Earlier today, EA released their first trailer for the upcoming starfighter combat title, Star Wars: Squadrons. The game is set to have a 5v5 squadron mode online, with a ” thrilling Star Wars™ single-player story.” The game states on its trailer’s description:
“In a fateful campaign set near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War, learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS™ single-player story. The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. We need you to join the galaxy’s finest. STAR WARS™: Squadrons is available 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.”
The force is indeed strong with this trailer, but here’s to hoping that EA learns from its previous mistakes with Star Wars: Battlefront 2, the title that they’ve just finished development on and announced that no more content would be coming back in April. Though the game had its issues, the team behind the massive title really listened to the community feedback, after all they did win the most downvoted comment in Reddit history. So as stated, I do hope that they’ll listen this time around and avoid the huge scandal, because if there’s one thing Star Wars fans are, is that they’re vocal.
