Star Wars: Squadrons 4.0 Update, Trailer Released

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Electronic Arts released a new Free Content Update trailer today along with the release of the Star Wars: Squadrons 4.0 Update. The content update brings the addition of a new multiplayer battle map as well as the addition of two new Star Fighters and other cosmetic enhancements.

As detailed last month, a couple of content updates, including Squadrons 4.0, had been announced by EA in part due to the outpouring of inquiries from fans of the game for more content. It seemed early on when Squadrons was first being released that EA had little, if no, future plans for the title, at one point committing to the idea that no expansion or other add-on materials were planned for Squadrons, much to the dismay of gamers. After seeing the greater than anticipated level of support and enthusiasm for the game, EA released a next-gen console enhancement for the Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and announced more improvements coming around years-end. Well, the wait is over!

Watch the approximately 1 minute long trailer showing off the new Republic B-Wing and Imperial Tie Defender in gameplay action that were delivered in the Star Wars: Squadrons 4.0 update. The update is free for all players, and is out now.
