EA’s Motive Studios dropped a new trailer for their highly anticipated game Star Wars: Squadrons. The trailer highlights the game’s single-player campaign and offers up some new details. The trailer came with the following description with the campaign details:
“Though shattered after the Battle of Endor, the Galactic Empire closes in on the Bormea Sector, determined to crush the recently-formed New Republic. 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.”
This is a game that I’ve been very much looking forward to playing. I love the Star Wars games where you get to pilot the ships from the films! Who doesn’t!? This new game looks awesome, and here are some additional details that have been shared:
