Star Wars: Squadrons: A few days after Star Wars officially announced it: Squadrons, EA released the first trailer and shared a little bit more about what to expect from their next Star Wars title. As expected, the title established by the EA Motive is based around dogfighting in the first person.

It is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC (Origin, Steam and Epic Game Store). It will support play on PC and PS4 on virtual reality, with full crossplay between all three platforms. EA’s dove into complete cross-platform gaming with Need for Speed Heat for the first time last week.

Squadrons takes place after the Jedi’s return, and there will be both a single player and multiplayer campaign. Instead of delving too much into the features, the trailer is more about setting the tone and giving you an idea of what is in store, but it certainly looks good.

What we know so far is that there are five online modes vs. five dogfights and fleet battles, in which you will work with your teammates to take down the enemy flagship. You will be preparing for missions in a briefing room with the rest of your squadron before you hop into your starfighter and go into battle. Squadrons will feature familiar and brand new locations, including Yavin Prime and Galitan’s Moon. EA suggests the structure of the team would be also significant.

Following the Battle of Endor and the destruction of Death Star II, the single-player campaign takes place. You can switch between two pilots’ perspectives: one from the valiant Vanguard Squadron of the New Republic and the other from the Titan Squadron of the Empire. All pilots are fully customizable and a variety of original characters will appear in the advertisement. You may also be spotting cameos from familiar faces.

One choice that you will have at your disposal in combat is to divert power between the different systems in your ship. You will be able to pilot a bunch of various Imperial and Rebel starfighters (including X-wings and TIE fighters) that you can modify.

Even though there are cosmetics and gameplay modificators — such as weapons, hulls, engines, and shields — EA said you are going to be able to earn all of those by gameplay alone. The publisher was facing a firestorm for how it originally handled loot boxes in Battlefront II, with many condemning it for a program that effectively would have paidwalled some upgrades.

It will release squadrons on October 2nd and cost $39.99. If you are an EA Access or Origin Access Basic member, at the launch you will be able to play 10 hours of Squadrons and save 10 per cent off the retail price if you buy it. Origin Access Premier subscribers will have full access to the on-pc game. Meanwhile, if they pre-order, PS4 players can claim certain bonus cosmetics.

You should expect to find out much more about Star Wars: Squadrons before the release date. EA will keep the ball rolling at EA Play this Thursday, with a gameplay preview.
