For those who haven’t sampled the delights of Star Wars: Squadrons, the area dogfighting sport from EA’s Motive Studio, you could be to understand it’s available free on the Epic Games Store for the next week. That’s down from its common value of $39.99.

In case you missed it upon its launch in late 2020, Squadrons is a very good (and very hard) religious successor to the beloved X-Wing and TIE Fighter area fight video games of the ‘90s. However whereas its single-player marketing campaign is enjoyable sufficient, the true meat of the experience is in the multiplayer, which incorporates each team-based and solo sport modes. 

Which is why it’s a disgrace that the sport’s recognition hasn’t held up sufficient post-release to make sure you may get right into a full multiplayer sport everytime you like. There are a number of Reddit threads bemoaning the lengthy wait occasions to discover a sport, and SteamDB reports that common on-line participant numbers sit within the low a whole lot in any given week (although that is unlikely to point out the complete image given the sport can also be out there on different storefronts like Origin, which had a free giveaway of its own last year). 

So right here’s to hoping this newest free giveaway can present this in any other case glorious Star Wars sport the increase it deserves. Not less than earlier than Jedi: Survivor inevitably steals the spotlight subsequent yr.
