Star Wars Squadrons has released and has been apparently doing fairly well on all of its platforms, but at the moment, it seems like the content on the game is all the content we’ll be seeing, according to a recent EA statement in a previous interview.
EA’s last published Star Wars game, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, had a very rocky road from the start, after the huge amount of microtransactions that were included in the game, sparking an uproar that led to the microtransactions being removed the day before the game was released.
It seems like now, EA is aiming to go completely in the other direction. Star Wars: Squadrons comes with eight different ship types and two different multiplayer modes, along with a story mode. However, it seems that the bare-bones DNA of the game is why it isn’t at a full price.
EA’s reasons for why there is no Star Wars Squadrons DLC are mainly that rather than drip-feeding more content as so many other games do these days, they were intending to simply make the game and put it out there as a small game with great value.
While it might be very disappointing that we won’t be able to pilot a B-wing or a TIE Defender in Squadrons, or see other game modes like a Death Star Assault mode, Star Wars Squadrons is still a fun game that can keep you playing for a long while as you unlock new starfighter parts and cosmetic items.
You can play the game on Xbox One, Playstation 4, or PC, and the game will be backwards compatible on the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X when those consoles land.
