Strap in pilots, and prepare for battle! Electronic Arts, Motive Studios and Lucasfilm have released the highly anticipated immersive, first-person, Star Wars space dogfighting experience, Star Wars: Squadrons.
In the authentic new story, players will speed to the frontlines of an escalating conflict experienced from the alternating perspectives of two customizable pilots, one serving the New Republic and the other the Galactic Empire.
Star Wars: Squadrons offers the option to play in thrilling Virtual Reality on PS4 and PC, enabling players to feel every drift, evasion and maneuver as if they were in the cockpit.
The game features thrilling 5v5 multiplayer starfighter combat along with an original Star Wars story set after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
Work with your squadron to execute the best tactics and destroy as many opponents as possible in Dogfight, while in Fleet Battles, players join their squadron in large scale, strategic back-and-forth battles to demolish opposing flagships.
Mastering the skills and controls to become an ace pilot in the Star Wars universe is no easy feat and players looking to test their abilities and fully embrace the pilot fantasy can tune their difficulty in-game and take full control of their ship with hands on throttle-and-stick (HOTAS) support on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Squadrons will also give players the chance to bring their own personality to their starfighters with customization options that are earned solely through gameplay.
Star Wars: Squadrons is now available both digitally and in stores for $39.99 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via the EA Desktop App, Steam and the Epic Games Store, with Virtual Reality (VR) support on PlayStation 4 and PC.
