  • New Republic = Bad guys

  • Will there be planetary atmosphere levels in the game, then?

  • Am I supposed to be rooting for an empire dog? Disgusting

  • I’ve always been a rebel at heart, yet here am I rooting for the Imp...

  • Better than the movies hahaha. Seriously, this looks great! Please be good

  • I've been telling people for years - the Rebels were the bad guys all along, and here's the proof!

    • wrong the bigger picture is were rebels less aggressive

  • Now, THIS is podracing!

  • 'Hope ea doesn't fuck it up' Jake Baldino 2020

  • Now you have to get loot ...i mean suprise boxes to get parts to rebuild your tie....only £5 per box.....only 300 boxes needed.

  • I love 4:10 to 4:14 shot. I love it some much because it's possible that there is a camera or visual sensor installed on the wing of the Tie Interceptor. It grounds the scene and makes it appear more gritty and realistic. It's sorta similar to how Halo Reach used cameras from its world to ground its characters and story. Bravo!

  • They're legit to show gameplay. I'm here to see what the game is like, not a cinematic short film.

  • GD, that's what I'm talking about! *SMASHES LIKE BTTN*

  • The amount of g's he pulled during that re-entry dodge

  • Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

  • I refuse to believe a computer did thid

  • Please ea don't ruin this

  • Who else was here for the live version

  • What, no 4K 60fps? Something this good needs 4K 60fps!

  • Is this game or short placed after Rouge One ? 0:13

  • Of course Ea thinks the sith are the good guys :D j.k. looking forward to an amazing game :)

  • Ngl when the captain was told by the general to disengage and he did, for a moment I went. “Wait, what?”

  • this should be a movie get dave Filoni to do it showing how imperials weren't a bunch of evil basturds but fighting for their freedom in creed people in kind knowing it might be wrong the bigger picture is were rebels less aggressive


  • Well you certainly know how to sell me a starwars game. Even still I'll wait to hear the consensus before I leap into another EA crapcircus.

  • Yeah, this won't mean a damn thing if they pull some stupid BS like in Battlefront and make the campaign a back-loaded Rebel propaganda piece. "Operation Cinder" what total joke conceived by some glad-handed Jedi-loving flower child.

  • Please make more of these! weekly episodes would be great

  • When a 6 minute short is more entertaining than 3 whole movies

  • Asian Orlando Bloom works for the Empire?!

  • Good gooooood *smiles in emperor

  • This scene is better than all three Disney sequel movies. How can they put together something like this and not be able to make a good movie?🤔

  • 2:16 Here we see the GR-75 , the heroship of the rebellion, why these are always found in fleet fights is a bit of a mystery, as they are literally cargo vessels, but the rebels have never been known to lose a fight when they are present. ;)

  • Hey, ngl if Disney ever made a star wars film animated like this I'd watch it

  • Its funny when they look over their shoulder in a tie fighter like they're gonna see something other than a wall

  • We will watch your career with great interest

  • Interceptor pilot must have been name 新手大师六十九

  • Everything about Star Wars is great except Disney movies

  • Better story, acting, graphics, tension, and much more from that one short than the whole of the last trilogy.

  • Better than Rise of Skywalker

  • cool

  • 😎

  • So the IMP is Japanese no wonder he won hehe :()

  • Shoulda bypassed the compressor...

  • Long live the Empire

  • I don't get it. Please explain someone to me, how can this little cdi trailer be that good (or even awesome) but all the last Star Wars movies were soooo terrible!?

  • So let me guess. He's a Imperial for like 5 minutes then defects to the rebellion just like Battfront 2?

  • They're all the same.

  • Nice pre rendered action, but it’s all about gameplay and immersion w/o pay to win loot boxes.... right???

    • i want to see more films where the empire is in the foreground. Often people forget that it is not the empire itself that is the bad guys but that the executives are the real bad gu

  • More tension and better acting in this short CGI than in the last 3 films put together.

    • Jo this is fucking epic

  • This video is on par with the SWTOR trailers.

  • GF in local boys

  • I love the derogatory way he says "Imp", made it sound almost as bad as a racial slur and instantly makes you think "fuck that guy" about the X-Wing pilot

  • Это лучше 3х последних фильмов!

  • can you aCTUALLY fly to planets in this

  • Когда в играх будет такая графика?

  • The war's over... SIMP ok im done

  • More of this. This attention to lore, love of the IP. THIS is what we want, EA. I will buy this game - have my money.

  • I like lightsaber slash blaster games so not my type of game (also I probably don't like ships cus I'm trash at riding them in battlefront) but I'm reeaaally happy for who likes it

  • This is what the Empire should be , rich , advanced , powerful , skilled and deadly , also Stormtroopers should be exactly what they are , true elite clone soldiers and not some retarded bots serving for target purposes.

  • So glad to see an Imperial perspective again!

  • Fuck Space Nazis

  • This makes me see why no one joined the resistance in time.for them,they are "heroes".for the others,they are monsters.i saw that bomber and it's pilot got brutally destroyed by a X-wing.

  • Jo this is fucking epic

  • i want to see more films where the empire is in the foreground. Often people forget that it is not the empire itself that is the bad guys but that the executives are the real bad guys

  • Best part of being a pilot in star wars: G forces shouldnt apply to you when in space

  • Now I’m hyped for a game I don’t even want. Amazing trailer!

  • "The wars is over, imp *postor* " -Gray- The chat:Gray kinda sus to chase it, vote him

  • I want moooooooooooore

  • That was more entertaining than new movies

  • Nothing is more iconic than the screech of a TIE FIGHTER!

  • In the words of a Grand Moff- *”Oh, it’s beautiful”*

  • Imperials in OT and First Order in sequels: Bunch of faceless disposable laugh-at goons with a nuisance toy craft they happy to know how to fly and shoot with. Very few exceptions. "New" Imperials & Grey: *An actual professional Human PILOT with a professional Fighter Spacecraft that can pack a good punch and doesn't explode from a sneeze!*

  • Badass

  • esto si es star wars , no esas mierdas de peliculas que hicieron ahora en los ultimos años

  • EA makes it so much easier to leave Star Wars behind

  • We need an animated series about this!

  • Must See people react to Mandalorian Season 2 and confused Mando with Vader think it is going to be a movie and on Netflix

  • Rule #1: "Don't get cocky!"

  • Remember your training, pilot... Never give up.

  • Tell me, well, tell me how is it possible that some 7 min trailer was 100% better than this new sequel shit.

  • Perfection.

  • This looks fun! I might play a little, now and then, when I'm not enjoying SWTOR (Old Republic).


  • This short made u feel for the empire pilot ...FOR THE EMPIRE, U KNOW THE BAD GUYS

  • Always been a fan of TIE Fighter

  • *The Empire did nuthin wrong!*

  • The wars over, Imp! "Yah.. for you!"

  • 很棒,但预购是不可能的

  • but I digress. Hopefully EA Dice actually deliver a story that humanizes the Imperial troops and this isn't just bait

  • you guys made this and disney made rise of the skywalker........

  • am I anti-imperial? yes, but.....

  • Not wanting to pick holes in a work of art be surely when the tie lost power and nose dived into the lake. With no power to systems like... oh I don't know the inertial dampeners. Surely the pilot should have been turned to a sack of broken bones and goo.

  • The Empire vs Rebel thing used to mean so much more. Those willing to sacrifice freedom for order and prosperity, battling those cherish liberty over their lives. The Balance of the force over the Jedi or Sith... ... I remember first reading the Thrawn trilogy, mind blowing to see how deep the Space Operas can go... Good to see some of the legacy is not dead. I AM BUYING THE GAME THIS MINUTE.

  • Disney killed Star Wars for the most part. Praying Dune will take it's place.

  • Nice Nice!

  • 3:14 you fucked it up

  • More of that please!

  • And literally all of this could of been avoided by saying "Give me one more second"

  • That is soooooo much better that the new movies!

  • This short is the story people wanted from BF 2
