Star Wars: Squadrons gets a new trailer showing an early Imperial mission

By Heidi Nicholas,
A new trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons popped up during the Opening Night Live showcase, giving us a more in-depth look at the game's story.

Narrative producer Susanne Hunka says the single-player story "is one of daring pilots and deep-seated rivalries." Star Wars: Squadrons will put you in the shoes of two pilots on both sides of the conflict, and the trailer above shows us a glimpse of an Imperial mission. Agent Thorne has info on Project Starhawk, a classified New Republic endeavour, and you'll be going behind enemy lines to extract her and bring her to the extraction team, while under fire from Republic fighters.

The game follows the events of Return of the Jedi, after the Galactic Empire has been weakened following the Battle of Endor. "Each mission will immerse you into the escalating conflict between the New Republic and a shattered Empire," says Hunka. In between, you'll debrief with your allies and customise your starfighters. "The stories of these rival squadrons will push the war to the brink, and define the galaxy for years to come."

Star Wars: Squadrons launches on October 2nd.
