I thought Star Wars Battlefront was going to have a tough time becoming even more of a spectacle, but EA has taken the wraps off of a 20-play Fighter Squadron mode. In a move that should stave off the ‘no space battles’ critics, Fighter Squadron pits 10 vs 10 human players, with an additional 20 AI-controlled ships paving the way to massive 40-ship battles.
Fighter Squadron’s all about dogfighting, with aerial combat between some of Star Wars’ most iconic ships. The Hero power-up also makes a return, so players can even taken control of the Millennium Falcon or Boba Fett’s Slave-1 for some Battlefield domination. X-Wings, A-Wings, TIE fighters, Interceptors; you name it, you can weave it through laser fire and crash it into terra firma with a thud. [More]
