After a fantastic Star Wars: Squadrons showing at EA Play, what we saw can now be viewed again, and again, and again!
Check out the gameplay trailer for Star Wars Squadrons in all its glory below!
The reveal trailer is now with us!
Although it doesn’t show much gameplay, we cannot wait to get aboard those Rebel fighter planes!
Thanks to the trailer, we know the game is arriving on 2 October 2020!
The official press release has told us the game is arriving on Xbox One, PS4, VR, and PC – with Cross-play Support.
Will it be on next-gen?
After the recent PS5 reveal event, anticipation is at a record high surrounding everything and anything next-gen.
We’ve seen some amazing titles, with incredible graphics and gameplay on display, and we’re excited to see how developers use next-gen technology to take games to that next level.
Squadrons is the second EA game in the space of a week to be confirmed for Cross-platform, following Need for Speed Heat.
Will still don’t know much about online play on the game, but you will be able to team up with friends on both PlayStation and Xbox.
Will it be backwards compatible?
The feature makes it possible to play old-gen titles on the next-gen systems, and allegedly increases the performance of the game when doing so.
We don’t know for sure just yet if the title will be playable on next-gen consoles. We’ve certainly got our fingers crossed, however!
Unsurprisingly, Star Wars fans and others were quick to ask about pre-orders!
It would be a fair assumption to make that pre-orders will be available ahead of the release.
We’ll be sure to let you know the quickest and best way to pre-order, the second we find out!
There’s a ton of new gameplay features in the game, from dogfights & fleet battles all the way to different ships and their roles within the fight.
A very exciting element is the potential high level manouvers that can be made by advanced palyers.
Shifting shields, diverting energy to thrusters, and more can be achieved to pull off some show-stopping finishers!
One of the most exciting parts of the Star Wars Universe is the immense and expansive story.
We now know that the title will take place after the events of The Return of the Jedi.
That means – ‘there is no death star’, but there will be a ton of new and exciting maps to do battle on.
We can also expect to see some ‘familiar faces’ in the game, much like in Battlefront II we assume!
