Star Wars Battlefront 2’s latest update adds new content inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits theaters on Dec. 15.
Star Wars fans can expect to play two new heroes, including Finn and commanding officer of the First Order, Captain Phasma. Finn will do what he can to protect his allies, go into battle, and destroy any enemies who get in his way. Captain Phasma uses every skill to gain victory.
You’ll also be able to join battles inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including Galactic Assault on Crait and Starfighter Assault above D’Qar. A new heroic starfighter, Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing, also joins Starfighter Assault.
“Not sure who – or what – that is?”, EA wrote in a blog post. “Don’t worry, you’ll know more after seeing Star Wars The Last Jedi. You’ll also see Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing, which is also getting an upgrade in Starfighter Assault with a new ability inspired by the movie.”
In addition, the Star Wars Battlefront II update also brings two new maps, a new vehicle, and a free campaign DLC called Resurrection that adds three new chapters to the story.
Battlefront 2 Update: New Map & Campaign Details
NEW CAMPAIGN DLC: RESURRECTION
Iden Versio is back in the Resurrection DLC! She is searching for answers, while the secrets of a First Order conspiracy are revealed. This DLC contains three new campaign chapters that continue Iden’s saga in the Star Wars universe.
NEW MAP: CRAIT (Galactic Assault)
On the mineral planet Crait, the First Order has trapped a group of Resistance fighters at what was once a Rebel Alliance outpost. You’ll see the First Order escorting the massive AT-M6 while Resistance fighters in ski-speeders attempt to stop them.
NEW MAP: D’QAR (Starfighter Assault)
As you recall from The Force Awakens, D’Qar is the principal base of the Resistance. Now experience an incredible space battle over that planet as the First Order attacks, threatening to wipe out the base, and the Resistance, once and for all.
HERO SHIP AND HERO SHIP UPGRADE
To spice up the space battle, a new hero ship has launched – Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing. For Poe Dameron, there is a new hero ship upgrade for his T-70 X-wing.
Star Wars Battlefront 2’s Patch 1.0 is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
