Star Wars Squadrons will support HOTAS on PC and console at launch

One of the best ways to fully immerse yourself in a flight-sim is by using a joystick or HOTAS set up. Not all games end up supporting these controllers but fortunately for Star Wars fans, the upcoming Squadrons will be supporting these peripherals for enthusiasts – on both PC and consoles.

Star Wars: Squadrons is coming out this October and will have single-player and multiplayer components. With Battlefront 2, the best way to play flying missions was often with a standard controller, but EA will be putting some additional attention to detail for Squadrons by fully supporting joysticks on PC and console.

EA had previously announced plans to support HOTAS setups for the game on PC, but for the last couple of months, it seemed that console players would miss out and be bound to their usual gamepads. That changed this week, with the game's creative director, Ian Frazier, announcing HOTAS support for PS4 and Xbox One.

Support for throttle and joystick will be patched into Star Wars Squadrons with a day-one patch.

KitGuru Says: Having a throttle and joystick won't be essential to enjoy a game like this, but if I've learned anything from Elite Dangerous, it will certainly help.
