    The trailer for the new video game from EA's Motive Studios, the team behind the single player campaign in Battlefront II, is here. Titled Star Wars: Squadrons the game will release October 2 2020.



    Check out the trailer below:

    The game sees players take on the role of pilots for the New Republic or the Empire, competing in first-person multiplayer dogfights and a new single player storyline set after Return of the Jedi.



    Shortly after the leak of an image a few days ago, on the Xbox website, EA Star Wars' youtube page put up the announcement that the video would release June 15.



    In the lead up to that the EA Star Wars Twitter teased the game with posters representing both sides of the fight.



    Firstly the New Republic's X-Wing:

    And then the Empire's TIE Fighter:

    The game's website gives us a good look at the pilots (likely from the single-player part) and the fighters in play:



    For the New Republic:

    And for the Empire:

    It's exciting to get more video game content arriving so soon and hopefully the game lives up to the legacy left by the Rogue Squadron and Starfighter series of games.



    While the trailer doesn't have gameplay footage we will be getting some June 18 at EA Play Live.

    Hoping there are B-Wings, though... :)

    A trailer without any gameplay footage... now that's kind of lame, isn't it. Looking forward to June 18th.

    Story content is (almost) all I care about, so if the campaign is any good, then instant buy for me. Plus, it's the New Republic, and any post-RotJ content is especially welcome.

    A game which won't really have a story and is mainly an online multiplayer game should relinquish CGI story trailers and focus on gameplay. No one is buying EA games for their stories.

    So I agree with @RockyRoadHux, this trailer was pretty boring and not exciting at all.

    You expect them to put everything in a two minute trailer? I'm not really excited for this game, having Hera and Wedge help, but I just hope they're not cameos.

    One of my first great Star Wars gaming experiences was Rogue Squadron for Gamecube. So I love the idea of a game that really focuses in on space battles. Buuuut I'm waiting to see how much this game relies on online multiplayer. I just don't do online gaming. I know that makes me an odd duck nowadays. I'll only get this game if it's worth the $$$ for the single-player experience or local multiplayer.

    Yeah, the "2 minute" limitation was either imposed by the developer or possibly the publisher. YouTube certainly doesn't have such a restriction, obviously.

    So no, I don't expect everything to be put into a 2 minute video- but I think it would've been wise to have released more than just this two minute story trailer, especially as you mention that the game is pretty clearly built for competitive online play.

    I will say that it's maybe a little comforting that they seem to have so much faith in the offline component that it's what they chose to lead with yesterday, though.

    I guess I just feel that it's reasonable enough to be a little upset that we didn't get gameplay footage of the *checks notes* game.

    And I'm sure we will eventually, but titles have been announced before with a cinematic trailer and gameplay footage (both montages and even sometimes extended play sections). Just would've been a lot more satisfying, is all I'm saying. Of course I'm still excited for it.
