After two updates, EA still haven't fixed the bug we encountered on the release day of Star Wars: Squadrons (PC), but you can check out the full patch notes from the Update 1.1

EA have released title update 1.1 for Star Wars Squadrons, and we instantly dived back in to check if the bad refresh rate issue was fixed. 

Sadly, it wasn't. The game still suffers from low fps bug if you set the refresh rate to anything above 59.94Hz as it did since day one. Here's our article  about it.

And here are the patch notes from the Update 1.1:

Fleet Battles Ranks 

  • Fixed an issue where players could not be correctly placed in a rank after initial placement matches 
    • Players who have not started their placement matches will be able to place normally 
    • Players who have started their placement matches will have their remaining matches use the corrected system 
      • There will be no rank resets at this time 


  •  Added options in the menu called “Controller Global Deadzone" and "Flight Stick Global Deadzone” which will allow you to modify the deadzone individually for standard controllers and Flight Sticks 
  •  Adjusted the default input curves for Flight Sticks, which should make controls feel more responsive 


  • Adjusted some of the visual effects in VR mode, specifically addressing the brightness and bloom when dropping bombs from your Starfighter
