Star Wars: Squadrons surprised a lot of people with its low price tag when it launched just a week ago. This led some to wonder if there would be extensive content updates for the game, given that it’s pretty hard to imagine a brand new title coming in at under $40. Unfortunately, dreams of new content were soon dashed — but while there might not be DLC in the works for Star Wars: Squadrons, there is a free short story to read.
The game’s short campaign follows opposing squadrons as they fight to secure (or destroy) a new superweapon that could end the war once and for all, cementing the New Republic as the galactic government. As a squadron, you’re part of a team of pilots who have their own backstories and personalities. We don’t get detailed glimpses into their personal lives, but we do explore them in-depth.
As a means of compromise, EA recently tweeted out a link to a short story that follows two of the game’s characters — Frisk and Keo — who fly for the New Republic. The story is called, “The Light You Bring,” and follows the pair of pilots through a mission as they discuss their place in the New Republic, and the galaxy at large.
The story takes around ten minutes to read and offers you more insight into both Frisk and Keo, while also providing you with an idea of what the challenges in building a new galactic government really bring. It’s an interesting read that brings some much-needed depth to these characters who are begging for more exploration.
While EA has no plans to release more content — sticking to its philosophy that games should be released whole, rather than in pieces — Star Wars: Squadrons leaves a Death Star sized hole in possibilities for the universe of space combat. The game executed its purpose so well that, once it’s ironed out, it could prove to be an essential part of the Star Wars experience overall.
Squadrons presented us with stories and experiences that we don’t normally get to explore in a universe dominated by Force users. Hopefully, EA relents and provides us with more space-fighting combat.
