The latest footage of Star Wars: Battlefront from this year's Gamescom shows a new gameplay mode named Fighter Squadron that allows gamers to take part in hectic 20-player aerial dogfights, piloting X-Wings, TIE fighters, and even the Millennium Falcon itself. "Fighter Squadron will put you inside the cockpit of some of the most memorable vehicles ever seen in the Star Wars galaxy," said Battlefront senior producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir at the Gamescom event.
"We want to give fans the thrill of living out their Star Wars battle fantasies."
The footage is the latest from developer EA Dice, which has previously shown on-the-ground battle footage, including a Jedi lightsaber battle. As with previous clips, this new Fighter Squadron mode feels as true to the original Star Wars films as any game that's been released before. "We want to give fans the thrill of living out their Star Wars battle fantasies in a game that is authentic, visually stunning and fun," said Ingvarsdottir.
Star Wars: Battlefront will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17th.
