There’s Gonna Be a New Star Wars Pilot Video Game!
I have a dream of ultimate Star Wars dogfight video gaming. Imagine a system where you suit up in a VR headset that places you in the cockpit of an X-Wing or a TIE fighter. Imagine you’ve got a microphone that connects you with your whole squad, each of them plugged into similar VR. Now imagine you’re all racing towards the Death Star, a squadron of X-Wings ready to begin your trench run.
I’m pretty confident this technology exists. And here’s hoping the new video game Star Wars: Squadrons makes it happen!
The trailer is pretty light on actual gameplay, but it should still be good. Video games did a hell of a job with Star Wars dogfighting years ago with the Rogue Squadron and TIE Fighter games. Surely they’ve only improved since then. And hopefully we’ll make my dream a reality. Maybe we don’t all need VR, but it would still be super cool to plug in alongside your squadron and fly joint missions together.
I think this is something they could put at Disney World. Create whole banks of video game cabinet cockpits. Like those gold people from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but for Star Wars fighters. They’ve already got that big Millenium Falcon simulator. Let’s get some bigger, better, team simulators!
Anyway, Squadrons comes out in October.
