The game is a first-person space combat experience set in the Star Wars galaxy. The game features 5-on-5 multiplayer battles, massive naval battles, and a whole new story about the last days of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
EA writes about Star Wars Squadrons (buy now for € 39.99):
Fight in intense 5v5 dogfights, team up with your squadron to turn the battle in monumental naval battles to your advantage, and plunge into a gripping Star Wars ™ single-player story.
Find out what it takes to pilot a battleship in an exciting Star Wars ™ single player story. In the story, which is alternately told from the perspective of the New Republic and the Empire, you will meet iconic and rising leaders from both sides who are fighting for the future of the galaxy. The action takes place near the end of the Galactic Civil War, i.e. at a time when the skill of the aviation race makes the difference.
Challenge the best of the galaxy in exciting 5-on-5 dogfights. The mission is simple, but it takes a lot of skill to be successful. Customize your equipment for even more speed and accuracy, assemble your squadron from different Starfighter classes and destroy the enemy ships to win.
Team up with your squadron online or play against bots to turn the battle in monumental naval battles – a competition in which two squadrons of five must accomplish different goals in multiple locations – in your favor. Shift the front by choosing the intense dogfights and bombing enemy battleships that want to keep you from accomplishing your ultimate goal: the destruction of the mighty enemy flagship.
