While EA Motive, the studio behind Star Wars: Squadrons, said that their game would not be getting additional post-release content, they weren’t entirely honest. While there still won’t be additional maps, modes or characters coming to Star Wars: Squadrons, it looks like we will be getting some new content coming to EA’s first-person space combat game based on the Star Wars franchise. Announced on the EA Star Wars Twitter account, Squadrons will be receiving a few cosmetic goodies based on the Disney+ show, The Mandalorian, just in time for the second season’s premiere.

It’s nothing that will affect the look of your ship, but you’ll be getting a few keychains and figures based on items and characters from the show, including a keychain of The Mandalrorian‘s ship and figures of IG-11 and Baby Yoda. “We’ve worked with Lucasfilm to bring a few Mando-themed goodies to Star Wars™: Squadrons.” reads a blog post from EA. “The Mandalorian is something that has often been a source of inspiration for us due to its close proximity to our game’s timeline, so it only felt natural to pay homage to it.”
Star Wars: Squadrons was released on October 3. The second season of The Mandalorian premiered on October 30.
