Electronic Arts may be one of the scummiest video game companies out there, at least in our opinion, but there’s no denying on my part that I’m extremely interested in Star Wars Squadrons. EA released a new trailer for their upcoming game today. There’s also a note that you’ll be able to get some skins as pre-order bonus content. That alone has me wary that it’ll be another Star Wars Battlefront II and be just rife with microtransactions. Considering the game is listed at $39.99, I would not be surprised if that were the case.
I’m okay with pre-orders most of the time. I’m drawn in usually by the art books, SteelBook cases, or some other physical goods. Skins? Not really my cup of tea. And as excited as I am about this game, I am holding off on this one.
Star Wars: Squadrons will be released on October 2, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
