Star Wars: Squadrons will support full HOTAS setups

One of the things that’s turned people off of space combat sims over the past couple of decades is the decline of the joystick. When PC gaming was new, joysticks were standard equipment, and not just for flight simulators—old Sierra adventure games supported joystick inputs too, the advent of the FPS and RTS genres handed primacy to the mouse. Creative director Ian S. Frazier confirmed on Twitter Star Wars: Squadrons will have full support for proper control setups.

HOTAS, for those not familiar with the Way of the Simulator, is an acronym that stands for “hands on throttle and stick,” a design concept that enables pilots to access the major functions of their aircraft without having to take their hands off the primary controls. In gaming terms, it means you can map controls from your keyboard to your stick, so that instead of flying in a straight, flat line like a big fat turkey while you look for the key, you can do what you need to without having to break your maneuver or take your eyes off the screen.

We’ll find out more about Star Wars: Squadrons, including a first look at gameplay, during the EA Play livestream that will begin at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET on June 18.
