Last Friday, the Microsoft store accidentally unveiled a new Star Wars game. It was pretty quickly confirmed by EA that Star Wars: Squadrons was happening and that the reveal trailer would be released today.
Star Wars: Squadrons will feature 5v5 space multiplayer where you take control of starfighters and participate in dogfights. The game is set during the Galactic Civil War. It will release on October 2nd, 2020 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and across the PC stores.
On top of the 5v5 multiplayer, there will be a brand new single-player story. The gameplay premiere will be shown during EA Play this Thursday, June 18th, at 4 PM PT/7 PM ET. You can already pre-order Star Wars: Squadrons for $39.99, or $35.99 if you have EA Access.
