According to the game’s official website, Attack Squadron  will pit players in “high velocity 16 player dogfights in fabled Star Wars locations.” The game will feature three PVP modes:

  • Free-for-all: fight in 16 player deathmatches
  • Team dogfight: team up and take on your enemy team
  • Base Defense: Either coordinate an attack on an enemy base, or lead the assault on one

Players will also be able to customize iconic Star Wars ships, including the X-wing fighter and the Empire’s TIE Interceptor. No word yet on how many ships will be available overall, or at launch, but according to a post on the Star Wars website “future ships, environments and game details will be announced in the coming weeks.”

Developed by Area 52, in conjunction with Disney Interactive and LucasArts, Attack Squadron has started to accept Beta test invites, with the first sessions starting in the new year.

    Every time I see free to play I roll my eyes. At this point it is basically an insult to anyone’s intelligence. Maybe i’m alone, but I long for the days of actual games, even offline games. Why it is thought that everyone desires to be perpetually connected to other players in every game they play remains a mystery to me.

    Sell me a product that you have passion for. Not one with a free download and a cash shop. Not known but a safe assumption.

    Free to play needs to die a horrible death.

    Sounds harsh but my opinion, obviously.
