In addition to licensing out the money-printing Star Wars license to experienced external studios like DICE and Rovio, after shuttering LucasArts, it looks like Disney will still be continuing to create some Star Wars games in-house, as the firm has just announced the development of Star Wars : Attack Squadrons at the newly-founded studio Area 52 in Seattle.

The videogame world has been begging for a return to the beloved X-Wing and Tie Fighter franchises, but it's difficult to tell whether rekindling that spirit is the intention here. Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is described as "a free-to-play online space combat game where players customize iconic Star Wars hips and engage in high-velocity 16 player dogfights in fabled Star Wars locations"
Intense PVP Action:
Battle online in 3 PVP game modes
  • free for All: Fight for glory in 16 player death matches.
  • Team Dogfight: Join a team and decimate the enemy team.
  • Base Defense: Defend your base or coordinate an attack on your enemy‚Äôs base.
Ship Customization
Upgrade and personalize your ships as you collect and modify them to your own specifications.

Team Play
Team up with your friends and develop a community of Starfighter Pilots.

Rewards
Earn points after successful matches to unlock new items and upgrades.

Regular Updates
New ships, items and upgrades every month.
There's a few screenshots and a rather bland trailer available below, and you can find out very little else about the game over at starwarsattacksquadrons.com, were registrations are already being taken for a closed beta test early in 2014.

I want this to be good so badly. It's been far too long since a "Rogue Squadron" game. But I'm expecting the absolute worst.

Let me decipher that cleverly disguised Disney speak for you..

"a free-to-play online space combat game where players pay to customize popular Star Wars ships and engage in high-velocity 16 player dogfights in fabled Star Wars locations"

Cool, Hope they have a single player or off-line version. Would be better if it was just standard multiplayer, like BF4 or something. Fight to earn points to unlock stuff for your ships.

I have been waiting since X-Wing Alliance for something like this to come along. Hopefully there is a provision for a single-player campaign mode to be included at some point.
