If you like slower paced tactical games, you will love Squad. Squad is the “go-to” game for players who want a realistic war simulator where they can get immersed. With multiple countries to choose from, dozens of weapons and vehicles, you will surely have a blast playing Squad. However, the game is not available on all platforms.
Squad is not on the PS4. Squad is a PC only game that can be purchased and played via Steam. This means that the game is also not available on Microsoft’s Xbox One. While fans of tactical shooters might be hooping that Squad will arrive on PS5 and the Xbox Series X, this will not be the case. The developers are adamant about sticking to PC, at least for the time being. Their update roadmap focuses on improving the gameplay experience but not on adding cross-play.
Disappointed that Squad is not available on PS4 or PS5? If that is the case, you should keep reading to learn the reason why the developers are not planning a console release.
Is Squad on the PS4?
Unfortunately for PS4 users who love playing tactical games, Squad is not available on PS4. The game launched on PC on December 14, 2015 and it’s been improving via updates ever since. The developers announced that they have no plans on releasing the game on console, so neither PS4 nor PS5 users will get the chance to play the game anytime soon.
The reason why Squad’s developers don’t want to launch the game on console is because they have a really long update roadmap to finish first. Squad is constantly updated with new maps, weapons, gameplay systems, and vehicles. In fact, the last update that Squad received was so major that it improved the overall look and feel of the graphics. The game looks way more realistic and this makes it super immersive.

Is Squad Available on Console?
Squad is only available on PC. The game can only be purchased on Steam and from the looks of it, the developers don’t plan on launching it on console anytime soon. On the bright side of things, there are many other great tactical games available for console. For example, Insurgency: Sandstorm was recently released on console and it offers a super immersive tactical experience. The guns work amazing and while the battlefields might not be as big as they are on Squad, you are still going to have a blast.
Is the Squad Game Free?
Squad is not free. The game is priced at $49.99 on Steam, but there are many sales that players can take advantage of. In fact, the game is sold right now with a -25% discount. Considering the enormous amount of content that Squad offers and that you will more than likely spend hundreds of hours playing it, the $49.99 price tag is worth it, especially since all the latest Call of Duty and Battlefield titles are priced even higher than that!
Squad is not available on any console. That’s not all. It doesn’t look like the game will arrive soon on consoles, if ever. Luckily, there are some alternative titles that people can enjoy on console. I highly recommend Insurgency: Sandstorm for a similar experience. If you want to check out World War 2, then Hell Let Loose is right up your alley.
