Star Wars Squadons : All the Details of Motive’s Upcoming Starfighter

After a few leaks last week, EA Play gave us the full details of the next Star Wars game from EA. Squadrons is being developed by Motive who also developed the campaign in Battlefront 2. After the launch of that title, they began working on Squadrons which seems to be a mix of Star Wars content that fans will adore. Let’s dive in.

According to Motive and EA, Squadrons is not a “live” game meaning it won’t be updated regularly as a service or with DLC. Rather, they are looking to launch a complete game that will contain no micro-transactions. Rather all unlockables and customization can be unlocked in-game.

If you’re someone who likes to get all of the bonuses in games, there are some pre-order skins to be aware of.

Our Take

After getting a look at Squadrons, we’re properly excited. The prospect of a short but enjoyable campaign while having a dedicated multiplayer mode sounds like a lot of fun. Being able to play the entire game in VR is a large bonus as well so we’ll be dusting off our headsets!
