A new Star Wars game is on the way!
Electronic Arts has announced that an upcoming video game set in the Star Wars universe is coming this year. And this action video game is titled Star Wars: Squadrons.
Star Wars: Squadrons is set after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star. In addition, the story alternates between two customizable pilots who are flying for New Republic’s Vanguard Squadron and the Empire’s Titan Squadrons.
More so, the multiplayer supports up to 10 players (5v5), having two groups of pilots against each other. As the players progress and earn more experience, they can attain new shields, weapons, and upgrades.
And another good thing, according to creative director Ian S. Frazier the game supports full HOTAS setups. You can check the tweet here!
HOTAS, for those not familiar with the Way of the Simulator, is an acronym that stands for “hands on throttle and stick,” a design concept that enables pilots to access the major functions of their aircraft without having to take their hands off the primary controls. In gaming terms, it means you can map controls from your keyboard to your stick, so that instead of flying in a straight, flat line like a big fat turkey while you look for the ^ key, you can do what you need to without having to break your maneuver or take your eyes off the screen. –PC Gamer
