Star Wars Squadrons trailer wows the internet
Star Wars Squadrons has been officially announced.
The latest tie-in from Disney’s video game studio EA Motive (the people behind Star Wars Battlefront II) features five-on-five space combat featuring X-Wings and Tie Fighters.
The game is set just after Return of the Jedi, just after the second Death Star was destroyed. Players will join squadrons of five, either on the side of the New Republic or the Empire.
EA says it will also support VR headsets, on the PlayStation 4 and on PC. With regards to the impending launch of the PS5, EA says its game will be backwards compatible.
The debut of Star Wars Squadrons comes before EA Play 2020, which will happen tomorrow. The annual convention will showcase some big updates from EA, along with all-new games.
It was previously moved back from May 25, in solidarity of the Black Lives Matter movement.
