After the rumors of its release we now have full confirmation from EA that Star Wars: Squadrons is truly coming soon.

The release date has been set for the 2nd of October this year.

This new Star Wars game is actually set in space which is something we haven’t seen EA do in a while.

The story starts after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star, the story alternates between two pilots which you get to personalize, who are flying for New Republic’s Vanguard Squadron and the Empire’s Titan Squadrons respectively. The multiplayer can handle up to ten players and sets two groups of pilots against each other. As you gain experience you also unlock weapons, shields, and various upgrades and aesthetic items for your pilot and his/her ship.

Two new locations have also been added for you. The gas giant of Yavin Prime and the shattered moon of Galitan.

You will also get to control different starfighter classes from the new Republic and Imperial fleets, such as the X-wing and TIE fighter. You will get to modify these ships to your heart’s content and even divert power between its systems. All while destroying enemies in strategic dog-fights.
