Disney announced Star Wars Attack Squadrons. Could this finally be the spiritual successor to X-Wing, one of the best classic computer gaming series from the 90’s? Maybe, but the announcement uses a lot of scary buzzwords like Free to Play and Web Based.
Disney Interactive announced today the first details for the upcoming online game Star Wars™: Attack Squadrons and has invited fans to sign up for a chance to join the action during beta tests in the new year.
The new title is a free-to-play, open web, space combat game offering an intense multi-player battle experience where players can customize and tune popular Star Wars ships, including the Rebel Alliance’s X-Wing fighter or the Empire’s TIE Interceptor. In Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, players will enter exciting dogfighting action with up to 16 players at a time as they maneuver through iconic Star Wars locations. Future ships, environments, and game details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Star Wars fans can sign up now for a chance to participate in the closed beta atwww.starwars.com/attacksquadrons with the first play session beginning early 2014.
