As expected given last week’s leak via the Microsoft Xbox store, EA has officially announced the new Star Wars title from their stable, and it’s Star Wars Squadrons! A Star Wars game entirely based on air and space combat! Check out the Star Wars Squadrons trailer reveal below.
According to EA, Star Wars Squadrons will be out this October 2 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and even support VR for PS4 and PC! For those curious, the game will feature both a single-player and multiplayer mode, and the latter will feature crossplay!
Master the art of starfighter combat in the authentic piloting experience STAR WARS™: Squadrons. Buckle up, feel the adrenaline of first-person multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron, and learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS™ single-player campaign.
While unconfirmed by EA, we reported on the existence of Star Wars Squadrons internal playtesting within EA just last month when it was codenamed “Project Maverick.” We’re going to go out on a limb here and guess this is one of EA’s big announcements at this week’s EA Play digital event, but given its existence has been leaked, they went ahead and announced it today.
EA Play is set to take place this June 18 at 4 p.m. PDT/7 p.m. EDT.
Are you excited for Star Wars Squadrons or would you prefer we get a new shooter like Star Wars Battlefront 2?
