Gameplay trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons reveals high-speed space combat

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I'm a sucker for STAR WARS games, and this week's reveal of Star Wars: Squadrons successfully targeted my feelings of nostalgia from countless hours spent playing Star Wars: TIE Fighter when I was young. The new game takes place after the destruction of the second Death Star in RETURN OF THE JEDI and focuses on starfighter pilots from both sides of the conflict. We've already seen a little of the high-speed space combat which Star Wars: Squadrons has to offer, but a new gameplay trailer has dropped which gives us a much better idea of what to expect. Check it out above!

Star Wars: Squadrons will allow you to fight alongside your squadron in huge fleet battles as well as intense 5 vs. 5 dogfights. "Get into the cockpit and triumph as a team by completing tactical objectives across known and never-before-seen battlefields, including the gas giant of Yavin Prime and the shattered moon of Galitan," reads the official description. "Customize the loadouts of starfighters such as the X-wing and TIE fighter and divert power between their weapons, shields, and engines as you roar into the fray. Immerse yourself in strategic multiplayer space battles and a thrilling STAR WARS single-player story, seen from alternating perspectives between the New Republic and the Empire." I'm cautiously excited.

Star Wars: Squadrons will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 2, 2020.
