getting what we were told we were? This has happened before and it is annoying.

    Just stop.
  • Can we please make CS troopers only?
    Rise of Skywalker content will be ruined by Hero spam :/
  • @F8RGE will the new co-op allow split-screen as well or will it only be online only? It would be nice to play the new mode in couch co-op with my kids. Thanks!

    Possibly the best CT I've seen so far. The only thing lacking, for me anyway, is any mention of new blasters.

    Some cool stuff here, but I am extremely saddened by the lack of Ahsoka and Ventress. I suspect that once the PT season ends, the OT and ST fans won't let you come back to PT for another year without major complaints, so I was really hoping you guys would release them before you start the ST season in December....

    I am also disappointed by the lack of new weapons or mods for the default weapons.
  • Very Nice! :) :) Thank You! :) :)

    Awesome! Love the offline content and clone commandos! Republic Commando is my favorite Star Wars game.
  • AH Ah!!

    Finally, they are there we all knew it right! and they actually reload their dc-17M *o* and all the animation, what exquisite attention to details!

    They also might have the wrist blade melee attack... we might later on get the sniper attachment as star card right?

    O_O!! we wil lget new blasters too! tee eh eeh Q.Q

    Finally can spawn on Cps by choice... and al lthe rest QoL changes, refreshing, can't wait to see what is coming for 2020!

    I am burning now.
  • I like how you snuck in Reinforcement Appearences

    @UrbanGlitch what are you talking about
    "You Don't Know the Power of the Dark Side"

  • I wish you guys would fix the lighting on the menu more, even in these screenshots on the droids it's not really doing the skin justice because everything is a depressingly lit blue tone.
  • Please don't force us to fill with randoms in the PvE mod, that sentence "old or new friends" is just scaring me. Or at least allow us to play with a friend on Instant Action.
    The way you say thing I'm 100% sure that PvE will be a 4 players only online mod, and instant action a single player offline mod.
    Is there really no way for a PC plyaer to play with a single friend ? I just want to play with my gf, and on PC, we don't have access to split-screen (for no reason) and now that PvE and offline is getting better, I'm sure that there will still be no way to make a simple 2 players mod.

    Anyway.. that's some great news so I am not going to be negative about it, September update will be one of the best. I can't wait to chill in some instant action.

    But please, make 2 players instant action or 2 players PvE happen... I can already picture how painful it will be to have to use the matchmaking system just to find 2 random useless players to play a fast game with my girlfriend...

    The best thing would be to be able to invite a friend before launching arcade or instant action. It's probably not hard to do but it would be a game changer, at least for me.
  • I'm glad for commandos and for spawning on point, but clone wars again until the end of the year? Well at least there's a Luke skin coming for ot at least.

    They had already mentioned felucia ages ago. What else did you expect to happen over the next couple months? A CW map drop with OT reinforcements? Haha

    An actual surprise? Felucia is known for months now, commandos have been datamined in the beginning of the year, one skin for luke (cool but are other developpers than map ones), changes of cs ship are probably already used asets and spawn on command post (which should have been in the mod at the start) is code they already have for mmmhhh, fifteen years at dice?
    Oh I don't know, maybe the pve mod to not be clone wars only or a port of ga galactic civil war maps to cs? It's not like they have the isd insides ready from the campaign, mon cal ships textures and some interiors at the ready from campaign and some random crates to change the ground maps.

    You had a question mark about clone wars until the end of the year. It's odd to wonder why they are doing CW for the next couple of months when a clone wars map was what was announced a long time ago. I'm being generous as well in letting you get away with "until the end of the year" when it's only 2 months and they already said they are working on sequel trilogy content.

    Moving forward! this game has become dynamic :)

    Nice to see new weapon, because clone com. gets one, at least. Two new maps is great :) Ship maps for HvV too.

    Luke should get more skins. pilot, bespin.
    And Maul/Vader/palpatine all need 2.
    What about ewoks for main modes? Their our only hope
  • Now that the PVE boys will have their own mode, can we get rid of A.I. in CS? They get in the way of what could be a really good PVP mode. Also add in different era maps please.
  • Yall throw “heavily requested” around way too much
  • Omg commando!!!!! Amazing!!!!!
  • Will the co-op mode be playable offline? AKA splitscreen?
  • Six words.... YES!
  • Will bots use skins? are they customizable?
  • Thank you, @F8RGE, for focusing on content that doesn’t revolve around heroes. This development is long overdue. Y’all made the right decision this time.

    Agreed not sure how they would implement but it would be amazing if it has say one option to play alone/with invited friend and another to find other players online.
    I'd also like it to eventually come to offline alongside IA just so there isn't the reliance on servers and perhaps some game rule customisation (since coop is sounding similar to GA whilst IA similar to CS).

    My guess is that this will be a 4 player static coop lobby. You can play with friends, but if it’s less than four it’ll fill with randoms.

    Brilliant. You figured a way out to moderate players behaviors and still encouraging us to keep playing online. An elegant move for a more civilized times.

    On the other hand, whenever premades kidnap lobbies, we'll have a way to keep playing the game, so the addiction will remain. You're going to screw my personal life up hard :D

    It'd be great if you could add support for local multiplayer though. Multiplayer is cool, online, offline; solo is cool; the more options we have, the more casual players can join to understand why we like the game that much and eventually will give it a try to online combat.

    I'll buy several crystals for both, PS4 and XBox on September, thanks for all of the surprises.

    Finally, you said Felucia is going to be the most beautiful map, it's hard to believe when we have beautiful maps like Theed. Sometimes I choose a roof in the middle of the battle in Moss Eisley just to look up the beautiful horizon, or in Endor I'm watching the waterfalls and the caves, walking through big trunks, while my uncivilized teammates are fighting against our opponents.

    Just to be clear, are we not getting the two ship maps in offline Arcade?

    Also, is it really too much to ask that we get offline modes like Cargo and Droid Run added to Offline Arcade? Even with the new large scale mode it's just not enough content. every year Call of Duty rleases a game with multiple game modes that are able to be played online or offline at launch.

    I think a lot of the community would also like to have Battlefront 2015 maps added to the game. Death Star 1 and the Carbon Freezing Chamber come to mind.

    We also have ongoing bugs that need to be fixed offline. The two that come to mind immediately are the specialist repulsor cannon rarely causes damage on the first shot and anytime you play Arcade Team Battle and play 2 vs 2 or 4 vs 4 the friendly A.I. will only spawn and respawn as Assault Class Troopers.

    Oh thank you for your generosity and letting them "get away with" things. The entitlement people have.

    Now all EA and dice have to do is adding SINGAPORE ping sites they took away in 2017. Its 2019 and they have been ignoring SEA communities far too long. Please DICE and EA . Bring back those Singapore Asian ping sites/servers.
  • How about Server Browser? So I can actually play with other people here in Brazil? Instead of seeing everyone changing server to USA to play with a ping of 250
    I'm having so much fun on BFV; wish I could do the same
  • So DICE is confident their AI is finally good enough for vehicles, heroes, reinforcements, and objectives, then? Here's hoping that's true and they are actually capable now.

    We all know the reason AI have been limited to starfighters and standard classes in the modes that only require they move and shoot at you (at first) is because of how shallow it was. They finally worked in Capital Supremacy as extra forces, but in both new modes they'll be the sole focus - it'll be easy to tell if they're not very good.

    So we'll see what happens. Still excited for the possibility! Sometimes I want a fun Star Wars experience that is more of a power-fantasy - something that you can't quite get against human opponents unless you try really hard, which isn't super relaxing.
    PRIORITY LISTS
    HEROES:
    Commander Cody - the Empire has Iden, the First Order has Phasma. Give us a soldier-based hero for the Republic!
    GA MAPS
    Utapau
    Mygeeto
  • Thanks EA, Dice, and all involved that continue to add to and support this great game! Best community transmission yet IMHO!
  • Legobrick100, exactly. I want Utapau and Mygeeto (but for Mygeeto we need Ki-Adi Mundi as hero too). I also want Mace Windu, Jango Fett, Padme, Greedo, and of course Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress. And maybe a recycled map from Battlefront 1 - Scarif, a bit remastered and maybe Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic too. A pity that no more Starfighter maps have been announced, the assault on Coruscant map from Episode III would have been amazing. With these additions it would be pretty much complete in my opinion. I can't wait to play the Felucia map. I really like this planet and it was fun to play on this planet in Battlefront II 2005 and The Force Unleashed games.
  • For someone who doesn't think Clone Commandos as a huge addition this CT isn't on EA Play reveal level.

    Nevertheless this was well made and told! I hope all CT would be like this. <3
  • AHA! Other eras...

    This is great news! Here's to hoping they port all the OT planets over to Instant Action and maybe even some of the DLC OT planets from BF2015... Scarif anyone?

    It's a figure of speech when referring to giving someone more leeway in a conversation than they deserve. Even if you didn't know that, couldn't you of figured that out for yourself? Haha get with the times guy

    When will DICE remove the star cards from the game so that Battlefront 2 will finally rely on skill?

    In September, four player online co-op is coming to Battlefront. For this experience, you will team up with three other players (old friends or new) for a large scale PvE adventure.
    I hope there's matchmaking for this mode.
