PS4 and Xbox One players can look forward to a much more immersive experience.
Star Wars: Squadrons releases in less than a month from now, and it’s offering something that Star Wars games haven’t offered in a very long time, thanks to its complete focus on immersing players in its space combat action. Developers Motive Studios have talked plenty about how they’re doing all they can to ensure that the experience feels as authentic as possible, and recently, they made another announcement to that effect.
Creative director Ian Frazier recently took to Twitter to confirm that Star Wars: Squadrons will be getting HOTAS (hands-on-throttle-and-stick) support on the PS4 and Xbox One in a patc that will be live the moment the game releases. Support for HOTAS peripherals had already been confirmed for the game’s PC version.
Good news, pilots!
As you may know, Squadrons supports HOTAS (throttle and joystick) controls on PC.
I'm happy to announce that we're adding HOTAS support to both PS4 and Xbox One as well, in a patch that will be available the moment the game goes live! 🙂 #StarWarsSquadrons pic.twitter.com/cVbojAUknL
