Consoles

The official press release has told us the game is arriving on Xbox One, PS4, VR, and PC - with Cross-play Support.

Cross-platform

Squadrons is the second EA game in the space of a week to be confirmed for Cross-platform, following Need for Speed Heat.

Will it be backwards compatible?

Backwards compatibility is set to feature in both PS5 and Xbox Series X, however to seemingly varying degrees.

The feature makes it possible to play old-gen titles on the next-gen systems, and allegedly increases the performance of the game when doing so.

We don't know for sure just yet if the title will be playable on next-gen consoles. We've certainly got our fingers crossed, however!

Pre-order

Unsurprisingly, Star Wars fans and others were quick to ask about pre-orders!

It would be a fair assumption to make that pre-orders will be available ahead of the release.

We'll be sure to let you know the quickest and best way to pre-order, the second we find out!

Gameplay

There's a ton of new gameplay features in the game, from dogfights & fleet battles all the way to different ships and their roles within the fight.

A very exciting element is the potential high level manouvers that can be made by advanced palyers.

Shifting shields, diverting energy to thrusters, and more can be achieved to pull off some show-stopping finishers!

Plot

One of the most exciting parts of the Star Wars Universe is the immense and expansive story.

We now know that the title will take place after the events of The Return of the Jedi.

That means - 'there is no death star', but there will be a ton of new and exciting maps to do battle on.

We can also expect to see some 'familiar faces' in the game, much like in Battlefront II we assume!
