Nien Nunb, then legend we all want and need

  • See, now is the time for DICE and co to **** around with adding lesser known characters as free DLC.

    Not when they're slapped onto a Season Pass for an extra cost.

    That said, I'm all for seeing Nien Nunb be added to the game at some point in the future. He's legitimately fun to play as and him being playable in BF 2015 actually made care a bit about the character.

    Maybe they could make him a Resistance Hero as well as a Rebel one. Seeing as he's still around in The Force Awakens.
    We're finally getting the High Ground man! Wooooooooo!

    Naaaaa.

    Why not do every nonessential side character?

    Just saying

    If this is a comment implying that OOM-9 is a nonessential Side Character in The Phantom Menace

    Fun he is and full of hues.

    Nien I I'm kinda "meh" about but I really don't want to see Greedo make it back. Can't help but feel like that's a wasted hero slot. To each their own though.

    Maybe that argument could be made for BF1 but he's done now, they have all the assets. It'd be a waste not to add him.

    Yeah I also hope Nien returns and hopefully he brings Greedo and Dengar with him. I really want those minor characters as they are way more interesting than the guys we have seen in like 1.000.000 games and films and series.

    I'll be fine with Nien and Greedo returning if iconic characters such as Ben Kenobi and Tarkin come.

  • While there are other more important heroes than Nien, I wouldn't mind seeing him return at some point since they already have the assets. Keep Greedo out though. If they want to reuse his assets, then put him in the game as a corpse in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

    I dont see why not, its another hero. He just shouldnt come before old ben and tarkin, and maybe the r1 cast. I think nien is a good example of good marketing, as now tons of ppl now no about him thanks to his inclusion in eafront1

    Greedo and Nien are ready to roll. All devs need to do is port them and maybe change their skills abit or not at all. I always play them because they're fun.

    Yeah I know that part, but Nien Nunb is confirmed to return in TLJ. I hope we see him kill some Stormtroopers, he could be a Resistance Sniper.

    No information on that yet, I'm just hoping he gets some cool moments. A shootout against Phasma would be epic.

    I would love Wedge to return in 8 or 9 at some point, but I don't think it will happen. :(

    They asked Wedge's actor to return to TFA, but unfortunately, he refused. It would be great seeing him work alongside Poe.

    I have a feeling that they will kill Wedge off in one of the books set before TFA at some point, in order to explain his absence from the ST.

    Lando should be explained as well, he was in Shattered Empire and Empire's End, but he's nowhere to be seen in the Sequel Trilogy.

    Suppose you're right, I would probably have less of a problem with him being included if we got all of the main guys in first. I just get a feeling we aren't getting a super high amount of heroes so I'm just hoping they get a great hero selection and Greedo just doesn't seem all that great ( opinion of course.). I hear where you're coming from though.

    I think he had other acting commitments while TFA was being made, hence why he was only able to show up at Star Wars Celebration this year.

    Nien should have a missile guided by a camera and rc. Also a turret with slow guided missiles. Lastly an attachment that adds a barrage grenade launcher to the turret would be sick also. Modding your turret with different cards, imagine the possibilities.

    An interactive turret even, that fellow team players could use when it's deployed would be sweet.
    Even better when a kill is registered an assist point could be attributed to the hero player
