A battle between spaceships like X-Wings and TIE fighters is a Star Wars icon. The EA Motive doubles the unique aspects of this series, revealing Star Wars: Squadron, a game consisting of shooting down enemy pilots in pursuit and deadly battles. With a below-average launch and several user-friendly features, Star Wars: Squadron seems to be everything ambitious pilots can expect.
The game was developed by EA Motive. It supports full cross games. Both the New Republic and the Imperial Armed Forces currently have four spacecraft.
The story takes place after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star and alternates between two private pilots who fly for the New Republic Vanguard Squadron and Titan Empire Squadrons. Multiplayer supports up to 10 players and places two groups of pilots with each other. As players gain more experience, they can unlock new weapons, shields, upgrades, and various cosmetic items for their pilots and ships.
Pilots and Ships
EA provides comprehensive details about Star Wars: Squadron, detailing eight ships, their capabilities and power systems, and provides an overview of authentic cabin designs. The ships include the classic wing and TIE fighters. They are good at fighting and are quite agile. The ships are long-lived that can withstand blows and can cause severe damage if you move slowly. Interceptors can move and damage quickly, making it suitable for air combat.
The in-game power management system allows players to move the power of their ship from a rifle, motor, or shield to improve the ship in several ways. However, additional efforts are made to present the ship as authentic as possible. Star warriors available to choose from are as follows:
- T-65B X-wing starfighter
- RZ-1 A-wing interceptor
- TIE/LN starfighter – TIE fighter
- TIE/IN Interceptor – TIE interceptor
- TIE/RP Reaper attack lander – TIE reaper
- TIE/SA Bomber – TIE bomber
- UT-60D U-wing Starfighter/support craft
- BTL-A4 Y-wing Assault starfighter/bomber
These ships are divided into four classes: fighters, bombers, interceptors, and auxiliary ships. The fighters are the most balanced in the group; they are agile, robust, and capable, but without specialized expertise. Bombers are tanks with devastating grenades; interceptors are masters in battles against dogs; fast, but sensitive. The support ships are expected to prevent enemy ships and repair allied ships.
Star Wars: Squadron will be released on October 2, 2020, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will also be released for PS5 and Xbox Series X, but no date has been set for the arrival of the next-generation console.
Multiplayer will focus on intimate five vs. five battles to tidy up large-scale dogfighting chaos while avoiding the general dilemma of another zero-G flight. Owners of PS4 versions or high-end computers can turn off their routers and connect VR headphones to experience the whole game in an impressive first-person perspective. Control is fully interchangeable. The experienced version of Windows supports HOTAS and other flying sticks as well.
