Developer EA Motive has lifted the lid on its current-gen Star Wars project with an announcement trailer that confirms last week's leak. Star Wars: Squadrons is a PlayStation 4 title arriving on 2nd October 2020 that sees you take to the stars as a pilot of various space ships. It's set after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and includes both a single player campaign and a suite of multiplayer options.

We've embedded the announcement trailer above, but you'll be able to see Star Wars: Squadrons in action with a full gameplay reveal at EA Play this Thursday. The game will also support cross-play between PC, Xbox One, and PS4 platforms, meaning you can team up with friends on other consoles should the Dark Side prove too difficult to take down on your own. Rather excitingly, Star Wars: Squadrons also supports PlayStation VR -- you can play the entire game with the headset on.
