Multiplayer has a simple dogfight mode, but the best part looks like fleet battles, the main ‘multi-stage’ mode that has you and your online pals plot, plan and execute a battle over its many phases.

All the action takes place in the cockpit and the game will hopefully be a worthy addition to the Star Wars canon after the success of older franchises like Rogue Squadron and Battlefront.

The game is available on 2 October for PS4, Xbox One, Origin PC, Steam, Epic Games Store and VR on PS4 and PC with cross-play support.
