‘Star Wars: Assault Squadrons’: the space combat sim you have no reason not to try

LucasArts, Disney Interactive, and 52 Games have teamed up to create an online multiplayer, space combat game for PC titled Star Wars: Assault Squadrons. And it’s free-to-play. If you need to hear more before getting at least a little excited, we can’t be friends.

The game will head into beta by 2014, and sign up is available now. Assault Squadron will feature 16 player matches, and allow you to customize and tune familiar Star Wars vehicles, including the X-Wing fighter and TIE Interceptor.

There is still a lot more to hear about this game going into 2014, but again, it’s a free-to-play space combat game for 16 people at a time, featuring Star Wars ships you can customize. If you are a Star Wars fan and aren’t at least intrigued by this, you may be dead.

The game will feature three game modes: 16 player free for all matches, Team Dogfight, and Base Defense where you defend your base while attacking the opposing team’s. The developers are also promising new, monthly content.
