EA pulled back the curtain a bit on their upcoming Star Wars: Squadrons game, revealing a release date, platform list, price, details on microtransactions, and more. You can find these details below along with links where the game can be pre-ordered.
As the title of the game suggests, Star Wars: Squadrons is a first-person dogfighting game, and we've learned that it will be set after the events of Return of the Jedi. It will feature both a single player campaign and multiplayer as well as full compatibility with VR headsets for both the PS4 and the PC - which is awesome.
