Starfighter combat game Star Wars: Squadrons is only weeks away now, and to help build anticipation a very cool CG short film has dropped. 

Hunted is set before events in the game, and was crafted by developers Motive Studios, Lucasfilm and ILM. It introduces us to one of the ace pilots who we’ll be fighting alongside in the story.

“The Empire’s retreat after a surprise attack marks yet another stumble in the wake of the second Death Star’s destruction. But for one member of Titan Squadron, the battle is far from over. Squadron Leader Varko Grey finds himself as the last TIE pilot on the battlefield, hunted relentlessly by a renegade New Republic X-wing.”

Star Wars: Squadrons launches on October 2 for PS4 (with added PS VR support) and Xbox One. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
