Become a Starpilot in New Trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons

A lot of hype has been building to the announcement of Project Maverick, and now EA has released a teaser for Motive'sStar Wars: Squadrons.

Here's the official description:

Buckle up, take full control of starfighters such as the X-wing and TIE fighter, and feel the adrenaline of strategic first-person 5v5 multiplayer dogfights alongside your squadrons.

In a fateful campaign set near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War, learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS™ single-player story.The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. We need you to join the galaxy's finest.

Sadly, we don't get a good look at the gameplay, but we do know that the story will focus more on ace starfighters from both sides of the Rebellion and the Empire. There's even a look at fan-favorite pilot Wedge Antilles.

With Star Wars Battlefront II already giving us a Starfighter mode option, it would be interesting to see how Squadrons will be able to make their version stand out. Then again, starfighters are considered to be one of the least populated game modes on Battlefront II. Maybe this time we'll finally be able to get a Starfighter mode that actually has a lot of players.

Fingers crossed we get hero ships like the Millennium Falcon or Vader's TIE Advanced. Is it too much to ask a cameo from Battlefront's Iden Versio?

Star Wars: Squadrons is set to come out on Oct. 2 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
