Star Wars: Squadrons is a shooting game where you master piloting spaceships. Squadrons offers a single player, narrative-based game, in which you play as two pilots (one in the Galactic Empire and one in the New Republic) where you'll fight in battles for either side. The game takes you through the mechanics of each type of ship and teaches you how to fly your own fighter whilst also interacting with other characters and improving your ship with 50 specialised components.

Squadrons also offers you the chance to fight alongside your friends, in a group of five on multiplayer mode. Here, you are again able to chose your side and what type of ship you want to use, taking into account the strategic benefits of each within your group.

Additionally, Star Wars: Squadrons gives you the opportunity to play using a Play Station VR headset, further immersing yourself into the Star Wars universe and enhancing the realistic flight simulator.
