Microsoft originally announced its partnership with EA when it revealed the Xbox Series consoles launch information. The service will feature EA’s large catalogue of consoles games and will launch on the same date as the next-gen consoles.
EA also announced that numerous games from the current-gen systems will be coming to next-gen with a series of enhancements, the recent Star Wars Squadrons included. Upgrades for the selection included higher frame rates, 4K resolution and improved loading times.
While the company has said that Star Wars Squadrons will receive no post-launch content, it did recently add Baby Yoda to the game, alongside a selection of The Mandalorian related cosmetic items.
