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.
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.
