The Star Wars: Squadrons story campaign was on display today on Opening Night Live.

A new look at gameplay from Star Wars: Squadrons debuted today during Opening Night Live. The demo focused entirely on Squadrons’ single-player story, featuring some cinematic moments and plenty of gameplay action.

We also got to see the structure of the campaign, how the perspective will alternate between Republic and Empire, and even a few of the mission types players will get to play.

Developed by EA Motive, Squadrons offers a single-player campaign that lets you play from both perspectives, and features multiplayer with  5v5, class-based space combat. You can also customise the look of your starfighter and pilot. Speaking of the former, starfighters can also be upgraded using components earned through play.

It’s coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 2. The game is also playable in VR on PC and PS4. The game will support cross-play across all platforms at launch.
