Star Wars: Squadrons – First previews are positive

Can the old hobby pilots of the 90s have legitimate hopes for a successful comeback of gripping space battles in the Star Wars universe? Initial reactions from the press are extremely positive, which is why it would be advisable to get the dusty controller and gaming merchandise out of the basement to be on the safe side.

If you had to name an element from Star Wars that has seldom been implemented in video games in the last 20 years, it would probably be the space battles – at least the deep ones. Of course, Star Wars titles like Battlefront 2 or Knights of the Old Republic also had short sections in controllable spaceships, but they can’t be compared with the classics from the 90s. The X-Wing series in particular enjoyed great popularity, but Rebel Assault and Rogue Squadron should not be missing from this list.

Squadrons could delight old fans again

When the new EA title Star Wars: Squadrons was announced in June 2020, many players frowned at the publisher’s handling of the valuable license. Is this only a loveless, slapped title? Are the battles really as deep as they used to be? And what about real money purchases? It is now known that Squadrons will completely forego microtransactions. And according to the recently published preview articles, we should actually have a good title in the house in terms of gameplay.

Our colleagues at PC Games are positively surprised. Above all, the skill-heavy combat system knows how to inspire. The ship’s energy has to be managed tactically, the space fighters have different configuration options, and the community feeling in the squadron ensures a great atmosphere. The biggest question mark, however, is still behind the story – because only if it knows how to convince the limited gameplay will remain exciting and motivating.

Whether the title is really worth it will be shown by October 2, 2020 at the latest. Then Squadrons will appear for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
