Now inching closer to almost two months since the arrival of Star Wars Squadrons from developer EA Motive, the inevitable end of the road for the game has been extended. In that, the Montreal studio previously stated that the firm does not view Star Wars Squadrons as a live service and does not intend to treat it as such. The statement was interpreted to mean that no future add-ons would be added to the game.

However, it is now collected to register the title to be microtransaction-free with no future of in-game purchases and season passes. In theory, that does not rule out the possibility of DLC. The concept is gathered from a recent announcement made disclosing new content coming to Star Wars Squadrons, EA Motive announces.

The game studio shares there will be two content updates coming: one in November and in December. The first arriving on November 25, players will find a new map available to play – Fostar Haven. New components are also to be issued to respected ships: Boost Extension Kit, Ion Rockets, Prototype Piercing Torpedoes, and Anti-Material Rocket Turret.

For the second landing on an undisclosed date December, players will find two new Starfighters greeting them when loading the game. You can view an image of the two sips in the image below:

Additionally, EA Motive also presses that there will be custom games as well for fans planning to play on their own with friends. “Custom matches will allow one to five players per side across two teams to play on any of the (now) seven maps in both Dogfight and Fleet Battles,” the team adds. “These include things like hull/shield/damage modifiers, changing capital ship health, restricting certain starfighters, and other tools to help you change how you play.

EA Motive also reveals a custom game browser will also be introduced to search for ideal games when taking flight in the galaxy. Previously, the Montreal team offered that it is already working on the next project underway. However, it denounces the game to be Star Wars-related. You can read the full report by heading here.
