Back in July, a visually stunning space combat game called Arc Squadron caught our eye with its fantastic trailer. Stunning in part because Arc Squadron is powered by the Unreal Engine, but it also took some gameplay cues from the classic on-rails shooter Starfox which particularly struck our fancy.

Well, it sounds like developer Psyonix is getting pretty close to releasing Arc Squadron, and they've released a new teaser trailer that condenses much of the gameplay from the first trailer down into a nice, manageable bite to whet your appetite.

It doesn't really show much we haven't seen before, but it still looks fantastic and, well, we still really can't wait to get our hands on it. According to a PR email sent our way, Arc Squadron will be releasing in "the coming weeks", so get on over to the thread in our forums for some discussion and we'll be sure to let you know when it finally drops.

    A lot of good Unreal games coming out now, this looks like an instabuy.

    Looks good!  I just hope they don't over-do it with the virtual controls.  A lot of flight-type games seem to make things more complicated than they need to be.

    Definitely looks interesting. Remember the initial article. This game had slipped my mind until now. Oh how I love the holiday season. Just 2 more weeks of garbage until November and December are here and there are boatloads of fantastic games like this.

    10 hours of game play? Don't get me wrong, the game looks amazing, but only 10 hours of serious play? Is there replay potential? Future episodes?

      10 hours is pretty darn good.  You get 8-15 hours of play on a console.

        Playtime depends on the game. If this is an arcady-type game, which it seems to be, then 7-10 hours is more than reasonable. Unless consumers would prefer it to be loaded with iapps or mandatory cool off periods, which, of you don't spend more money, would force you to grind for 100 hours

    Local and/or online multiplayer are no mentioned in trailer :-(
