Star Wars: Squadrons is having a bonus XP event this weekend. The players can now tune in and take advantage of the long weekend in the skies.
Star Wars: Squadrons December Update
- Two New Starfighters
One for the New Republic and the Galactic Empire each to round out your fleet. The latest addition to New Republic’s hangar, the A/SF-01 B-wing starfighter, was designed as the "Blade Wing" prototype by Mon Calamari engineer Quarrie and finely tuned under General Hera Syndulla’s guidance.
The opposing faction got the TIE/d "Defender" multi-role starfighter, straight from Grand Admiral Thrawn's brain.
The B-wing is categorized as a Bomber-class starfighter and the TIE defender is a Fighter. Each machine can use the components relevant to their faction and class, but they also come with their own unique aspects.
- Custom Matches
From community-run tournaments to being a real in-game feature.
Custom matches allow one to five players per side across two teams to play on any of the seven maps in both Dogfight and Fleet Battles. There is also some additional restrictions and modifiers that will help you fine-tune your game.
These include things like hull/shield/damage modifiers, changing capital ship health, restricting certain starfighters, and more. With this, there is also a custom matches server browser available so you can search through private matches made by your friends as well as public ones made by strangers.
