    Ahead of its EA Play event this Thursday, EA revealed its next major Star Wars game, Star Wars: Squadrons. The company describes it as a first-person dogfight game with 5v5 multiplayer, as well as a single-player campaign. While the trailer released today was more of the cinematic kind, EA announced that a first look at the actual gameplay will be showcased during its EA Play event on June 18, 4PM PT.


    Star Wars: Squadrons will be available on October 2, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Origin PC, Steam, Epic Games Store, and Virtual Reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-play support.

    Meh. This is the Star wars game we were given, but it is not the one we were looking for. lol :P

    It looks okay, I'm waiting for Respawn Entertainment to announce a sequel to The Fallen Order; (Here's hoping they do) lol :D

    Apparently the game will be $40 at launch and contain no microtransactions. Can't wait for actual gameplay. Didn't expect VR support, that may end up being one of the biggest selling points for me.

    Ditch multiplayer

    If I want to play multiplayer I can just play Battlefront 1 or COD

    I want a good story. I swear Multiplayer is going to be the end of gaming. They probably have maybe 5 hours of campaign that isn't good enough.

    I will not buy anything from EA. Interesting, EA is an Anti-Nintendo, indeed. FIFA sucks worse on Switch. EA didn't learn anything at all!

    These titles are hardly the pinnacle of multiplayer gaming, lol.

    There's no way to say that with any certainty yet. All we really know so far is that you can play as the New Republic or the Imperials, so if each of their campaigns turn out to be only 5 hours that'd still be a total of 10.

    Doesn't look bad... but hard to judge from a cinematic.
    Interested to know if this will be wholly relegated to the Galactic Empire period, or if there will be New Republic and other periods represented.

    Yes but 10 hours isn't enough idk about you but a good story deserves minimum 30 hours of game play I guess people try to trim it down to beat repetition but for the $40-$60 they ask for these games you want to play your moneys worth.

    It depends I'm honestly not that big of playing multiplayer

    Nice CGI. I doubt we will get graphics as good during gameplay.

    As I discussed with pedro702 in the other Squadrons thread, most AAA FPS games come in right around 15 hours for the campaign on the high end. Your typical 30+ hour game is gonna be more of the RPG variety. At a $40 launch price I really wouldn't be that offended with a 10-hour campaign, but that would probably be a dealbreaker at $60.

    since tie fighter i have not flown for the empire or anyone else.
    xwing vs tiefighter was multiplayer only(at first), and xwing alliance ditched the mouse control.
    lucasarts did their best for me not to want to play their games!

    let's wait until the reviews come in, and then buy it regardless.

    Really? You've never played Rogue Squadron 1-3? You've been missing out, excellent games, particularly in co-op! :)

    The trailer is all in-engine footage. Pretty standard stuff where the Frostbite engine is concerned as long you have a mid-to-high end PC. Obviously it won't look or run quite as good on base model PS4/XB1.

    I'll check out the game play and hopefully it will be good. It should come out on the EA pass in a few months after release.

    no actual gameplay kinda sucks imo, i hate all cinematic trailers, they could show atleast 30 seconds of gameplay imo.

    Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm not sold on a pre-order yet or anything, but I do like what I'm seeing so far.

    Gameplay is coming on Thursday, so we won't have to wait too long.
