Squadrons VR Support Confirmed By EA

EA will reveal gameplay for Star Wars: Squadrons at present, its upcoming 5v5 area fighter that can function full VR help, throughout its EA Play stream. The stream begins at 4PM PT, you’ll be able to watch right here as soon as it begins or over on EA’s Twitch.

We’re excited to be taught extra about Star Wars: Squadrons which is out on October 2nd this yr and confirmed to be totally playable in VR on PC and PSVR with HOTAS and cross-play help. That’s quite a bit to absorb however there’s additionally much more to be taught. The sport can also be listed by EA as “PSVR or Oculus beneficial” regardless of Steam itemizing Index, Vive, and Rift help for the sport. In different phrases, we don’t know precisely why that advice is being made by EA. We’ve reached out to ask and hope to be taught much more within the stream at present.

It is a stretch to convey up since there’s zero data at this level, however is it doable Fb paid for a port to Oculus Quest, or will in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later? And even when Fb does find yourself coughing up that cash, how doubtless is it that a Quest model can be set to launch in 2020 and never lengthy after preliminary launch? Porting content material to Quest is a monumental enterprise and a few titles must make sacrifices that would strip out a few of what makes a VR recreation work nicely on a high-powered PC system.

So whereas we’d like to see an area shooter like Star Wars: Squadrons on the standalone Quest headset (and the sport is more likely to work on Quest by way of PC over Oculus Hyperlink already), additionally it is a really tall order.

The stream kicks off at four pm Pacific time at present on EA.com and is anticipated to be proven on the corporate’s Twitch as nicely with a full showcase of all upcoming EA video games — most of that are non-VR.

We don’t know precisely when Star Wars: Squadrons will seem within the showcase, or if they may truly present any VR footage, however gameplay of some type is confirmed to be taking place for certain and we’ll have all the most recent particulars right here on UploadVR.com.
