Star Wars: Squadrons crossplay guide: how does it work?

With Star Wars: Squadrons, the new and highly skill-based spaceflight-'em-up, EA and Motive have taken a lot of steps to ensure that as many people as possible will be able to pilot the Star Wars fighter of their dreams, whatever equipment they're on.

Puyo Bock holds the secret to naming Star Wars: Squadrons pilots

I've never understood Star Wars names. On one hand, you've got perfectly normal blokes with names like Luke or Ben, and then someone will stroll on up and deadpan introduce themselves as "Dash Rendar" or "Wedge Antilles". It's enough to have you wondering where they come up with these names. In the case of one Star Wars: Squadrons pilot, at least, there's a good chance…

Star Wars: Squadrons has no plans for post-launch content

With most games that Electronic Arts publish these days, I tend to just assume that there will be some form of extra content or microtransaction lying in wait for me. I'm pleasantly surprised, however, to discover that's not the case with Star Wars: Squadrons. The spacey flight sim came out last week, and what we got was the whole package, because EA says they have…

Our Fleet Battles guide looks to straighten things out once and for all, explaining exactly how Fleet Battles work…

Best U-wing loadout in Star Wars: Squadrons

Support-class ships like the U-wing in Star Wars: Squadrons probably have the biggest role to play in any victory. Most players avoid these ships because they're slow and weak and you won't get many kills with them, but for players who don't mind the life of a support character, you can absolutely carry your team to victory by following my best U-wing loadout guide below.

Best A-wing loadout in Star Wars: Squadrons

The nimble A-wing is one of the Republic's deadliest ships in Star Wars: Squadrons, thanks to its agility and damage potential. Most Republic players I've come across tend to use A-wings in both Dogfight and Fleet Battles, but I rarely see anyone doing it right. Below I'll walk you through my best A-wing loadout for Squadrons, along with an explanation of how to play it…

Star Wars: Squadrons review

My opinion of Star Wars: Squadrons is all over the place. I was excited when it was announced, as I'd been yearning for a proper Star Wars flight sim for years. But then I reined in my expectations, because my bland triple-A release sense was tingling. I played a few hours of Squadrons as soon as it launched, and finished my session feeling a bit…

If you've not yet given the Y-wing a proper go, follow our best Y-wing loadout guide below and see what you…

The best Star Wars: Squadrons loadouts for each ship class

Whether weaving inches away from asteroids or losing TIEs in the guts of a space station, Star Wars: Squadrons wants you to feel like you're pulling off stunts ripped straight from the films. For one pilot, however, it wasn't the trench run that needed recreating, but the moment a doomed rebel pilot smashes his hatchback-sized starship into the bridge of a Star Destroyer. Turns out,…

Best TIE Fighter loadout in Star Wars: Squadrons

The TIE Fighter is one of the most recognisable shapes in Star Wars, and we were all expecting to see a fair few TIE Fighters in every Star Wars Squadrons match before it came out. Instead, everyone's playing as Interceptors and Bombers - and for good reason. But a TIE Fighter can still be viable with the right build, and our best TIE Fighter loadout…

Best TIE Reaper loadout in Star Wars: Squadrons
