Star Wars: Battlefront Fighter Squadron mode gameplay footage

X-Wings! TIE-Fighters! Millennium Falcon! And more.

DICE has shown off a first look at Star Wars: Battlefront's aerial combat mode, Fighter Squadron.

Footage shown during EA's Gamescom 2015 press conference showed off dogfights between X-Wings and TIE-Fighters.

An Imperial Shuttle, Boba Fett's Slave I and the Millennium Falcon are also included.

20 AI ships will be in action at once, DICE concluded.

Here's how it looks:
