Star Wars: Squadrons (The new XvT)
« on: 26 Jul 2020, 15:03 »

Star Wars Squadrons is X-Wing vs Tie Figher!!!


To sum up the gameplay:
-You're in the cockpit of a star fighter the whole time (no 3rd person view)
-You have to manage your engines, weapons, and shield energy (Just like XvT)
-Dogfighting and fleet based combat (kind of like old Battlefront 2)
-You can upgrade you fighters and customize your cockpit (with little doodads and bobble heads if you wish)
-4 classes of star fighter (Fighter, Bomber, Interceptor, and Support)

This looks great especially with online friend play.

There is also a single player campaign. It looks like it takes place during New Republic vs Empire Remnant times (so the tail end of the Galactic Civil War).

I, for one, am really glad to see X-Wing vs TIE Fighter coming back (even though EA has chosen not to resurrect the brand). The only downside for me is that it means that the version I was whipping up as a text proposal for my own amusement over the past year will now ever be seen by others as a reaction to SWS!

No, seriously, I've already got over it!

I recently got it as well. It's smooth gameplay and replayable due to the high skill cap, but it sucks on high ping.
