Star Wars: The Old Republic adds a new limited-time mount to celebrate Star Wars: Squadrons’ free weekend

Do you like Star Wars: Squadrons? Are you indifferent about it but like having new mounts in Star Wars: The Old Republic? The latter game’s new promotion should satisfy both groups, because players who enter the code “SQUADRONS” into the redeemable code page will receive a free Corellian Stardrive Vanguard mount to speed about planets on. No, it will not allow you to engage in deep-space dogfights while you’re just idly running around, but let’s be honest, would you really want to? Maybe!

There’s no sort of additional purchase or registration necessary, just entering the code and riding around… although there is the element of time to consider, as the mount will only be available for redemption until January 28th. (This corresponds nicely with the game currently being free on Xbox this weekend.) So if you want to ride in squadron style, best to pick it up earlier rather than later.

Sweet! Installing now to claim it. I haven’t played in years, I still have a boost to claim that I couldn’t decide which class to use it on. I had leveled a Jedi Guardian to max back when this was a sub game and tank is so not my thing, and I never got around to coming back.

Are mounts account bound in this game? Can I claim it on any character and enjoy it on all?

Be more impressed if it weren’t just a re-colored skin for an already old and existing mount. A minimum effort on their part :(

The game would have 75% less mounts then! :D

I dont have the other versions so I am unsure if they have it too, but this one opens and closes the canopy with ctrl + Z too which doesnt have a practical use but its neat to see

It is a Corellian Stardrive model speeder of which there are already FOUR different coloured variants and all have the flourish with the canopy. This will be the 5th variant.

I see, I am guessing the other 4 are cartel market variants

Yup, all from different cartel packs, though a couple have been purchaseable outright in the cartel store a couple of times.

While I guess I appreciate their intent to offer “something”, not much turns me off a game as time limited rewards.
It’s a big psychological block for me with outfits, mounts, etc that are usable for finite days. Irl we don’t call those rewards, we call them samples.

“outfits, mounts, etc that are usable for finite days”

Huh? The only time limit is for using the code to claim the item on your account.

The code is limited time. At least in previous promotions, the mounts are permanent account unlocks once claimed.
