A year to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, EA is ready to release another PC console Star Wars game. However, this is totally different from the take on the series by Respawn. Star Wars: Squadrons is developed by Motive Studios and set to release on October 2, 2020, on PS4 for PC via Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store, and Xbox. Matter of fact, even the VR fans can join in on the fun, as the space shooter is going to be available in VR on PC and PS4. Following a reveal trailer today, Star Wars: Squadrons is available for pre-order on all platforms, which means you can secure an early copy and be able to play from day one.
In Star Wars: Squadrons, you play the role of a starfighter pilot who will command iconic ships from the Imperial Fleets and The New Republic as well. The game will feature 5v5 multiplayer dogfights and monumental fleet battles with an original single-player story revolving around events that occur after the destruction of the Death Star II and Battle of Endor. The story follows the perspective of two pilots — one pilot is from the New Vanguard Squadron and the other is from the Empire’s Titan Squadron.
Star Wars: Squadrons will feature cross-play support for PC, VR, Xbox, and PS4 so you and your friends can team up no matter how’s playing on which platform. The game comes packed with extensive cosmetic and gameplay customizations. You can choose from plenty of designs for your pilot, ship exterior, and cockpit to your preference. You also earn weapons, shields, and engines for your deck as you move up in rank.
