Have a first look at Star Wars Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode

Ground combat is for suckers - everybody knows it's all about the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter. EA and DICE have offered up the first teaser of Star Wars Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode, with a brief trailer showing X-wings, A-wings, TIE fighters, and TIE interceptors locked in intense aerial battles over the volcanic surface of Sullust.

It is just a teaser, so we don't know anything beyond what you can see in the 12 seconds of footage below. Not to besmirch the team deathmatch Blasts and co-op survival Missions, but a mode focused on high-speed dogfights, all glorious barrel rolls and energy allotment (with no surface-to-air missile launching ground troops to worry about) sounds like just the sort of grand Star Wars wish fulfillment I want from Battlefront.

However Fighter Squadron mode works, it looks like we'll be much better acquainted with the Rebel and Imperial fleets come August 5.
