Disney is taking its next stab at the Star Wars license in video game form. Today, the company announced a brand new space combat title in the franchise’s already well-established catalogue.
Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is a new, free-to-play space shooter. It features 16 player dogfight combat in classic Star Wars locales. In traditional free-to-play fashion, ships will be customizable and unlockable.
The announcement came alongside a site launch and the opening of beta registrations. You can try your hand at putting your name down for the beta, but, be warned: the system has been boogered since its launch. The team behind it is aware, and they offered this on Facebook:
We apologize to those who have had troubles signing up for the Beta. It looks like there may be Mynocks in the system again! We’ll clean them out and have you up and running again as soon as possible.
Yep, mynocks. Love it.
We’ll have more on Star Wars: Attack Squadrons as it comes. For now, it’s giving us all kinds of Rogue Squadron vibes. We’re nerding out already.
