EA, Motive and Studios Lucasfilm announced the new game Star Wars: Squadrons on Monday . In the game, players can fly through the universe in starfighters. The game will be available from October 2.

In the offline version, individual players can play a story set during the last days of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic. The story is set after the events of the movie Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

In addition, players can compete against other players in first-person multiplayer battles. Players then form a squad of five, a squadron, and must attempt to destroy the opponent's flagship. The game supports crossplay. Crossplay allows players to compete against each other via different game platforms.

"We made this game for all the Star Wars fans who have ever dreamed of flying through the universe in their favorite starfighter," said Ian Frazier, creative director at Motive Studios.

Star Wars: Squadrons will be released on October 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Steam and Epic Games Store. The PC and PS4 versions can also be played in virtual reality (VR).
