Star Wars: Squadrons – Official Reveal Trailer



The Story

The game takes place after Return of the Jedi and before The Force Awakens, where the Rebellion has defeated Emperor Palpatine and the Galactic Empire is trying everything they can to keep their grip on the galaxy. You play as both the Rebels and Empire throughout the story, and pilot iconic starfighters like the X-Wing, Y-Wing, A-Wing, and U-Wing as the Rebels and TIE Fighters, TIE Interceptors, and TIE Bombers as the evil Empire. Each side has 5 unique pilots, with one of the Rebel pilots being a Trandoshan, the same lizard-like race as the famous bounty hunter, Bossk.

The game is seen in the first person for maximum immersion, with the wonderfully detailed cockpits seen in the Star Wars Battlefront games. An exciting feature of this game though is the ability to play it all in Virtual Reality. The first EA produced Battlefront game had a short but sweet VR demo following Rogue One, and despite the experience being short, seeing the Star Wars universe at a realistic scale is truly something special. Ships and space feel massive, so the ability to play this one in VR is a game-changer for Squadrons. More gameplay is set to be revealed Thursday, June 18th so stay tuned for that! With only five players per team, it is highly likely the battlefield will be populated with bot pilots to make the fight bigger. Look out for this game on October 2nd, 2020

The Rebellion's ships have better defenses, but the Empire's starfighters are quick and deadly.The Rebellion's ships have better defenses, but the Empire's starfighters are quick and deadly.
