EA has finally released the visuals for Star Wars Squadrons! Like they notified earlier this week, the new game is a first-person space shooter focused around five on five battles and players can group into their own squadrons.
The game looks inspired by old versions like the 90s X Wing and TIE Fighter games, complete with diverting power between ship systems, managing shields, and first-person view.
There are plans for eight pilot-able ships, with a fighter, interceptor, support, and bomber class ship for each faction (specifically, the X-Wing, A-Wing, Y-Wing, U-Wing, TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber, and TIE Reaper fighters.)
A single-player campaign that is set “a little bit after” Return of the Jedi consists of two pilots: a New Republic one and an Imperial one and they can both control missions.
The game will be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on October 2nd and will be available for $39.99.
