The Emperor’s Dark Aura looks like a sandstorm


Does it not? Lol. He looks good nevertheless. And this video has increased the hype for seeing Yoda in-game!

    Just like Anakin Skywalker, I also don't like sand. I personally prefer snow over sand. :/

    I guess the Emperor has traveled to a different universe, more specifically to a world of Pokémon. There, he must have learned the move Sandstorm through a TM37, and mixing it with his own power. Then he traveled back to his own Star Wars Universe and will use it in BF2.

    Also, the way the Emperor raises his hands at the start of the video........... :#

    Yeah, that was a little weird...

    But over all, I LOVE IT! Dark Aura is kind of a bland ability. I love the concept, but it just feels so, well, basic. Chain Lightning was 110% going to make a return, but I feel that it looks so, well, lack luster. However, that's just me. Actually, I'd think it would be cool if Palpatine could throw enemies away with the sheer power of his Chain Lightning, which could then do minimal shock damage to enemies. Actually, Chain Lightning and Electrocute could have been the same ability.

    I'm getting off topic. Anyway, Dark Aura probably should've looked just like a shadowy aura, enveloping the Emperor and the area around him. this is, well...

    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

    you have to remember a lot of heroes abilities may not seem very good for killing. But they have to make abilities that will be useful for HvV. Dark aura is definitely one of these

    Still, that visual effect... ew lol. Not something they need to change or should change, but, just, ew.

  • Actually, looking at it, I think it's just the Theed Palace's polished floors that give it the appearance of a sand-storm.

  • No dash!! I assume it’s for balance but I really like his “I am the senate” dash from the last game.

    It's in the game, just as the role and not an ability.
  • His intro animation with his hands is s-tupid.

    Lol yea but it was “menacing”

  • The visual effect looks horrible. But the ability actually sounds pretty good, might be a bit to powerful.

    Does this mean Vader takes damage when he’s inside the “Dark Aura?” LOL :D

    His Senate Shuffle was converted into the Force Dash ability. Either use the D-Pad or click the block ability and move in a direction. Similar to Maul
  • I honestly don't mind it.

    Looks good to me. I'm hyped for the game. BF2 is looking infinitely better than BF1 in every way possible.

    The organ music, (in the very beginning of video), on the other hand... I always cringe when I hear it.

    Cheers,

    You're right, honestly. You saved me the hassle of pointing out all of these things lol, I honestly think the Emperor was a lot more menacing back in SWBF15. I'm not a fan of how decrepit he looks, all hunched over and what not, he waddles when he walks/moves too.. Definitely not a fan of that. Pre-scar Palpatine is a must along with a normal non hunch stance.

    As for his skills there's honestly nothing outstanding, he has a electrocution ability that doesn't look that different from his normal base lighting attack in terms of visuals, apart from the lightning breaking off into their own little path running across the floor. The effects of chain lightning has been dissected and turned into another ability which is called electrocute. As for Dark aura.. That looks like a sewage & crud vapour storm. Let me stop though :joy:

  • Not just any sandstorm..... Darude Sandstorm...

    I bet Anakin will hate that
