What first started out as a rumour has been revealed to be totally true as EA brings fans their next Star Wars-themed game – Star Wars: Squadrons.
It looks like we are about to get our buzzboy helmets on and take to deep space as the reveal trailer for the coming Star Wars: Squadrons takes to the interweb to showcase the laser-show mayhem all from the snuggly viewpoint in an X-Wing and/or TIE Fighter cockpit.
Dogfights are usually reserved for those awkward one-off missions where your bearing is all the way messed up and you just want to reach the checkpoint so you can get on with more grounded gameplay. But while the trailer does seem awesome, let’s hope the mechanics follow suit.
EA Games’ Star Wars: Squadron description reads as follows:
Buckle up, take full control of starfighters such as the X-wing and TIE fighter, and feel the adrenaline of strategic first-person 5v5 multiplayer dogfights alongside your squadron. In a fateful campaign set near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War, learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS™ single-player story. The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. We need you to join the galaxy’s finest. STAR WARS™: Squadrons is available October 2, 2020 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Origin PC, Steam, Epic Games Store, and Virtual Reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-play support.
