Star Wars: Squadrons trailer, release date, gameplay and more

Star Wars: Squadrons trailer, release date, gameplay and more”

Built for five-vs-five combat, Star Wars: Squadrons seems like it's built to be a competitive game.

Ian Frazier, Creative Director, Motive Studios said, "We created this game for every Star Wars fan who has ever dreamt about soaring across the galaxy in their favorite starfighter".

The game itself takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, chronicling the tumultuous period after the fall of the Empire after the Civil War.

Today's trailer provided no gameplay, though EA has promised to premiere gameplay footage during its EA Play Live 2020 event on June 18. Immerse yourself in the pilot's seat completely with the option to play the entirety of Star Wars: Squadrons in Virtual Reality on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Pilots are wanted for Star Wars' newest title. You'll have the choice of siding with the New Republic or the Empire, but you'll each fly in squads of 5 as you attempt to defeat your rivals. Online multiplayer will be 5v5 and support crossplay.

Between dodging lasers and missiles you can improve your ships, and while you'll be able to unlock cosmetic and gameplay modifications, EA says they'll be earned purely through gameplay by moving up the ranks. The leaks didn't stop there though, as Microsoft also revealed information and artwork featuring classic Star Wars ships on its digital store.

Well alright then! I'm curious to see how the game operates, as the closest taste we've had to a modern-day revival of Rogue Squadron has been the Battlefront II mode of Starfighter Assault. It can also unite a Star Wars fanbase divided by recent sequel films added to the Star Wars series. That means we will likely see the exciting game trailer, and maybe even get a new one. Cross-play will be supported across all platforms.

It is believed that EA are planning to release Star Wars Squadrons this autumn on consoles and PCs.
