Star Wars: Squadrons Premieres A New CG Short Called "Hunted"

As part of the buildup to the release of Star Wars: Squadrons, Electronic Arts has released a new CG short called "Hunted". This is an awesome six minute video that tells a small part of the story for the game that gives a little insight into what's happening. In this story, Imperial forces are in retreat an attack by the New Republic at the Imperial dockyard orbiting Var-Shaa. You watch what happens from the viewpoint of Titan Squadron Leader Varko Grey, as the last TIE pilot on the battlefield being hunted down by an X-wing. We won't ruin it for you, but you can watch it below as the game will be launching on October 2nd.
