“The war’s not over. Not for me.”
EA have released a stunning 7-minute long CG short for their upcoming game, Star Wars: Squadrons. The trailer was created in a partnership between Lucasfilm, ILM, Motive Montreal & EA.
The trailer features Varko Grey, the leader of Titan Squadron, after a failed mission taking place after the events of Return of the Jedi.
The official game description states: “Master the art of starfighter combat in the authentic piloting experience Star Wars: Squadrons. Buckle up and feel the rush of first-person multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron. Pilots who enlist will step into the cockpits of legendary starfighters, from both the New Republic and Imperial fleets, and fight in strategic 5v5 space battles. Modify your starfighter and adjust the composition of your squadron to suit varying playstyles and crush the opposition. Pilots will triumph as a team and complete tactical objectives across known and never-before-seen battlefields, including the gas giant of Yavin Prime and the shattered moon of Galitan.”
This will be the first Star Wars game release since Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order late last year. Star Wars: Squadrons is set for an October 2nd 2020 release, and is available for pre-order right now. It will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One at launch.
