EA’s Star Wars: Squadrons CG Short Got Us Rooting For The Empire

This is quite possibly the greatest Star Wars dogfight you’ve even seen.

Made in collaboration by Motive Studios, Lucasfilm, and ILM, “Hunted” is set before the events of Star Wars: Squadrons.

Meet Titan Squadron Leader Varko Grey, one of the ace pilots players will be flying alongside in Star Wars: Squadrons, as he makes a final stand against a New Republic X-Wing pilot. All the movies usually have us rooting for the rebels to win, but in this original standalone CG short, it seems the tables have turned and the X-Wing pilot is the one giving off evil merciless vibes while the TIE pilot is the one escaping and trying to survive.

Star Wars: Squadrons will be out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam and Epic Games Store) on 2 October 2020. The game will be fully playable in Virtual Reality (VR) on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-play support.
