Star Wars: Squadrons Technical Troubleshooting Guide

Rejoice, Star Warrior fans! The highly anticipated Star Wars: Squadrons is out now! This time, the players take on the role of not a Jedi, but a spaceship pilot, which is undoubtedly good news for all fans of flight simulators. The game is available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. Today we will focus on the PC version of the game, or more precisely, on its whole bunch of technical problems.

Crashes on launch, low frame rates, black screen – this and many others have to put up with a huge number of players who were eagerly waiting for the release of this game. The developers will probably fix most of these problems with a patch, but while we wait for this update to come out, let’s try to fix some of the game’s technical issues on our own.

The first thing to look at is the system requirements for Star Wars: Squadrons …
