EA Motive's next game is Star Wars: Squadrons, a space combat game that was leaked last week on the Microsoft Store.
According to VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb, the game is the same title that had previously leaked on the PlayStation Network that was entitled Star Wars: Project Maverick.
Now we know so much more about this exciting new Star Wars title.
The game will launch on October 2, so we don't have long until we'll be able to hop into an X-Wing or TIE Fighter!
Platforms include the PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam, Origin, Epic Game Store) as well as cross-play being supported for all platforms.
It's also playable entirely in VR on both PlayStation VR and PC VR platforms.
The game will not be a full-price game and cost only £39.99.
Gameplay has been shown as part of EA Play 2020. Check it out below!
What Is Star Wars Squadrons?
This brand new game, developed by Motive Studios, is an immersive, first-person space dogfighting experience set in the beloved Star Wars galaxy that brings the starfighter pilot fantasy to life.
While it reminds us of X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, it's an entirely new game taking place during the final days of the galactic empire and the rise of the new republic after the events of Star War The Return of the Jedi.
The game will include single-player campaign and multiplayer as well as VR aspects according to @Wario64.
Campaign & Multiplayer
Multiplayer will feature thrilling 5v5 multiplayer dogfights, monumental fleet battles, and an original story set during the final days of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
Single Player Preview
A single-player preview for Star Wars: Squadrons was revealed at Gamescon 2020.

Star Wars Squadrons Leaks on Microsoft Store
According to sources, the title is a space combat game that features a single-player campaign but is predominantly focused on multiplayer.
It's slated to release later this year and will mark the fourth major Star Wars release from EA after two Battlefront titles and the more positively-received Jedi: Fallen Order.
The publisher has also cancelled multiple games in the Star Wars franchise, including one that was being worked on by Visceral.
Could Squadrons be the Rogue Squadron successor we've waited years for? We likely won't have long to wait to find out, with the publisher's EA Play event right around the corner.
