It was included in the interview that was done with Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games. I have not played any of their games, so excitement will have to wait until I know more about the game. Will this just be Assassin's Creed in space with laser swords? Will it be Tom Clancy in space with laser swords? Will they come up with something unique? Will it be more RPG focused, action/adventure focused, or a mix of elements? There are some interesting possibilities, but too little is known now to be excited.

This is the one I'm watching . Open World, Story Driven, Star Wars. Sounds good so far.

I was personally hoping for a sandbox 'SWG-2' type mmorpg so i'm not that excited now tbh.

However, i would like to get more excited, so can someone please compare this to some other previous similar type games?

Are we talking like , for example, 'Skyrim' but the STAR WARS version?

We don't know much about it but considering its an Ubisoft game I would expect it to be something similar to Assassin's Creed or the Division 2, since the studio that develops the latter is the same working on this new game.

I don't know what to think. I'm not the biggest fan of Ubisoft these days and the only game from Massive Entertainment that I played was World in Conflict and the expansion Soviet Assault. I really enjoyed both of them however they were strategy games, not open world games.

I wonder what era it will be set during? My money's on the clone wars.

The Starfleet is a sea. It is endless, cannot be beaten, and given enough time turns even the strongest rocks to sand.

This is also what I'm wondering. Classic StormTroopers (My fav), Clone troopers at some stage of their armor or First Order Troopers? Who is the "Big bad Guy(s)", what state are the Good Guys? So many questions
Skyrim would be a good example for Open World, Story Driven. Just not one Province but half of a Galaxy.
