‘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…

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…
