The Star Wars: Squadrons gameplay trailer dropped during EA Play today, and the video wowed fans with its deeper look at the title’s mechanics and design. Star Wars: Squadrons was one of the most talked about reveals of June when it was first announced, promising a unique take on Star Wars combat that appeared to seamlessly blend characteristics from other popular multiplayer titles with the standard Star Wars flair.
Star Wars: Squadrons will put players in the cockpit of some of the franchise’s most iconic fighter ships and task them with doing battle across the galaxy.
The title was revealed as a major element of the EA Play presentation earlier this week, when the EA Star Wars Twitter account announced that it would be getting a gameplay trailer.
Star Wars: Squadrons had been previously leaked under the title Project Maverick in March, and fans already knew heading into the gameplay exhibition that they would be getting a game with a strong multiplayer campaign focus while also receiving a healthy dose of single-player narrative.
During the EA Play presentation, Star Wars: Squadrons unveiled a scintillating look at some of its gameplay, and it impressed much more than perhaps many critics expected.
The title clearly has some deep combat elements present, and appears optimized to deliver on the promise its full VR mode offers with cockpit designs that display relevant readings and more during combat. Star Wars: Squadrons will also assign players roles during combat, ranging from quick ships meant to do damage and support ships that can help allies resupply or get out of trouble.
