SW: Battlefront's Fighter Squadron Mode is the X-Wing vs. TIE Comeback We've Been Waiting For | XBA

To this day, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter is one of the most fondly remembered Star Wars games, and soon its spirit will live on in Star Wars: Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode. It's all fairly self-explanatory stuff, as the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire do battle in the skies above Battlefront's multitude of planets, reliving all of your favourite Star Wars dogfighting moments, even if these don't happen to take place among the stars. You'll soon find that this really doesn't matter.

lol no it's not!

XvT was a simulator. This is not even close.

That's like saying Cod is the next arma

That being said I'm stoked for this game.

Yeah, besides the space setting, what about the missions, the plethora of options for managing your fighter and the many different kind of ships present in the game, nope, this doesn't remind me one bit about XvT, dog fighting isn't the only thing that gave the series it's identity, you can say that for Rogue Squadron or Starfighter that were more focused on combat and action set pieces.

Exactly. At least on pc we still get our flight sims although I'm getting battlefront for ps4 Cuz my damn friends. I'll go to ELITE dangerous for my space sims (seeing as star citizen will launch when I'm dead).

Yeah that title made me laugh. I've been wishing for a new X-Wing vs TIE Fighter for years, and this mode does not cut it. I do want the game, but not for this mode in particular.

Someone needs to create a Star Wars fighter simulator, I miss Rogue Squadron.

Allsystemgamer1213d ago

With EA at the helm well only see shooters.

Rogue Squadron was no simulator but it was definitely fun.
