Disney Interactive has today revealed Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, a free-to-play space combat game for PC. Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is being developed by Area 52 Games, in conjunction with Disney Interactive and LucasArts.
This actually sounds like it might work. Sounds much like War Thunder/ World of Warplanes in the Star Wars Universe.. Pretty sweet.
Mmm, to be honest, this already feels like a step in the wrong direction for Star Wars games. I think everyone or maybe just me haha expected a next gen completely retail looking Star fighter game akin to Star Citizen. This sort of looks cheap, and it's got micro-transactions painted all over it. It's not like Disney would have risked money had they produced a Star Wars game like Star Citizen, look how much support it's gotten by the PC community! But we'll see, there's a glimmer of hope in my eyes that this MIGHT BE good.
I understand what your saying, but I think we should take ourselves lucky to game that might be "okay" this is Disney were talking about. F2P is a touchy subject, but from what Ive seen on the range of F2P games on the PS4 it can work sometimes you just have to take them with a grain of salt cos lets face it, they are free. Its better than some IOS star wars kiddy app because that sounds like something Disney would do.
Yeah fair enough, F2P is pretty awesome on Warframe, so hopefully Disney makes a system similar to that! And oh boy, those kiddy apps just haven't come yet! haha
Omg, I just realised this entire time I was thinking of the X-Wing series haha! Maybe Disney is working on a proper sequel to that amazing franchise simultaneously!
In space would get kind of boring, but if they mixed in some cool planet locations and added tons of aircraft it could work similar to War Thunder.
Probably as close as we'll get to Rogue Squadron 4 so I'll take it :) EDIT: Anyone get else unable to sign up for the beta?
Nothing will ever beat the hallowed Rogue Squadron in my eyes. That game robbed me of my youth. And I would gladly pay again.
Why can't we just have a new Tie Fighter/X-wing game!
I wish there was a new Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, I used to play that all the time...
f2p game not coming to ps4...I'll pass
Of course you will, you don't have a choice
Star wars has been milked to shit anyone still interested in this churned out crap are just sheep imo. With all the money the franchise makes you think there would be a new battlefront or KOTOR.
"With all the money the franchise makes you think there would be a new battlefront" .... You miss E3?
There is a new Battlefront coming in 2015. New Kotor game is likely as well,but not until 2016ish.
Roll on Star Wars:Battlefront :)
16 player dogfights wow that's LAME! Every other PC space combat game has dogfights in the 100's or thousands. StarCitizen Eve:Valkyrie Elite:Dangerous are the front runners for space combat
