EA has debuted a new gameplay trailer for Motive’s upcoming Star Wars: Squadron during the Gamescom opening night live stream, giving another look at the single-player campaign for the starfighter pilot simulator.
The new trailer shows off how players will jump into the role of two conflicting pilots — one from the Empire and one from the New Republic — in alternating missions. There are also cameos from film characters, like Wedge Antilles.
Most of the trailer focuses on an Imperial mission that sees players flying behind enemy lines to infiltrate a New Republic base, escort a shuttle, and help escape with the intelligence. While Squadrons will largely focus on five-versus-five dogfights and larger multiplayer fleet battles, the single-player mode will give players a chance for different varieties of missions on a more diverse scale.
Star Wars: Squadrons will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 2nd.
