There have been several flight-focused Star Wars games in the past, namely in the X-Wing, Rogue Squadron and Starfighter series. In any case, we’ll find out more about what EA has in store on Monday, when it releases the first trailer at 11 AM ET.

The publisher’s last Star Wars title, the Respawn-developed Jedi: Fallen Order, was a runaway success, so Squadrons has some big boots to fill. EA Motive, which worked on Star Wars: Battlefront II, is said to be developing the new game.
