Star Wars: Squadrons Will Have A Hardcore Mode For Experienced Pilots

You'll be able to customise your Star Wars: Squadrons experience when the game launches later this October, allowing you to determine how authentic and challenging you want its gameplay to be.

This was revealed by creative director Ian S. Frazier in a recent interview with IGN Japan, who explained that when you start the game's story, it'll ask whether you want the standard experience or a "hardcore mode," with the latter removing various UI elements and forcing you to rely entirely on the readouts in the cockpit for navigation.

Furthermore, Frazier explained that gameplay elements such as starship power management will be relatively basic by default, but this can also be turned into advanced power management, allowing players to "individually manage pips of power from one system to another."

And if you're not big on customisation and being forced to view other players' ship exteriors and decorated cockpits, you'll also be able to hide these visual elements when playing games in online multiplayer:

"If you flip that [hidden option] on, then all of a sudden, if you want to put a racing stripe or whatever on your own TIE Fighter, you'll see it, but everybody else's is just going to look like a normal boilerplate TIE Fighter for you."

Do you think you'll go with the standard or hardcore option in Star Wars: Squadrons? Let us know below.
