    I believe there will be AI ships as well. Cannon fodder really lol.

    no doubt they’ve tried it with bigger team sizes. I think the issue is likely that once a team has a numerical advantage of two or three then it likely becomes very difficult for the ‘losing’ team to come back and once it becomes 4 or 5 v 1 it quickly depends into ganking and one very unhappy team. 5v5 probably stops that, or at least mitigates it.

    I have the original 4 on steam, tie fighter, x-wing, x-wing Vs tie fighter, and Xwing Alliance. Great games.

    I'd agree remake of that, don't even change much just with modern day graphics maybe up to date multiplayer support. Job done.

    VR you say, gets me interested :D

    Elite Dangerous type flight control but in Star Wars setting would be awesome...

    I highly doubt it will control like ED, afaik it's model is unique (and aside from the (soon to be dropped) VR support the jewel in the crown of the game imo

    This sounds like it could be really good, I’m just not sure I want to spend several hundred on VR kit for a single game.

    I keep seeing this misunderstanding for some reason.
    VR is supported, not required.

    It will run, minimum requirements are just what the developers will deem an acceptable playing experience.

    Any chance you can expand on that? I'm guessing if you have it on origin you miss out on the steam friends quick links and achievements...but that's it?

    Dare I say it, after watching the trailer id say that it's as close to a throw back to the X-Wing series as we'll ever get.

    The in cockpit in game looks simplistic enough to hold a candle to 90's originals.

    I’m sold.

    Hopefully we get plenty of missions in the campaign.
