Disney announces Star Wars space combat game Attack Squadrons

Free-to-play PC title going in to beta next year

Disney Interactive has announced free-to-play PC space combat game Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, which is in development at new Seattle-based studio Area 52 Games.

Attack Squadrons allows for 16-player dogfights and the ability to customise "iconic Star Wars ships" including Tie-Fighters and X-Wings.

The game will also feature team-based and base defence type modes, as well as various unlockable rewards.

A beta test is planned for 2014 and interested parties can sign up now via the game's website.


The Attack Squadron name was first spotted publicly in July when parent company Disney registered about four dozen domain names.

Following the agreement of a multi-year deal between EA and Disney , Battlefield maker DICE, Visceral Games and BioWare are set to develop Star Wars games.
