Star Wars: Squadrons Articles
The successor to X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter is finally here and it's pretty damn good. But a simple arcade game it is not. Star Wars: Squadrons isn't a hardcore flight sim, but its flight model and mechanics necessitate a bit more nuance than something like Starfighter Assault in Star Wars: Battlefront II. These are some tips to help you go from rookie to ace.
Star Wars: Squadrons gives vibes of the 90s' X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. But is the wave of nostalgia enough to overcome some of Squadrons' faults? Here's our review of the recently released starfighting sim.
It seems EA has learned its lesson from Battlefront II - at least at face value. In an interview with UploadVR, Motive's creative Director has stated that Star Wars: Squadrons isn't trying "treat the game as a live service."
The much anticipated release of Star Wars: Squadrons is finally upon us, as EA's spaceflight sim releases today. Releasing alongside the game is the digital soundtrack, scored by Gordy Haab.
EA has released a new Star Wars: Squadrons CG short entitled, "Hunted" depicting a battle between the New Republic fleet and an Imperial dockyard on Var-Shaa. Star Wars: Squadrons is a space simulator that intends to have some fairly robust dogfights and an exceptional space-battle atmosphere.
We already know the ships Star Wars: Squadrons will feature at launch and with no (current) plans for DLC the notion of getting any additional ships post-launch is really just a hope at this point. But that's OK. Speculation is fun! If EA does ever decide to add more ships, these are some of the ships I'd like to see.
If you told me that in the year 2020 I would be getting a remake of Final Fantasy VII, a sequel to Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines, Baldur's Gate III, and Star Wars: Squadrons, a spiritual successor to the X-Wing/TIE Fighter series of Star Wars space "sims," I would've told you that you were absolutely full of it.
EA Motive's creative director Ian Frazier announced today during EA's Play event that the upcoming space sim set in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars: Squadrons will have full cross play.
