He's too late, and before he can make it back to the hangar, the Imperial fleet zips away, leaving him to fend for himself as the New Republic's forces advance into the sector. To pump up the fans, EA has released a brand new CG short, "Hunted", featuring the origin story of one of the pilots whom players will fly alongside (via SuperHeroHype). The upcoming video-game takes place after the destruction of the second Death Star in STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI and focuses on starfighter pilots from both sides of the conflict.

Star Wars: Squadrons is set to release on October 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms and will feature a discounted release price of $40 Dollars.

Waugh also noted how the team took great care "to make sure that we didn't make the Empire something they're not", and explained that Varko "is still a committed idealist and someone who you think is probably a pretty risky individual and has done some awful things" who has found "his entire galaxy has just flipped on its head". The New Republic fights for freedom. Modify your ship, divert the power between its systems, and destroy your opponents in strategic space dogfights. Use its dashboards to your advantage and - with just a thin hull of metal and glass between you and the perils of space - feel the intensity of combat from a first-person perspective. In addition to regular consoles, the game will also be available in virtual reality on PlayStation 4 and PC. "In the short, Varko is still a committed idealist and someone who you think is probably a pretty unsafe individual and has done some bad things". Subscribe #XboxViewTV ➤ -- Connect with us!
