Star Wars Squadrons has arrived and players are able to jump into the first dedicated flight-combat game for the Star Wars video game franchise for quite some time. The action takes place within the cockpit of a classic Star Wars ship, but some players might be wondering if you can change to third-person in Star Wars Squadrons view to get more of a bird’s-eye view of your ship and surroundings. Here’s what you need to know.
Third-Person View in Star Wars Squadrons
Let’s jump right into the answer and then explain what’s going on. The short answer is no, you cannot switch to a third-person view at any point in Star Wars Squadrons. You are limited to the first-person view from your ship whether you’re playing the game’s story mode, or competing online with a team against other real-life players.
This may come as a disappointment to some, and we don’t really have anything to say to you to make you feel better but here’s a few reasons why third-person view may have been cut.
It could be because first-person view is considered to be some to be a bit more authentic. Just like pilots from the movies, you’re limited to what you can see using your eyes and the tools within your ship in Star Wars Squadrons.
Along those same lines, if there was a third-person view in Star Wars Squadrons, it may have added an extra layer of challenge when it comes to balancing the competitive multiplayer as playing in third-person may lead to unfair advantages or disadvantages. A blanket view for all players was likely the easiest way to keep everything the same for all players.
That’s all you need to know about third-person view in Star Wars Squadrons. Sorry we don’t have better news for you on that front but hopefully you got what you needed at least.
