Disney Interactive announced a new Star Wars space combat game for the PC that may be up the alley for those that speak of the good old days of X-Wing vs Tie Fighter. Star Wars: Attack Squadron is coming as a free-to-play title with beta sign-ups being taken now.

In development at Area 52 Games in conjunction with Disney Interactive and LucasArts, Star Wars: Attack Squadron will support dogfights with up to 16 players across three different gametypes - Free for All, Team Dogfight and Base Defense.

Players will be able to purchase new ships and customize and modify fighters from the sci-fi franchise including the X-Wing, Y-Wing and all different flavors of the Tie Fighter. There are also more than a couple of hints that the Millenium Falcon and Bobba Fett's Slave I ship will come into play as well. New ships will be released on a monthly basis.

Those interested in taking part in the beta should head over to the official site and sign-up. A free Disney account will need to be created if you do not have one already. The closed beta will start sometime in early 2014.

For those wondering, this will not be an EA published games as Disney Interactive gave the publisher exclusive to Star Wars games for consoles and not online PC games or mobile games. That still leaves questions around Area 52 Games which is a brand new studio.
