Considering how many positive reviews it's had (including ours), Star Wars: Squadrons deals are very tempting in the run up to the Holiday season. Plus, it's less expensive than a normal release. Because more than a few of us are investing in next-gen consoles this year, being able to save a bit of money here and there wouldn't go amiss.
It's certainly worth the fuss. It looks stunning, and we've waited a long time for a new starfighter game in the Star Wars universe. As shown by the Star Wars: Squadrons extended gameplay trailer, it's ready to deliver. Its focus on becoming an ace pilot - with new, impressive manoeuvres and mechanics for diverting ship power where it's needed most - sets it apart from the flight-sim mode in Star Wars: Battlefront 2. What's more, compatibility with VR makes it even more compelling for those who've dreamed about jumping into the cockpit of an X-Wing.
A spiritual successor to the Rogue Squadron series, Star Wars: Squadrons is set shortly after Return of the Jedi. As such, it pits the New Republic against the remnants of the Empire with a single-player campaign featuring heroes from the movies, books, and animated TV series (Hera Syndulla fans, represent). There's also a multiplayer mode featuring five-vs-five dogfights and larger fleet battles, not unlike Battlefront 2's Supremacy mode.
