The December update will also bring Custom Matches to the game. This will allow players to create customized multiplayer matches, tweaking the number of players, which maps, capital ship health, and much more. The goal was to make community-run tournaments even better, and I think the players will love this.
Finally, the game’s Creative Director, Ian Frazier, sent out the following letter:
From the earliest days, Squadrons has been a labor of love for our team, starting with just a handful of developers whose fond childhood memories of flying X-wings and TIE fighters in other games inspired us to create something new.
Ever since the launch of the game, it’s been an incredible joy to see players around the world climbing into the cockpits of their favorite starfighters, immersing themselves in fleet battles, building squadrons of their own throughout the community, and generally just sharing in the sheer love of Star Wars space combat that has fueled this project since its inception.
Your enthusiastic support for Squadrons has enabled us to expand upon it further in all the ways outlined above, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m particularly excited about the Custom Matches feature because it will allow you, the community, to take more ownership of the game and create your own experiences for a long time to come.
Thank you for putting your faith in us, thank you for joining the Squadrons community, and thank you for helping us to make the game even better through all your feedback. And especially, a big thanks to those of you who supported us even before launch. It’s because of your backing that we were able to get a bit of a head start on concepting all this cool new stuff. You really did make a difference. Take care, and see you in the stars!
You can play Squadrons now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
