Today, EA showed off a ton of brand new games via the EA Play, but the biggest one and the only one we care about is Star Wars Squadrons.
During the stream it was revealed that Squadrons takes place shortly after Return of the Jedi and the single player mode will feature customizeable main characters and a dual storylines featuring pilots from the New Republic and Imperial Remnant.
There are 8 types of ships in the game fighters, interceptors, support, and bombers for each faction. Each ship will feature fully customizeable loadouts with components unlocked via playing the game, not microtransactions.
The first of 2 multiplayer modes is Dogfight mode. A straight up 5v5 battle against another team that comes out with 1 team as the winner.
The second multiplayer mode is Fleet Battles, a 5v5 multi stage battle that can be played against AI. The mode is broken down into 3 stages of combat Dogfight, Capital Ship battle, and assault on the enemy Flagship. You can see the full gameplay reveal below!
