Star Wars: Squadrons

Game company EA has recently released a brand new update for popular video game Star Wars: Squadrons.

The latest update actually fixes several bugs that the game has been plagued since its launch. This includes the ranking issues and the flight stick deadzone that most HOTAS users have been experiencing. It also adjusted some of the visual effects in VR mode.

Check out the full notes below:

Release notes for 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

Controls

  • 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

  • Fixed an issue ensuring VOIP (voice chat) toggles work as intended
