Today during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live show, Electronic Arts presented a new trailer of Star Wars: Squadrons.
We get to take a first look at the single-player campaign of the game, which certainly looks awesome.
In the mission showcased today, we get to experience the story from the Imperial side. The game will let you play both as a rebel and as an Imperial pilot.
You can enjoy the trailer revealed during the show below.
Below you can read an official description of Star Wars: Squadrons.
All Wings Report In – Plan skirmishes with your squadron in the briefing room before taking off to the evolving battlefields across the galaxy. Compete in intense 5v5 multiplayer dogfights or unite with your squadron to tip the scales in monumental fleet battles. Together, you’re the galaxy’s finest.
Master Legendary Starfighters – Take control of different classes of starfighters from both the New Republic and Imperial fleets – including the agile A-wing and the devastating TIE bomber. Modify your ship, divert the power between its systems, and destroy your opponents in strategic space dogfights.
Get in the Cockpit – The cockpit is your home. Use its dashboards to your advantage and – with just a thin hull of metal and glass between you and the perils of space – feel the intensity of combat from a first-person perspective. Take off in thrilling multiplayer modes and a unique single-player Star Wars story, which covers a key campaign near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War. Immerse yourself in the pilot’s seat completely with the option to play the entirety of Star Wars: Squadrons in Virtual Reality on PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Mission Is Clear – Star Wars: Squadrons is a fully self-contained experience from day one, where you earn rewards through play. Climb the ranks and unlock new components like weapons, hulls, engines, shields, and cosmetic items in a clear path for progression that keeps gameplay fresh and engaging.
Star Wars: Squadrons releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 2. The PS4 and PC versions will also support virtual reality.
