[Update]: Star Wars: Squadrons has now landed onto PC and consoles alongside a rather positive reception.

It may have taken what feels like forever, but we're finally getting a brand new Star Wars space combat game! The titular Star Wars: Squadrons will feature intense 5 vs 5 dogfights across a variety of iconic and newfound battlefields, tons of customization and cosmetic options to mess around with, as well as a singleplayer story from both the perspective of the Empire and the New Republic.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted announcement trailer. It'll clue you in quite nicely on just what Star Wars: Squadrons looks like, and more importantly, what it plays like! Have a gander:

Star Wars: Squadrons will be launching on October 2, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as both PSVR and PC VR. Most importantly of all, Star Wars: Squadrons will have cross-play support, so regardless of what platform you choose, you'll be able to bravely use your friends as meatshields!
