Star Wars: Squadrons

Today during Gamescom Opening Night Live, we got ourselves a fresh look at Star Wars: Squadrons. Specifically, we got a fresh look at the game's single-player component, something you may not have even realized existed for the game.

This includes the confirmation of several familiar faces along with a slew of new faces to the Star Wars universe. Some of those familiar faces are from the original trilogy along with the animated series.

The trailer is narrated by narrative producer at Motive Studios Susan Hunka.

Star Wars: Squadrons is looking at an October 2, 2020 release date for a price of just $39.99 (USD) at launch. It will be out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, Origin, and the Epic Games Store. It will have support for PlayStation VR and PC VR devices.

The Republic’s classified Project Starhawk represents a tipping point in the Galactic Civil War, and ace pilots on each side will be instrumental in its outcome. Get a first look at an early Imperial mission in the single-player story of STAR WARS™: Squadrons, where you must fly behind enemy lines to extract an allied spy with vital intelligence on the project.

STAR WARS™: Squadrons is available October 2, 2020 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC on, Steam, and Epic Games Store, and playable in Virtual Reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-play support.
