‘Star Wars: Squadrons’ Won’t Have Microtransactions

Are you ready for a new Star Wars game? EA has officially announced their long-awaited project code-named “Maverick”. Star Wars: Squadrons is a 5v5 dogfighting game releasing this Fall. It will feature a lot of customizations for your ships that you earn through gameplay. It has an emphasis on multiplayer but also has a single-player campaign, set in the time after the Battle of Endor. Initially, there were rumors that it might have microtransactions but those rumors have since been squashed. Motive Studios’ creative director Ian Frazier also said it isn’t a living game, meaning they won’t deliver post-launch content. “Our mindset has been very old school,” Frazier says. “We’re trying to say with this game that we have a $40 price point, we want to feel generous to players, and we want it to feel like a complete experience. Like ‘You gave us your $40. Here’s a game that you…

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Actor Opens Up About Shelved Third Entry

Sam Witwer had some things to say about the canceled plans for The Force Unleashed III. During a Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back watch with IGN, Witwer shared some thoughts about both The Force Unleashed II and III. As many of you will recall, the ending of II left us with a mighty cliffhanger. Starkiller handed Darth Vader over to the Rebels and III had meant to pick up where II left off. Only, that never happened. Witwer says: I’m not comfortable sharing everything we discussed, but the idea was, that was the biggest mistake ever, and that Vader, like he was toying with Luke, the Force Unleashed I and II games were all about Vader toying with Starkiller. And at some point, there would be a confrontation where Starkiller’s fighting Vader, and everything that worked before suddenly isn’t working now. He’s like, ‘I cut off your hand!,’ and Vader says, ‘That…

A new Star Wars space combat game is coming this year. Lucasfilm and EA Just revealed Star Wars: Squadrons, a new space combat game coming October 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and playable via virtual reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC.  Developed by Motive Studios, Star Wars: Squadrons promises thrilling first-person, 5v5 multiplayer space dogfights, monumental fleet battles, and an original story set during the final days of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

So far, early details…

Clone Wars Composer Speaks Out on Canceled Project Ragtag

EA’s canceled Star Wars game, known as “Project Ragtag” around the industry, seemed to be the setup for the perfect game. It was to be a single-player adventure set in the Star Wars universe, led by Amy Hennig, the mastermind behind Uncharted and the Jak and Daxter franchises. So what went wrong? Well, that’s a very good question. The game went into development in 2013 but was canceled in 2017 and the studio developing it was shuttered. They cited a dwindling interest in single-player games, but that sure doesn’t see to be the case for Jedi: Fallen Order. We may never know exactly what happened, but as the years pass, we have seen some of the people involved in that project come forward and share some info about their role on it. That’s exactly what happened with Kevin Kiner’s interview with Inverse. Here’s a snippet of that: Kiner says he…

MACE WINDU – Star Wars Fan Film

It’s fan film time again and I love everything about this one. For one, I’m a big fan of Mace Windu and here we get to see a young Windu in action. Next, the acting was really great and the costuming was of professional level and keeping with the time period. It has the staple of a great Star Wars film – an awesome lightsaber duel. And the story is really great. While it’s a short film, you get immersed it in right away and I can’t wait to see more films by them. I wish they’d do more Windu but I’m sure anything they produce will be a fun, entertaining watch. Nearly 20 years before Phantom Menace, young Jedi Knight Mace Windu locates a missing Jedi. What he encounters is unexpected. See for yourself here: From the creators, Full Fledged Pro: Subscribe for more cinematic short films! Thanks for…

It was started by Christen Adler and anyone can sign to make their voice heard to EA about the game.

Why PALPATINE Wanted DARTH MALGUS As His Apprentice

How much do you know about how Palpatine respected Darth Malgus? The Stupendous Wave brings us this great video that talks about why Palpatine wanted Darth Malgus as his apprentice. This is a really fun and interesting Star Wars Explained video, especially if you’re a fan of Dark Side characters. “I fight because that is what I was made to.” Darth Sidious saw so much he admired in Darth Malgus. Vader needed to draw inspiration from someone – that someone was Malgus. Sidious wanted Vader to be like Malgus, all the things that made his strong and a good soldier. Malgus knew his place within the Empire. He was a warrior, a soldier, and he was made to fight. He did so very well and this was what Darth Sidious saw in him that earned his respect.

Star Wars Galaxies: A Community Together

For the first time in our history, the entire globe is facing a crisis at the same time. The pandemic has changed the lives of everyone in different ways, but through it, we are finding new ways to connect with the world around us. For many, online gaming has been a way to keep occupied, connect with others, and keep their spirits up during social isolation. Swg Legends decided to make a great and uplifting video about the community, with positive messages shared in a compilation. I think this is a very great video to watch, even if you don’t currently play SWG Legends.

We asked Star Wars Galaxies players to send a video message sharing a positive message with the community. We had so…

Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate

All of this social isolation means I’m spending even more time at home than usual (and that’s saying something) and I’m finding one way I enjoy passing that time is with new videos. And if it’s Star Wars, well, you know I’m gonna watch it. Star Wars fan films are totally my thing. The good, the bad, the ugly – and everything in between! I’ve said it before but there’s something great about even the “bad” fan films. The spirit of Star Wars that goes into each one is special in and of itself. Here’s the latest one I’m enjoying: Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate. It’s just over 10 minutes long and is the final part of a trilogy, so be sure to watch the others first, if you haven’t. While this one is not Hollywood-level acting or videography, it has a charge to it. I also really like the costuming…

Just why did Darth Vader hate Grand Admiral Thrawn so much? It’s time for another Star Wars Explained video from The Stupendous Wave. In this video, they read an excerpt from the Thrawn novel and explain to us why there was so much beef between Vader and Thrawn. It’s right at 9 minutes long and gives a lot of understanding of the relationship between Darth Vader and the Grand Admiral and will help you understand just why Vader hated him so much. If you’ve got a few minutes, I definitely recommend it. This video covers it all: Did you learn something new in this video? What was your favorite part? Would you add anything? Also, let us know if you’ve read the Thrawn novel mentioned in the video. Join the forum discussion on this post

Is This the Worst Star Wars Game Ever?

We are all about the Star Wars games here – it’s what our site was started for – and I’ve been a fan for all of my life. I love every Star Wars game I’ve ever seen, pretty much. I like the new games and I like old-school games and anything that brings the magic of Star Wars to a new or broader audience, or that brings us Star Wars in a new way, then I’m all for it. But every now and then, there’s a Star Wars game that’s questionable. I have to ask myself, “Do you like this because it’s a decent game, or just because it has a Star Wars theme?” And this was one of those games: Star Wars Super Bombad Racing. Who remembers this one? I used to play this one as a kid and honestly, I loved it. Maybe young me just didn’t know…

ABOUT THE EPISODE: My name is Shahbaz Sarwar and I’m a man with a dream. A dream of taking my 16 years of accumulated experience from my time in the film industry and take a shot at getting the attention of Lucasfilm and Disney, so that they will meet with me and my team. The goal? To pitch a unique story in the Star Wars universe that will have the scale of Game of Thrones; the drama of Breaking Bad; the meticulousness of The Wire, and the visceral action of “The Raid”. Coming all the way from Copenhagen, Denmark, it seems…
