The final Star Wars: Squadrons cosmetic drop will be arriving in early May 2021, just in time for the franchise's special holiday "Star Wars Day."
Star Wars: Squadrons is a space fighter game set in the Star Wars universe that proved to be surprisingly popular. The game was originally meant to have a relatively short life, but the fan's reception ended up causing the developers to create new content such as the two new ships that arrived late last year.
That update subsequently launched roughly a month later, debuting the new ships and the ability to make custom games. All good things must come to an end, though, and the final bits of cosmetic content will be dropping in just a few short months.
When is the Final Star Wars: Squadrons Cosmetic Drop?
The final Star Wars: Squadrons cosmetic drop will be on May 4, 2021. That's not a bad choice; after all, it is Star Wars Day, a fan holiday that uses the delightfully punny tagline "May the 4th be with you."
"The last cosmetic drop is planned for May the 4th, though new Operation rewards will continue after that. Keep completing online challenges through Dogfight and Fleet Battles to unlock them," read a Steam Community announcement from the developers. "We do ask all you data miners out there to not spoil these (surprises are fun)!"
That's all that's coming down the official pipeline, although Twitch Prime members will be able to get their hands on some exclusive cosmetics in March 2021.
For now, the Star Wars: Squadrons team is working on balancing the game in such a way that it has a long post-launch life for its dedicated players with minimal maintenance on the part of the developers. If you haven't yet jumped into this great space fighter game, you can buy Star Wars: Squadrons on Steam for 40% off as part of the Steam Lunar New Year Sale. Otherwise, you can buy it elsewhere for PC and console starting at its full price of $39.99 or your regional equivalent.
