(XBox Wire)— Hop in and take the controls of X-Wings and TIE-Fighters this Fall with Star Wars: Squadrons, a new starship dogfighting game taking place in the Star Wars universe shortly after the events of “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.”
Experience life as both a New Republic and Imperial pilot as you master the art of starfighter combat through first-person multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron mates. Plan and execute skirmishes with your friends before taking off into the Star Wars galaxy through intense 5v5 multiplayer combat or through epic fleet battles. Then hop in the cockpit across a variety of starships, from the agile A-wing to the devastating TIE bomber, where you’ll not only have to manage intense dogfighting techniques but on-board systems as you eliminate your opponents through strategic dogfights in the depth of space.
Developed by Motive Studios (Star Wars: Battlefront II’s single-player campaign), Star Wars: Squadrons will also feature a unique single-player story taking place near the end of the Galactic Civil War as seen in Original Trilogy era of the classic Star Wars films. Star Wars: Squadrons will also feature cross-play support allowing starship pilots to battle across multiple platforms.
