We love us some Rogue Squadron around these parts, but Star Wars: Attack Squadronsis not that. Wishing does not make it so. Disney Interactive announced the Area 52 Games project this morning with the trailer above and some basic details.
A free-to-play online space combat title centered around PvP, Attack Squadrons will offer customization through items and upgrades, which is presumably where we'll be able to optionally spend real-world money. There's support for up to 16 players, with a few modes: Free for All, Team Dogfight, and Base Defense. Confirmed ships include the X-Wing and TIE Interceptor.
Should you have some interest in playing this, there are sign-ups for a closed beta which starts next year. Just head to the official site for the game at the link above.
