Star Wars Squadrons gets B-Wings & TIE Defenders in December

Star Wars Squadrons will add B-Wing and TIE Defender ships to its roster over the next two months, EA and EA Motive have declared.

The first Squadrons update will drop on 25 November and include balancing changes, tuning and some additional fixes. Moreover, it will add a new map in the form of Fostar Haven, “a fan-favorite location from the single-player story and one we’ve seen requested for multiplayer,” EA Motive advised.

The B-Wing and TIE Defender will be added in December — though an exact date is unknown at this time — and will also add balancing changes and tuning.

“Designed as the ‘Blade Wing’ prototype by Mon Calamari engineer Quarrie and finely tuned under General Hera Syndulla’s guidance, the A/SF-01 B-Wing starfighter makes its way into the New Republic’s fleet in this update,” Motive wrote.

“Naturally, there’s a fitting counterpart for it going to the opposing faction, too. From the mind of the brilliant military tactician Grand Admiral Thrawn and Sienar Fleet Systems, the TIE/d ‘Defender’ multi-role starfighter will join the Imperial Navy as well.”

Star Wars Squadrons is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4, also available through backwards compatibility on Xbox Series S & X and PS5.
