Ian Sherr (he/him/his) grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, so he's always had a connection to the tech world. As an editor at large at CNET, he wrote about Apple, Microsoft, VR, video games and internet troubles. Aside from writing, he tinkers with tech at home, is a longtime fencer -- the kind with swords -- and began woodworking during the pandemic.

Jackson Ryan was CNET's science editor, and a multiple award-winning one at that. Earlier, he'd been a scientist, but he realized he wasn't very happy sitting at a lab bench all day. Science writing, he realized, was the best job in the world -- it let him tell stories about space, the planet, climate change and the people working at the frontiers of human knowledge. He also owns a lot of ugly Christmas sweaters.

EA's Star Wars: Squadrons spaceship combat game is coming this fall.

Electronic Arts

Electronic Arts pulled back the curtain on a handful of its upcoming titles during the EA Play Live event, with one huge surprise and a longer look at a new Star Wars title.

The centerpiece of the online showcase was that Star Wars game, Star Wars: Squadrons. The spaceship combat title was teased on Monday but had a much longer reveal, showing off different gameplay modes, vehicles and customization options. The 50 minute presentation also showed off a couple of titles from independent studios including It Takes Two from Hazelight and the gothic Lost in Random from Zoink. 

There was also a major surprise: A Skate sequel has finally been announced. Yes, Skate is back. We didn't get a single piece of footage, but the hype for a new Skate is so high the announcement may have overshadowed the rest of the show. 

But enough of us yammering on, you're here for trailers! And those trailers are below.
