Attention gaming community! EA has decided to launch a new Star Wars game called Star Wars: Squadrons. The game will be set in both single and multi-player and will feature a space combat plot where you can fly the series’ amazing starfighters.
The game has been developed by Motive Montreal and the team says that payers will able to play with a series of Star Wars ships, including the X-Wing, A-Wing, Y-Wing, U-Wing, TIE Fighter, TIE Intercept, TIE Bomber and, TIE Reaper fighters.
Right now, we do not know much about the game and EA says that they will reveal further details in the Play Live Event scheduled for the June 18th at 4 PM PT/7 PM ET. However, the company says that Squadrons would feature a number of multiplayer modes including Fleet Battles where you can team up with your friends and defeat the capital ship.
One improvement that we see in the game is that EA has finally introduced cross-platform support so now you can team up with players from Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You will also be able to connect Squadrons with VR headsets on PC and the Playstation 4.
Now let’s talk about
the features available for a single player. A new plotline has been set after
the Battle of Endor and you will be able to gain access to New Republic's
Vanguard Squadron and the Galactic Empire's Titan Squadron as a pilot.
We already knew about the game as some months ago, it was leaked under the title Project Maverick and the banner of the game was also posted on Microsoft’s Xbox website which was taken down immediately.
This is the first time in a decade that we are seeing such an elaborate Star Wars game so obviously, the expectations are quite high.
Star Wars Squadrons will be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 2nd and will be available for $39.99. We have to wait for any further announcement from EA that will reveal whether the game will be featured on PS5 or not.
