...is it just me or is that AT-AT about half the size it should be?

That's probably the sporty coup model.

Still, this is the most interested I've been in a Star Wars game in a long time.  I know what my son and I will be doing this fall.

If anything they overscaled them.  They're listed as 22m tall.  I suspect the scale was derived from the scene where Luke runs under one and grapples up to the belly.  There's a big discrepancy when you compare the Snow Speeders to the AT-AT, as at the scale they appear, pilots wouldn't fit in them.  They should be about 1/3 to 1/4 the length of an AT-AT.

Dramatic license.

I have read that TIE Fighters and X-Wings apparently control and handle the same.  Hopefully that will not be the case upon release.

Here is the thing about Battlefront, they have never be good, they have always been awesome. The first 2 were clunky games, with bad damage boxes, worse pyshics...but no one cares cause it's Star Wars. I feel like that will keep up with the new one. So don't except the game to be CS good, just enjoy the Star Wars bits.

Also, if anyone wants to play with me on PS4 let me know!

I'm looking forward to it as a co-op game with my son.  For all our co-op gaming, we have yet to actually have a Star Wars game to play.  Which seems odd given the number of games I own.

Attention: Public FREE Beta starts tomorrow!
Preload now through Origin for PC (I'm assuming for PS4 and XBONE it's also preloadable, not sure).

I used to play the original Starwars Battlefront. it was really good, until I got to Endor and and the enemy could see me through the Foliage but I couldn't, then it became frustratingly cheap.

That's a source material issue through.  When I think AT-AT scale, I think of Luke dangling off the belly.  22m is perfectly inline with that scene.

My KDR already sucks balls.
The game is breathtaking visually, though, and I've only played like 15 minutes.
