PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers will be able to play Star Wars: Squadrons with a flight stick.
On Twitter, Star Wars: Squadrons creative director Ian Frazier revealed that players will be able to use flight sticks for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. It had already been revealed that flight sticks would be compatible with the PC version of the game. According to Frazier, compatibility with sticks will be included in a day one patch. He also thanked a number of employees for putting in extra hours and problem-solving in order to make sure that the console players will have the function.
In a tweet released yesterday, Frazier had announced that Squadrons had officially gone gold. For those who had been asking, he explained that a game going gold means that it has finished development and is ready to be printed and shipped.
Earlier this summer, it was explained why Star Wars: Squadrons was given a $40 price point. According to Frazier, this was done to help build up curiosity for Squadrons. He went on to state that he does not believe that the low price pint would would leads to a poor perception of the upcoming game. Frazier stated that he feels that not a lot of people have experience with flight simulators, and that he hopes the price tag would help those who would not normally look at such games give Squadrons a try. He went on to say that the price point should help encourage players to take a look at Squadrons.
Star Wars: Squadrons will release on October 2nd for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Those who have an EA Access or Origin Access subscription will be able to try out the game for free when it launches. They will then be able to buy the game at a discount if they wish to.
