Watch: Star Wars Battlefront Lets You Pilot X-Wings, Slave I, Millennium Falcon, and More
Star Wars Battlefront is making up for its lack of space battles with a whole game mode dedicated to on-planet aerial dog fights. In a new trailer for Battlefront's 'Fighter Squadron' mode, we discover that players will be able to take control of some of the Star Wars universe's most iconic spacecraft. Many of the traditional fighters are there, from A-Wings to X-Wings, from TIE Interceptors to TIE Bombers; Star Wars Battlefront will offer an unprecedented level of choice when it comes to what steed you ride into battle. As if that wasn't enough, you'll also be able to take control of more specialized spacecraft such as The Millennium Falcon and Boba Fett's Slave I.



While we're still disappointed at the lack of true space battles, the prospect of being able to take on Slave I in the Millennium Falcon is an exciting one. Added to this is the beautiful level of detail on all the craft; the flickering of that A-Wing's thrusters and the scarred surface of Slave I are just a couple of the observations that we really liked.

Here's what EA had to say about the Fighter Squadron mode:
