Question about this "Assault on Theed" Game mode

Basically "Assault" is going to be a new game mode. So what do you guys expect this game mode to be like, My best guess is similar to operations from battlefield

  • I think it's going to be Walker Assault for all eras (but they obviously can't call it "Walker" assault anymore, since MTTs aren't walkers).

    The description talks about the villains' behemoth vehicles slowly moving toward an objective vital to the heroes. Sounds like Walker Assault to me.
  • I hope it's a kind of Hero Assault.
    In case it's a kind of Walker Assault then it's hopefully not linear and on open large maps.
    Maybe it's the new name for Conquest?

    It will be the same as Walker Assault but will have different phases to it. Im not quite sure what that means but we will just have to wait until E3. 5 days left!

    Not "new", just Walker Assault without the "Walker".
    I imagine that MTTs replace AT-ATs on the PT maps and HAWs replace AT-ATs on the ST maps.
    Beyond that, I don't see it being different from WA, particularly in its linear style of gameplay. People may not like it, but an objective-specific mode like this needs to be linear to avoid people messing about and not playing the objective.

    Walker assault except with varying types of "walkers" that do very different things with slightly different objectives. Sounds amazing the amount of different things.

    From the description of the gameplay reveal it sounds like it's going to be very similar to infiltration. Because it begins talking about space battles, then to the plains of nabbo then to the entrance of the place doors. It seems like it's going to be a multi stage gamemode. This is just my speculation so don't take it as fact.

    We have linear maps now and people ignore the objective.

  • Its going to be walker assault. It even describes escorting a vehicle. I really hope not.

    The description talks about the villains' behemoth vehicles slowly moving toward an objective vital to the heroes. Sounds like Walker Assault to me.

    ^^^^^^^ This

    Except at the end of the level Bill and Ted's phone booth crashes down on the objective and all the Star Wars heroes pop out, along with Napoleon, Wild Bill, and Death.

    True, but allowing players to be able to fully control the mode's primary vehicle (MTT, AT-AT, HAW) has the potential to make the objective that much harder to achieve. Thus it needs to be on rails and have a linear progression through the mode to at least have the premise of being an objective-based mode.

    That is why I said free control except for WA.

    MTTs yes but not with AT-TEs. AT-TEs would be easy for the player to control. They aren't even strong compared to an AT-AT.

    If the Republic can escort vehicles for the assault game mode, then it is likely that Juggernaut Tanks could be the objectives instead of AT-TEs.

    Those are fast though. They would get to the objective in no time!

    Interesting question: where are the AT-TEs? They weren't mentioned as part of this "Assault" mode, so will they will be in it or another mode? Let's face it, if they're not in the game then that will disappoint a lot of people.

    From the description of the gameplay reveal it sounds like it's going to be very similar to infiltration. Because it begins talking about space battles, then to the plains of nabbo then to the entrance of the place doors. It seems like it's going to be a multi stage gamemode. This is just my speculation so don't take it as fact.

    Where does it talk about space?

    Ahhh. I misread it. Thank you for pointing that out. It might be, but it doesn't outright say space battles.

    There might be space battles, but I would think for this they will just be in the sky.

    Where does it talk about the space battle and the plains of Naboo? I'm gonna have to reread the details
