The latest Star Wars: Squadrons update adds 120fps, only to Xbox Series X|S.

EA’s recent update for Star Wars: Squadrons added increased performance support for Xbox Series X|S. While PlayStation 5 users will be missing out on this. Furthermore, this patch includes a graphics and resolution update as well, allowing players 4k gameplay.

Star Wars: Squadron also got a map for multiplayer, Fostar Haven. This is not a new map as this map is a stage in the single-player mode. Players will be able to play Dogfight and Fleet Battle in both co-op and solo in the added map.

Even though the developers have stated earlier that, Star Wars: Squadrons will be released as a complete package and we should not expect post-launch additions. But, the positive receptions from fans such as asking for more fighter models and maps, allowed the devs to change their minds. Hence the game is doing pretty well and garnered an eager community.

On the other hand, this update brings some quality of life changes by removing some bugs and changing the UI. In addition to variable frame rate support.

Next-gen console owners are getting major graphical updates, so be ready for some big download sizes. While PlayStation 5 owners will receive the visual and resolution update, Xbox Series X|S owners will be able to play Star Wars: Squadrons on smooth 120fps.

Players will be able to choose between a performance mode where the game will run 120fps and a visual mode where it will offer 4k. But, at least as of now, this option is exclusive to Xbox Series X|S.

Nevertheless, the game is a blast to play. Especially with friends, flying soaring the vast space and classic planets of this cult-classic franchise.
