    “mobile strategy game”

    I think they mean mobile money farm.

    Let me guess, it will be about a band of rebels (or stormtroopers) led by a feisty posh girl with adventures that revolve around the time of Episode 4. Microtransactions included.

    • August 16, 2017 at 11:06 pm

      Nope, thanks for playing.

      Set between Episode 6 and 7, and the games they reference in the survey imply it’s either another Clash of Clans clone like Commander, or in the Age of War/ Lords Mobile vein. But hey, don’t let that get in the way of your misogyny. You do you.

        Oh boy, these people that think they know others just by reading their comments, you implying I am a mysongynist is like me implying you’re an asshole judging just by your need to reply to my coment with a PC label.

    Rise to Power? Strategy game!? Star Wars!!!

    Mobile… Way to kick me in droids.

    Yeah I wasted enough of my life on galaxy of heroes. Not going there again. It’ll be micro transaction heavy too, almost guaranteed.

    • August 17, 2017 at 10:04 am

      yes, they’re not going to make it for free. Luckily, I tired of all computer games ever seemingly overnight a few years ago.

    They can’t even keep Star Wars Commander running properly. Recently, nobody on IOS could get on for like 5 days. Thanks, I was in war. Wasn’t working yesterday, either. Not to mention the game is so laggy. Force Arena is fun sometimes, though. Never played GoH.

    I’ll try this one out, but I’d like it if they fixed their other shit first.

    • August 17, 2017 at 4:48 am

      Completely different developers. SW Commander was made by Disney Interactive. This is being made by EA Capital Games. They can’t fix a game that they don’t have anything to do with.

      • August 17, 2017 at 1:25 pm

        Didn’t notice that, thanks.

    and visceral games title? for when? 2034? i ll be like 45 years old

    • August 17, 2017 at 10:16 am

      I’ll be drawing my pension and telling the neighbourhood kids to get of my lawn 🙂

    Star Wars games used to define/redefine their respective genres, Dark Forces, Tie Fighter, KOTOR – it’s a shame that the only titles we see now seem to be of the me too, variety.

    • August 17, 2017 at 3:06 pm

      Dark Forces defined FPS? News to me.

      Wing Commander was around before Tie Fighter.
      And KOTOR was just the next evolution of the Baldur’s Gate style. All great games. But not really genre-defining.

        • August 17, 2017 at 6:01 pm

          maybe X-Wing and KOTOR.

    • August 17, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      You’re forgetting Galaxies. Until Sony nerfed the ever loving sh*t out of it. Groundbreaking title at the time for its sheer scope of game play.

  • August 17, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    LOL people being salty

  • August 17, 2017 at 3:30 pm

    Why are people so butt-hurt? It’s not like EA is holding a gun to your head-forcing you to buy it, lol, don’t like it?, then don’t buy it! 🙂

    • August 17, 2017 at 3:38 pm

      I think it’s free – with microtransactions.

  • August 17, 2017 at 7:36 pm

    Another mobile game? How many has that been now in the last four years? 16 I believe Yet, we’ve had two console game since 2013 and only one of those exclusively on current generation systems.

    There’s a big console market to cater to that I feel is being mostly ignored. Granted the early 2000’s had a string of train wreck titles where every other game was shite, but this is too far in the opposite direction. We need a middle ground.

    • August 17, 2017 at 7:51 pm

      I feel ya, we are about to get a slew of new titles though-starting with Battlefront II in November, which looks to be one of the best, if not the best SW game ever made, Amy Hennig is in charge of Visceral’s untitled game(probably 2018 release), Respawn are making one and Motive also have something in the works, Bioware are probably working on something too.

    I like the same movie in the year in because the film is very good to see. I’ve seen it several times, this is a site that I often see because of its best quality COPY HERE
