Arriving ahead of the premiere of The Mandalorian’s second season on Disney+ on October 30, the content will consist of eight cosmetic items players can unlock for free and use to customise their starfighters, including a Baby Yoda dashboard decoration.
Each of the game’s factions will receive one hologram, one decal, one dashboard flair, and one hanging flair inspired by the first season of The Mandalorian.
“Never say never, so to speak, but as far as our philosophy goes we’re not trying to treat the game as a live service,” he said. “We don’t want to say, ‘It’s almost done!’ and then dribble out more of it over time, which to be honest is how most games work these days.
“So we’ve tried to treat it in kind of an old-school approach saying, ‘You’ve paid the $40, this is the game and it’s entirely self-contained. We’re not planning to add more content, this is the game, and we hope you understand the value proposition.’”
The Montreal-based studio has undergone a rebrand following the release of Squadrons, which is its first fully-developed title since its formation in 2015. It previously collaborated on DICE’s Battlefront 2.
