There’s not much information on the game right now, being developed by Area 52 studios. The official website (where you can register to enter the beta) describes the game like this:
Star Wars™ : Attack Squadrons is a free-to-play online space combat game where players customize iconic Star Wars™ ships and engage in high-velocity 16 player dogfights in fabled Star Wars locations.
It’s not much to go on, but I’m always excited about being able to dogfight in the galaxy far, far away. I’m not overly thrilled by the idea of it being a free-to-play game, mostly because it still something that’s handled so poorly. If done right, this could be a damn fun game, but there’s no telling how it’s going to go. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
