Playing in first person, you take the helm of one of 5 types of starfighters to take down your enemy. Play a campaign alone or engage with other players in Dogfight or Fleet modes.

Reviews

Upon release, Wes Fenlon at PC Gamer noted the incredible flight simulation but lackluster plot and lack of character development. He labeled Squadrons as "a game with memorable moments rather than memorable missions." While he had a good experience playing in VR, he mentioned single-player was better suited to VR as multiplayer mode can get more out of hand and nauseating. [2]
