EA has partnered up with the Epic Games Store to giveaway one of its published Star Wars games, that being the 2020-released starfighter combat entry Squadrons. The latest promotion will last for a week and replaces the previous Evil Dead: The Game and Dark Deity freebies.

Developed by Motive Studios, Squadrons offers a space combat experience set in the Star Wars universe. Both a single-player campaign and competitive multiplayer is offered here, plus full VR support is included too. Iconic ships from the franchise like TIE Fighters, X-Wings, TIE Interceptors, Y-Wings, and more are presented as flyable ships with lore-authentic interiors.

Here's how the store page describes the experience:

Master the art of starfighter combat in the authentic piloting experience STAR WARS: Squadrons. Buckle up, feel the adrenaline of first-person multiplayer space dogfights alongside your squadron, and learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling STAR WARS single-player story.

Squadrons usually costs $39.99 to purchase when it's not on discount. Here are the minimum requirements for jumping in:

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Ryzen 3 1300X or better/i5 6600k or better
