    Graphics seem to have really been upgraded; I don't know if that has actually been coded, or whether it is just the style. I did notice noise from my console's fan increased as I was playing this.

    Game modes in the beta include Galactic Assault - which is a lot like Walker Assault, Starfighter Assault, Strike - which is like capture the flag, and two single/co-op player arcade modes; one is Hero vs AI and the other is like Team Death Match you+AI vs AI. I didn't try co-op yet.

    Infantry gameplay seems much more like Battlefield than the Battlefront 1. Squad play is loosely encouraged, although I couldn't tell who was in my squad from the mini-map or player name (everyone looks like a blueberry).

    There are four classes; Assault, Heavy, Officer and Specialist. They feel quite different when you play them and have their own Star Card abilities. There only seem to be 2 weapons per class right now, but I guess that will grow when the real game comes out. You can craft upgrades to weapons using crafting credits that you get through crates; you earn crates through completing challenges in game (50 kills, play 10 mins as Assault, etc.). I didn't spot a "purchase crates" with cash option in the Beta, but I reckon that is coming.

    They've got rid of the battlefield pickups concept completely, so no more hanging around waiting for the hero icon to appear. Instead you earn battle points whilst playing and these let you choose from "reinforcements" (vehicles, heroes, stronger troopers). You have to decide whether to spend battle points on the lower cost, less powerful reinforcements or hang on to them and spend later on more powerful reinforcements.

    Star Cards still exist to give you in game abilities and enhancements, for example swapping the standard thermo-detonator for a trip-mine. You get these through crates.

    Starfighter also uses battle points and star card abilities. I found this mode to be incredibly confusing; there is so much more happening on screen now than with SW:BF1! I normally place near the top of the table in SW:BF1, so it is going to be interesting to see how I fare with this.


    TL;DR
    + Graphics
    + Customisation

    - Starfighter is confusing
    - Buy-to-win with crates

    ? Completely different feel from the first game


    Here's a twitch of the game...
    First 35 minutes of this video are the Galactic Assault mode, then the Strike mode until 1h10 when I move onto Hero Arcade mode.

    And another twitch showing Starfighter Assault for the first 20 mins, followed by TDM Arcade mode.

    Thanks for the feedback Tonka.

    I gave the beta a few tries. The ground assault was fun, but I didn't get too deep into it and play with heroes, use the cards, etc. Combat wise felt much like the first BF.

    The space combat, however, was a mess for me... like watching a four year old pilot an airplane. Guess I'll need practice.

    I love Star Wars and all the previous battlefront games, so I'll get it eventually. The campaign looks amazing too from the previews. Just hope more people play it and it has staying power unlike the first (not that it was bad, just shallow).

    I noticed the the space combat was much easier for me when I turned "barrel rolls' (or something like that) off in the options.
