In the lead up to the release of the game on October 2, Star Wars: Squadrons is releasing an ‘original, standalone, CG short’ on Monday at 8am Pacific Time. The short will be a chance for viewers to ‘meet one of the ace pilots you’ll fly alongside’.
The promo image for the short features an Imperial helmet, meaning it’s likely the pilot we’re going to meet is fighting for the Empire. The short is a collaboration between Motive Studio, Lucasfilm and ILM, which hopefully indicates a high level of quality.
