But it's free to play

We love us some Rogue Squadron around these parts, but Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is 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.

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.
