Star Wars: Squadrons is a space shooter under Star Wars license. This is another game in this universe from the Electronic Arts catalogue. Motive Montreal studio, owned by the publisher, is responsible for the game.

Plot

The action of the game takes place after the events from the movie Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. The Rebel Alliance won the Battle of Endor, during which the Second Death Star was destroyed. Galactic Empire is in retreat, but has not yet been fully defeated.

Star Wars: Squadrons tells the story from the perspective of two pilots - Rao Highmoon serves the New Republic, while Case Kassandora is a member of the imperial Titan squadron. The campaign allows us to take the lead in guiding these heroes and thus get to know both sides of the conflict.

Gameplay

Star Wars: Squadrons focuses on the clashes of the squadrons, representing the forces of the Galactic Empire and the New Republic. We observe the events from the cockpit of the machines and the game was enriched with elements of simulation.

Each spacecraft shall be equipped with main weapons, defence equipment and two types of special equipment (e.g. rockets or repair droids). Some, though not all, units also have energy shields. Among the machines available are fighters, bombers, support and intercept ships. The control scheme is practically the same for all models, which is to make it easier to change between them.

The key role in the game is played by the power management system (in two variants - simplified and advanced, allowing for full control). We decide for ourselves how to divide the energy between motors, laser guns and shields. Setting one of these categories to maximum also provides access to an additional function. For example, the maximum power supply of the engine allows you to take advantage of short term high acceleration.

The shields regenerate automatically, and in the case of hull damage it is necessary to use support units or return to the flag ship. Repair droids are only able to partially remove damage to our machine.

Multiplayer

Star Wars: Squadrons offers a feature campaign and multiplayer modes. The second are in two variants. Dogfights resemble a team deathmatch and concentrate on the duels of two five-man squadrons. Fleet Battles, on the other hand, are multi-phase skirmishes in which it is necessary to achieve objectives, which mainly include attacks on the flagships of the opposite squadron.

Technical aspects

The game offers support for virtual reality technology on selected platforms (PlayStation 4 and PC), as well as the possibility to play together on different devices thanks to the cross-play function.
