Here's what you need to run Star Wars: Squadrons on PC (VR Specs Included)

Earlier today, EA revealed Star Wars: Squadrons, a dogfighting game from EA Motive which offers games on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC the ability to battle across the Star Wars universe within the franchise's most famous starfighters. 

Star Wars: Squadrons will feature both a single-player campaign and multiplayer modes, placing gamers in the aftermath of Star Wars: Episode VI, where the New Republic is on the rise and the Empire is losing its grip on the galaxy.  
 
PC gamers will be happy to know that this game features VR support, a feature which is exclusive to the platform. That said, EA could add VR support to this game with a PS5-only update, though this has not been confirmed. 

On Origin, this game has been given a £34.99 price tag, making this release much cheaper than most of EA's AAA library. Given this fact, gamers shouldn't expect this game to be as wide in scope as Star Wars: Battlefront II. Star Wars: Squadrons will release on October 2nd. 
 



On PC, Star Wars: Squadrons will have separate minimum and recommended system requirements for VR and non-VR systems. VR users will need to have stronger PCs than non-VR players, which makes sense given the high framerate requirements of VR headsets. 

For non-VR PCs, AMD's RX 480 and Nvidia's GTX 1060 graphics cards are recommended. These GPUs aren't high-end by today's standards, which means that most PC gamers will be able to enjoy this game with smooth framerates.
