Star Wars Squadron is going to be one of the many featured games for the Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation slated for August 27 at 7 PM BST / 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT.
Announced earlier this year, Star Wars: Squadrons looks to be a spiritual successor to the beloved Star Wars: Rogue Squadron with a heavy emphasis on spaceship-on-spaceship dog fights. EA gave us an in-depth look at some of the game’s mechanics last June and it seems to be a worthy successor from a gameplay standpoint. Little is known about the game’s campaign mode or story aside from a short premise so that might be something to look out for in tomorrow’s presentation.
Star Wars: Squadrons is being developed by Motive Studios, who previously helped in the development of Star Wars: Battlefront II, and is set to launch on October 2 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
