Capital Ships

I have a feeling they will be playable this time around and players will be able to man the cannons like with zeppelins in BF1 and rain fire on their enemies.

  • I'm hoping that these Space Battles will have much more depth, and give players more freedom in Space.

    That'd be amazing. It may just be me, but I think it'd be pretty cool if there was a moment where everyone mans a cannon and just slugs it out until one capital ship remains standing, like in ROTS.

    I don't think they'll have the vehicle positions like in Battlefield due to only 24 people in space battles. Still will be awesome

    Would be fun as like the last minute of the mode or something like that. It would get boring quick.

    Oh this would be wicked beyond comprehension. I love the big ships and cruisers. Corellian corvette, star destroyers, neubulon type b frigate, rebel transport played a fairly prominent (visual only) role in battlefront 1 which I highly enjoyed.

    Full on space battles would be awesome. Imagine playing on Endor or RotS.

    It was weird that a Space Battle over Endor never made it into any of the Battlefronts, a Space Battle over Coruscant would be a fantastic Space Battle!!

    I'm willing to bet it's because of the size of the Super Star Destroyer.

    This would be great, but unlikely. :(

  • DICE has the ability to do this right. I wouldn't even mind if capital ships work nearly exactly like Zeppelins with different abilities fitting Star Wars, would still rock.

    Can you stop posting in blinding, unreadable, obnoxious colours.

    Yeah having people man the cannons like with the zeppelins would be sick. Way more immersive than just dog fights. Also destroying other destroyers and corvettes would be awesome.

    Also a command to send out ai shops for support would be cool too and missiles/proton torpedoes.

    You mean on ground maps?
    I still hope that we'll be able to board capital ships during Space Battles. I haven't played Battlefield 1, but I am sure that DICE will limit the time you can spent on the cannons.

    I meant during space battles. Air to ground would be too complex and would involve alot of bombers and Ywings and ground cannons. Unless you replace infantry with just ships and artillery.
  • The capital ships in Battlefront were a joke. The star destroyers in Death Star and Scarif are tiny. Hopefully they're better in Battlefront 2.

    Yeah they were too small. Having real sized ones come out of warp speed and just pass alongside the battlefield in space would be cool.

    Now the more I think of it, having real size capital ships on already large space maps might not be technically possible. Way more rendering and alot more blaster fire as well. I wish Dennis could give us a concrete answer.@Dice_Firewall.

    Well, they definitely got larger regardless. Pay close attention to the fighters below the one in focus, and compare that to how it was in the Death Star DLC.

    If you actually want to get Dennis' attention try @FireWall instead, just a friendly heads up. I would try twitter though for maximum effect.

    I agree though, if we could be able to man one of the turbolasers on the star destroyers via resource system that would be amazing.

    Cool thanks. @FireWall Is it possible to add capital ships and man their turbo lasers or other artillery, like in Battlefield 1 with the zeppelins, during space battles? Will the game be able to handle all that extra rendering and action?
