Star Wars X Wing and TIE Fighter are two of the best flight combat based games ever made, at least in my opinion. So I’ve been waiting for an announcement to a sequel to that series for a while for the new gen. This isn’t that announcement but it is a game that appears to be close, though it’s only for PC.
Disney has just announced free to play title Star Wars: Attack Squadron which will feature 16 player matches across three game types including Free For All, Team Dogfight, and Base Defense. There will also be customisation options for ships, with updates coming regularly.
At the moment there is the opportunity to sign up to have a chance at join a closed beta for the game, though the link indicating the sign up page doesn’t seem to lead anywhere. It’s probably getting hammered at the minute, however if you want to try and get through the link is here.
