Ewoks Coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2

EA just announced a new game mode coming to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 that will let players relive the battle on the forest moon of Endor. Just like in Return of the Jedi, players will get to choose from Ewoks and Imperial stormtroopers for this specific match up. The new mode is called Ewok Hunt and will be available to play in Battlefront 2 on April 18. It has been a rough beginning for the latest game in the Star Wars Battlefront series but this might just be the thing to bring fans back to the game. The release of Star Wars Battlefront 2 was met with a lot of criticism from players when EA included a terrible loot crate system along with some very “in your face” micro transactions. However, the loot box system has since been removed from the game and micro transactions toned down, leading players to slowly make their way back to Battlefront 2.

Mark Hamill gets choked up filming with Yoda in TLJ

This is a very cool behind the scenes look at Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) filming a scene with Frank Oz (Yoda) on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s like watching two old friends be reunited for the first time in decades. Essentially that is what is happening because even though Mark and Frank have reunited, this is the first time we see Luke and Yoda reunite since The Return of The Jedi was released back in 1983. For fans who saw The Last Jedi this was definitely an emotional moment and it’s really cool to see that it was for the actors as well. Check out the video below and be sure to let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation!

Star Wars The Last Jedi Official Trailer

Here we go Star Wars fans! We’ve been waiting anxiously to get another look at the latest Star Wars movie titled The Last Jedi. Just like Star Wars The Force Awakens, this trailer premiered during Monday night football. It was all the way back in April that we got our first look at The Last Jedi in the form of a teaser trailer. If you missed it or want to watch it again, then just click here to check it out. This time we get a much more sinister and mysterious looking trailer than the Force Awakens. I don’t want to say that the Dark Side has a big upper hand in this one, but it is definitely looking that way. Still, what else makes for a great story other than some serious conflict?

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Epic Space Battle Trailer

Star Wars fans have been anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Star Wars: Battlefront series. One of the most anticipated features of the new game is of course the epic space battles that we missed out on in the first of the new Battlefront games. Unfortunately this was a pretty big mistake on the part of EA and Dice. Thankfully they have learned from their mistakes and have made sure to put space combat front and center in Battlefront 2. This latest trailer shows off exactly that and it looks amazing. The sense of scale and speed is spot on to what a Star Wars space battle should be like. Personally I can’t wait to try this refined space combat system in Battlefront 2. 

Cancelled Star Wars Game Is Now Playable

The Star Wars franchise has given us many memorable games in the past, some that will live on in the hearts of fans for years to come. However, it is also synonymous with having games cancelled before they are ever released to the public. Fans are left with their dreams crushed and only their thoughts about what could have been. One game that was announced and cancelled to the dismay of fans was titled Star Wars: First Assault. It was slated to be a Call of Duty style, first person shooter game that never made it to store shelves. Well thanks to the magic of technology and some savvy  geeks it has now been leaked online and you can actually play the unfinished game.

The History of Cancelled Star Wars Games

This is definitely an interesting and entertaining watch. I personally had no idea that their was this many Star Wars games in development that never saw the light of day. Some of these games look awesome and I wish we could have had a chance to play them. However, others on this list look like it was probably a good decision to cancel them. Still if you’re a gamer and a Star Wars fan you will definitely have a sense of disappointment after watching this video, and knowing that all these games never happened.

Hand Made Star Wars TaunTaun Costume (Video)

The force is definitely strong with this awesome Halloween costume. Any Star Wars fan will recognize this iconic costume for the Empire Strikes Back. We all remember the famous scene where Han Solo had to save an almost frozen Luke Skywalker by cutting open his tautaun, and stuffing him inside of it. Lets hope this little guy never has to know the horrors of having to take shelter inside his beloved tauntaun to survive the cold. Honestly though, this costume is seriously bad ass!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer #2 (Video)

We finally have some new and spectacular footage for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This latest Rogue One trailer is pretty amazing and definitely has us here at Nerdgasm Needs even more excited for December. In this new trailer we get a lot more footage and a bit of background on Jyn Erso the latest heroin to join the rebellion. With a better understanding of where she came from it makes a lot more sense how she gets involved with the rebellion and the plot to destroy the Death Star.
