Star Wars Battlefront II introduces new The Last Jedi-centric content


A new update is out for Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now, just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s debut in theaters. There’s a slew of new content based on the movie, with new heroes, maps, vehicles, and even a story mission to sink your teeth into. It’s all wrapped up into a meaty 10 GB download for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and it’s available right now.  

Finn and Captain Phasma round out the new playable heroes for multiplayer mode, and you won’t need to spend any Credits to play with them if you’re logged in during the current Last Jedi season of play. You can put them to use across Crait and D’Qar, the newest maps to join the fold, which can be played in Galactic Assault and Starfighter Assault, respectively.

You can speed around said maps with a new ship upgrade for Poe Dameron’s X-Wing as well as the new RZ-2 A-Wing that’s been slotted into the game as well. There’s also a new epilogue in terms of single-player content, where popular protagonist Iden Versio makes a reappearance. It’s called Resurrection, and it spans three chapters. 

If you’ve been playing the game since its debut, there’s plenty of new content to hopefully help smooth over some of the issues that have surrounded the game’s handling of premium currency and microtransactions. You can check out the full patch notes for additional tweaks and changes.
