BOTH SIDES: It looks like you'll fly as the Empire too

That is surprisingly soon for a game that was kept so quiet.


EA Play Countdown

A gameplay reveal will kickstart the show at 4pm ET / 12am BST.

We’ll update this page with any new info from EA Play, but in the meantime, head here to read more about EA Play 2020.

What consoles will it be on?

Squadrons will be launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC - via Steam, EA Origins, and Epic Games Store.

It doesn't look like it will be coming to Nintendo Switch though.


The game will focus around first-person aerial combat, or should that be space combat...

VARIETY: It's the spice of Star Wars combat


Players will pilot fighters against the remnants of the Empire. Set after Return of the Jedi there won't be any worry about Darth Vader popping up, but undoubtedly some familiar names and faces will play a part.

It looks like the game will be a five vs five combat, kind of like Call of Duty but up in the stars.


Per DSO Gaming, Star Wars fans will be able to team up with anyone regardless of hardware! This is the second EA game to be announced with such capability in recent weeks. Need For Speed Heat was the first.

This raises a lot of expectations that the likes of FIFA 21 and Madden 21 have crossplay for the first time.
