    Overview

    Star Wars Squadrons is an upcoming space combat game developed by Motive Studios and published by Electronic Arts. Set after the events of Return of the Jedi, the game's singleplayer campaign features two alternating perspectives: that of a pilot in the New Republic's Vanguard Squadron, and another in the Empire's Titan Squadron.

    Star Wars Squadrons' multiplayer will consist of two modes: Dogfight and Fleet Battles. In Dogfight, two teams of five compete with customizable starfighter loadouts and classes. In Fleet Battles, two teams of five--or one team against A.I. bots--compete in multi-stage battles where the objective is to destroy the enemy's flagship and accompanying capital ships.

    Cockpits in Star Wars Squadrons are fully-modeled, with the various instruments and displays providing the player with information in lieu of a traditional HUD.

    Star Wars Squadrons will support virtual reality on PlayStation VR and PC.

    Locations

    Esseles

    A ringed planet under the Empire's control. The New Republic seeks to destroy a listening post that the Empire constructed and hid within the planet's icy rings.

    Galitan

    The Ringali Nebula holds the remnants of a moon called Galitan. Gravitational forces within the nebula have torn the moon apart, leaving molten fragments scattered about around the celestial body's core.

    Nadiri Dockyards

    Outside of the Ringali Nebula lies a New Republic starship manufacturing facility called the Nadiri Dockyards.

    Sissubo

    Located in the Bormea Sector along with the Nadiri Dockyards and part of the Chandrila system, the airspace surrounding Sissubo is a debris field of salvaged Imperial ships.

    Yavin Prime

    The gas giant made famous by the significant Rebel presence on one of its moons, Yavin 4.

    Zavian Abyss

    In the Expansion Region, an area called the Zavian Abyss exists where asteroids supercharged with electricity by a maelstrom pose immediate threats.
