BioWare has released some new information, a new trailer, and several screenshots for its upcoming free digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, titled Galactic Starfighter.

Galactic Starfighter pits players against one another in 12 vs. 12 free-flight space combat. Players will earn “requisition” as they play the Starfighter mode, with Ship Requisition being awarded as you level up your ship and Fleet Requisition is obtained by converting Ship Requisition and can be used to purchase ship upgrades.

Players can also make use of their unlocked companions to fill out their ship’s crew, with each offering a different bonus. Each crew contains a co-pilot, offensive, tactical, defensive, and engineering positions. The expansion also comes with five new companions, which can be used to fill out new players’ crews–they can’t be used in the ground game at all.

Subscribers will be able to access Galactic Starfighter from December 3, 2013, preferred players can get in on January 14, 2014, and finally free-to-play players can join in on February 4, 2014.
