There's a new designer diary at Gamespot: http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/starwarsempireatwarforces/news.html?sid=6153802

What I find most interesting is that in the screenshot that shows a huge Imperial fleet attacking the pirates, the Eclipse is a lot closer to the battle, as if it can be attacked like any other ship. I hope that turns out to be true.

You can also barely make out some TIE Defenders and Phantoms.

Is it just me, or does it seem like all of the new "info" about FOC is very repetitive? They don't seem to be telling us anything new.

There's only so much "new" stuff you can talk about with an expansion. You get new screenies, enjoy it.

DMUKHe he he. :D :p

After looking at the Galactic Map screen again, I was wondering what in blazes this was:

There's obviously Tyber and Bossk, but the first one looks like a bounty hunter version of Cousin It. :giveup:

I would go with Zukuss or whatever his name was.

Definitely not Zukuss. This bounty hunter looks like an eagle or something.

It could be Urai Fen - who is Zanns side kick. Interesting stuff though. IGN have just released a news story on FoC but with no new screens.

I like that they're going to expand the ground battles. That has always been the least entertaining part of the game, in my opinion. Getting more options and more terrain should breathe some more life into ground combat.

It is Urai Fen, and he's a new species. We haven't talked much about him yet :)

Hmmm the mystic "Penguin warrior" of star wars, for those who know the joke. Either that or that is Felco, and he has the special ability to "do the barrel roll" like starfox. :3

Yes now we need a Wolfman copilot for him, and all is good. And no Krystal won't fint in the story.

Oh, will there be "mini movies" in the game?

I mean with the new characters and such, it would be a waste not to see them in a bigger form.

Mini movies would be sweet!
