Star Wars: Squadrons Details How In-Depth The Customization Options Are

Star Wars: Squadrons is a game that EA is hoping will become a favorite amongst the Star Wars community, with its consumer-friendly $40 price tag and bringing back a focus on the spaceship battles from older games but with online play. It's everything fans want but in a first-person perspective and they even want players to play their own way as they detail all the customization options, claiming that you can decide how "realistic" this gameplay experience is.

Because when you think of realism, you see starships fighting in a galaxy far, far away.

All my snark aside, the game's creative director Ian S. Frazier went into great detail about all the customization options players can fool around with to IGN. Players will be allowed to change up ship exterior and cockpits, along with every little minor detail in those ships like cockpit toys and the various holographic machines that appear in every Star Wars movie.

It was also mentioned that even though they're trying to make every customizable detail as realistic as it can be to the universe of Star Wars, Frazier knows that not everyone is going to like that and they can turn all those details off if they want the "realistic" Star Wars experience. Honestly, we're surprised at just how in-depth these customization features are sounding and we're pretty intrigued.

"Some players aren't going to want to see any of that. It won't matter how plausible it is, they just want to keep it to exactly what we've seen in the films, no more and no less, and we totally get that. And so we have an option in the game to hide everybody else's cosmetics. So if you flip that on, then all of a sudden, if you want to put a racing stripe or whatever on your own TIE Fighter, you'll see it, but everybody else's is just going to look like a normal boilerplate TIE Fighter for you."

We are happy to see all this effort being put into, what appears to be, a budget Star Wars game. It's a title that is expected to be complete upon release with no microtransactions and DLC currently planned for the game, which is interesting. Let's hope all these elements come together to create an awesome game.

Star Wars: Squadrons comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 2.
