Star Wars Battlefront II now updated with The Last Jedi content
With Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi now showing in theaters, EA has rolled out some new content for Star Wars Battlefront II. The free update sees Finn and Captain Phasma joining the front-lines, while a 20-vs-20 Galactic Assault on Crait and a 12-vs-12 Starfighter Assault above D’Qar enters the map rotation. We’re also getting three new chapters in Iden Versio’s single-player campaign, featuring secrets that tie-in directly to the movie.
“The Last Jedi Season” began early this month by having players choosing to represent the First Order or the Resistance, a choice that’ll supposedly affect in-game events as the war drags on. There are new daily personal challenges and weekly faction challenges to pursue, as well as in-game weekend events to keep the momentum going.
Finn and Captain Phasma are immediately unlocked for any player who logs in during The Last Jedi Season. Accompanying them is a new hero starship, Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing, and a skill upgrade for Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing.
The following weeks will see more challenges lined up for the community, primarily revolving around Starfighter Assault and a special holiday playlist by DICE to wrap up the year.
Here’s our review for anyone wondering about the game.
Star Wars Battlefront II is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
