Have you been busy playing Star Wars Squadrons this month? I know I have, and we’ll have a kick-ass review of something related to it tomorrow! However, until then, you’ll be happy to know that EA Motive has released Patch 1.2.
Patch 1.2 brings a wide range of bug fixes and much more to Star Wars Squadrons. There have been a few annoying issues, such as a black screen on the pilot customisation screen on PC, or blurry player models too. Of course, these are now fixed.
There’s also a good range of fixes that improve the stability of the game, reduce crashes, and general performance improvements too. No doubt there are still a few kinks in the game, and more patches in the future will address those, so remember to send a support ticket if you still have issues.
The game will automatically update the next time you go to launch it on Steam or Origin. Check out the full changelog below!
