Star Wars: Attack Squadrons

Post by Jedi Power » Tue Dec 17, 2013 4:01 pm

The Official Star Wars Site has announced a new Star Wars game! Star Wars: Attack Squadrons! Get ready to pilot -- and make some special modifications to -- some of the most famous starships in the galaxy. Disney Interactive announced today the first details for the upcoming online game Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, and has invited fans to sign up for a chance to join the action during beta tests in the new year.

The new title is a free-to-play, open web, space combat game offering an intense multiplayer battle experience where players can customize and tune popular Star Wars ships, including the Rebel Alliance's X-wing fighter or the Empire's TIE Interceptor. In Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, players will enter exciting dogfighting action with up to 16 players at a time as they maneuver through iconic Star Wars locations. Future ships, environments, and game details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Star Wars fans can sign up now for a chance to participate in the closed beta at http://www.starwars.com/attacksquadrons with the first play session beginning early 2014.

Star Wars: Attack Squadrons was developed by Area 52 in conjunction with Disney Interactive and LucasArts.

One of my friends thought this game was using the "World of Tanks" gameplay model: No complex missions, just destroy your opponent or capture the base. And while it may be free to play, it's likely to be "pay to win", b/c they may make you buy many of the more advanced modifications.

Ug. I hate free to play. As Wildstar says, it turns into "pay to win". I'll check it out but probably won't play it long term.
