EA Puts Battlefront's Aerial Combat On Display At Gamescom

I remember playing Warhawk and always wanting to be in the air. I was a pilot, first and foremost.

Perhaps you'll feel the same way in the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront, especially after seeing new gameplay of aerial battles.

Publisher Electronic Arts showed off a new trailer at Gamescom 2015 today and the new 20-player Fighter Squadron Mode was at the forefront. The battle took place over Sullust, a fittingly rocky planet with magma everywhere (obviously not for ground forces). We see X-Wings, TIE Fighters, A-Wings and TIE Interceptors, and we were offered third-person and in-cockpit views for many. In addition to 20 human players, 20 AI fighters can participate as well.

And if you're wondering, yes, the Millennium Falcon with Han Solo at the helm also joins the fight. You gotta check it out:

I've waited a lifetime for something like this. I want it in VR.

EDIT: I'm also waiting for Destiny to add something like this.

I'd still rather have a new game in the X-Wing/TIE Fighter flight sim series. The aerial combat of this one just wasn't that great in the beta I played a few weeks ago. Though there's still plenty of time to improve it, but I'd still prefer to battle in space then on the planet surface.

loved the x-wing and tie-fighter PC games as well. If any games deserve a full on remaster/remake it's those. I noticed this stuff was dumbed down for the avg console gamer these days, but oh well. You can't expect mainstream sim games anymore.
