We've already heard how the upcoming title Star Wars: Squadrons will have a hardcore mode for experienced pilots. If that's still not enough, there'll also be hands-on throttle-and-stick (HOTAS) controls.

The good news is that this control method will also be available to console players, including Xbox One pilots. This was recently confirmed by the game's creative director Ian S. Frazier over on Twitter.

As noted, this feature will be made available in a day one patch when the game is released next month on 2nd October.

According to Frazier, the team went "above and beyond" to get this ready in time for launch day. Will you be making use of it? Fire off a comment down below.
