Electronic Arts has released an impressive CG short film for its upcoming Star Wars game, Star Wars: Squadrons. In this short film, Squadron Leader Varko Grey finds himself as the last TIE pilot on the battlefield, hunted relentlessly by a renegade New Republic X-wing.
Created in collaboration by Motive Studios, Lucasfilm, and ILM, “Hunted” is set before the events of Star Wars: Squadrons. Furthermore, this trailer introduces us to one of the ace pilots who we’ll be fighting alongside in the game’s story mode.
In Star Wars Squadrons, players take control of starfighters such as the X-wing and TIE fighter. According to EA, we’ll be able to play both sides in this Star Wars game. Players will also be able to customize loadouts and cosmetics, divert power between weapons, shields, and engines.
Star Wars Squadrons releases on October 2nd. You can also find the game’s official PC system requirements here.
