Star Wars: Squadrons Update 1.1 Now Live On All Platforms

An update has been rolled out for Star Wars: Squadrons on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One that stabilizes the game, tweaks flight controls, and fixes bugs. The full patch notes are outlined below.

The meat of the patch is dedicated to bug fixes. One in particular centers on an issue found in the Fleet Battles tutorial mission where it would not complete if the player was destroyed at certain points during the operation. The update also addresses several other problem areas, including complications with V-Sync, Imperial squadrons being invisible during Dogfight’s opening cinematic, and the 3000 series of Nvidia GPUs defaulting to low graphics mode.

Elsewhere in the patch are adjustments to flight controls. This includes adding an option to adjust the deadzone for controllers and flight sticks separately. as well as tweaking the default input curves for flight sticks so that they feel more responsive.

The update also stabilizes the spectator mode in online PvP and implements other stability improvements and fixes.

In other Star Wars: Squadrons news, developer EA Motive Studios has confirmed that there are currently no plans for post-launch DLC.
