EA Announces Starship Dogfighter Star Wars: Squadrons, Coming to Xbox One October 2

Hop in and take the controls of X-Wings and TIE-Fighters this Fall with Star Wars: Squadrons, a new starship dogfighting game taking place in the Star Wars universe shortly after the events of “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.”

Experience life as both a New Republic and Imperial pilot as you master the art of starfighter combat through first-person multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron mates. Plan and execute skirmishes with your friends before taking off into the Star Wars galaxy through intense 5v5 multiplayer combat or through epic fleet battles. Then hop in the cockpit across a variety of starships, from the agile A-wing to the devastating TIE bomber, where you’ll not only have to manage intense dogfighting techniques but on-board systems as you eliminate your opponents through strategic dogfights in the depth of space.
