The trailer does look very, very cool and as it says, uses 'game engine' footage. Obviously they're putting a lot into this game though I'm curious as to how much multiplayer focused this will be because I certainly do not want to have to play this game everytime with at least four other people. Also curious to actually seeing some actual in game footage as opposed to just game engine based cinematics before I can criticize and/or praise it more fully.

Cool trailer though. So they got that part right. I wonder if the scarred female TIE Fighter pilot is a nod to the famous TIE Fighter animated fan movie.

I am so hyped for this game. I played the original Rogue Squadron game on the N64 and then the two sequels on the Gamecube. God I feel old.

Ugh Microtransactions The bane of gamers everywhere that just want to play the game without having to deal with a paywall.

Star Wars: Fallen Order didn't have microtransactions, just as promised.

I wouldn't be surprised if Disney told them to knock it off with the microtransactions on their IP. Battlefront II had European and American lawmakers talking about new regulation, and EA's official response thread on Reddit made internet history as the most downvoted thread of all time... by about 50x the former record IIRC.

That's not the kind of attention Disney wants, bad enough that the Sequel Trilogy is as controversial as it is and that the movies went from making 2 billion -> 1.3 billion -> 1 billion. (which must've been horrifying for the execs).
