Star Wars: Squadrons feels like the next incarnation of the older X-Wing games. The story takes place after the events of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, with the Rebels having killed The Emperor, blown up the second Death Star, and rebranded as the New Republic. In this clip, you’ll meet some lively characters from both the Imperial and New Republic factions. A lot of the characters in Squadrons reference fan-favorite moments, such as The Battle Of Yavin and The Clone Wars. In this particular section, the New Republic steal a Star Destroyer to build a new kind of capital ship. We then see the Imperial perspective.
Star Wars: Squadrons places players in iconic ships like the New Republic's A-Wing, X-Wing, and Y-Wing as well as the Imperial’s array of TIE fighters and Bombers. Squadrons includes classic simulator gameplay mechanics, like balancing your craft's systems (weapons, shields, and engines), and a ton of customization, including different types of lasers, rockets, and countermeasures.
Star Wars: Squadrons, developed by Motive Studios, releases on October 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
