Console version Star Wars: Squadrons gets support for flight controllers

EA also supports the console version of Star Wars: Squadrons for joysticks and hotas set-ups; the combination of a throttle and joystick. It was previously known that the PC version would get this. The game will be released on October 2.

The console version will receive an update for flight control support on the day of release. That reports Ian Frazier on Twitter, he is the creative director of Star Wars: Squadrons at developer Motive Studios.

Only supported joysticks and hotas set-ups made for consoles. There are only a few manufacturers that release such accessories for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Thrustmaster has the T.Flight Hotas 4 and Hotas One in its range, which work with the PS4 and Xbox One respectively. Pedals are also supported; like the Thrustmaster T.Flight Rudder Pedals.

In June EA already announced that the PC version of the game will get support for flight controllers. The range of such accessories is much larger for the PC, because of the popularity of flightsims. The availability of such controllers has been under pressure since the release of Microsoft’s new Flightsimulator. Due to the popularity of that game many flight controllers have increased in price or poorly available.

Star Wars: Squadrons is about starfighters battles and includes both single player and multiplayer mode. The game has PlayStation VR support and crossplay across all platforms. The game will be released on October 2 for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Tweakers published a preview of Star Wars: Squadrons.
