Free "Star Wars: Squadrons"

Starting November 24th, the Epic Games Store will be giving away the 
'starfighter' game "Star Wars: Squadrons" (2020), on PC for free,  until December 1, 2022:

".....though shattered after the 'Battle of Endor', the 'Galactic Empire' closes in on the ''Bormea Sector', determined to crush the recently-formed 'New Republic'. 

"The Republic's classified 'Project Starhawk' represents a tipping point in the 'Galactic Civil War' and ace pilots on each side will be instrumental in its outcome." 

"Now Master the art of starfighter combat in the authentic piloting experience 'Star Wars: Squadrons'. Buckle up and feel the adrenaline of first-person, multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron. Pilots who enlist will step into the cockpits of starfighters from both the 'New Republic' and 'Imperial fleets' and fight in strategic '5v5' space battles. 

"Modify your starfighter, and adjust the composition of your squadron to suit varying playstyles and crush the opposition. Pilots will triumph as a team and complete tactical objectives across known and never-before-seen battlefields, including the gas giant of 'Yavin Prime' and the shattered moon of 'Galitan'. 

Take control of starfighters such as the 'X-wing' and 'TIE' fighter. Customize loadouts and cosmetics. Divert power between weapons, shields and engines, while immersing yourself in the cockpit. In addition, players will have the option to play the entirety of the game in virtual reality ('VR')..."
