Star Wars: Squadrons Revealed, Cross-Play And VR Confirmed (VIDEO)
With the success of Jedi: Fallen Order and the steady redemption of Star Wars: Battlefront II, fans are surely looking forward to what EA has in store for the franchise next. Despite sporadic rumors of a third Battlefront, it appears the publisher’s next project is actually that of Star Wars: Squadrons, a space-themed pilot title that was recently the subject of leaks. While much about the game had been left up to speculation, EA has now officially revealed the game with an epic announcement trailer.
As seen in the epic footage below, Star Wars: Squadrons is centered around players piloting their very own starship and going into battles on the side of either the Rebels or the Empire. As per an EA press release, the titles mainly focuses on 5v5 multiplayer dogfights, with support for cross-play and VR available from launch. Developed by EA Motive (the studio behind Battlefront II’s campaign), Squadrons also features an “authentic” full story campaign following “the final days of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic.”
While this new showcase certainly gives fans plenty to hype over, even more is scheduled to arrive during the upcoming EA Play event. Not only will the event see the first Star Wars: Squadrons gameplay debut, but other EA games such as the next Need For Speed (which recently became the first EA franchise with cross-play), and possible news on the future of BioWare’s Mass Effect and Dragon Age series are expected to see similar showcases. Fans will just have to wait and see until later this week to find out.
Star Wars: Squadrons is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 2nd.
