Epic Games Store Offers Free 'Star Wars: Squadron'

As per the latest news story by The Verge, the Epic Games Store is now offering the space dogfighting Star Wars game for free.

It is worth mentioning that the "Star Wars: Squadrons" typically sells for nearly $40. But this time, Epic is giving it away for a limited time.

The developer of the game, Motive Studio of EA, debuted the space combat game last 2020. But it never really took off since then.

The Verge notes in its news article that the average online player figures of the game are a bit underwhelming.

According to the data from the SteamDB, the space gaming title only draws a few hundred players. Meanwhile, the all-time peak was two years ago when it hit over 36,000 players.

And as such, The Verge reports that some players complain that the wait time for multiplayer battles takes quite a while.

However, its number of players might shoot up this time as Epic is giving it for free from Nov. 24 to December 1. PC gamers could now get their hands on the Star Wars offering at the Epic Games Store Launcher.
