Well, we'll have to wait and find out.  :shrug:

That looks like heavier firepower than the regular blaster. But man it's exciting.

Close examination shows that it's this weapon: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/DLT-19_heavy_blaster_rifle

Well I didn't know the exact type, but it just looked heavier than the classic E-11. Probably a heftier support class we're seeing there. Kinda hope they keep it class based like the old ones, and that rocket gunning is still a thing (oh I love my rockets!)  :wub:

I wonder how much they'll be pulling from the old EU material. Other new media has done so (such as the Purge Trooper, TIE Defender and AT-MP being in Star Wars Commander or the B2 Grapple Droid from the ROTS game)

I hope they at least bring back the Rebel hovertanks. It would suck to have no ground vehicles for them.

There's a play-tester (which he satisfactorily proved) on another forum who just confirmed it's 1st person and 3rd person... 3rd person by default!
He won't confirm anything else due to the non-disclosure agreement.

Take it with salt obviously, because he might just be a really good fake.

Ooh! That's interesting! So they do get Battlefront. I wonder what will be up for Single Player. If they got that much right, then Single Player may be more than just a campaign. Count me sold if that's true.

Eh, even so, I'l wait for the gameplay. :P

Who the heck am I kidding? After I buy my bass all my money is going to a new gaming rig/season-pass pre-order of SWBF.

It'd be nice to see the pics in proportion. :g:

Otherwise, that does look pretty epic. I was anticipating the new Episode VII armor instead, but this is still awesome.

You could easily have told this was going to be based on the classic stormtrooper, especially as a picture of the Episode VII stormtrooper was posted a few hours back.

I'm curious as to what this unit will actually do. Looks to me like the equivalent of the classic Shock Trooper unit, so probably heavy weapons.
