Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Content is Making Its Way to Star Wars Battlefront II
Starting December 17 (Available Now), is the next free update*** available to all Star Wars Battlefront II players is titled The Rise of Skywalker and focuses on content inspired by the upcoming, highly anticipated film.
A brand-new jungle planet – that you might have caught a glimpse of in the last trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II!
This planet has been added to Co-Op, where you’ll be playing as either the Resistance or First Order as the conflict spreads to this tropical paradise. At the same time, the location will be available in Heroes vs. Villains, too. The sequel era locations Takodana, Jakku, and Starkiller Base will join the Co-Op rotation as well – with all mentioned planets featuring both attack and defend scenarios.
Simultaneously, no less than four additional sequel era reinforcements deploy on the battlefront! Protected by a striking red armor, the Infiltrator class Sith trooper of the First Order excels in speed and advanced weaponry to hunt down and destroy anyone standing in the way.
An extremely nimble Aerial Reinforcement, the new and overhauled First Order Jet Trooper can fly, dodge, hover, and even tackle opponents with the powerful jets. Use them to your advantage to crush the Resistance from the skies with a grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle!
A new “Gunner” and “Spy” unit will be taking up arms for the Resistance. These are two new alien species from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Hero Appearances – Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren
In addition, new Hero Appearances for Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are being brought to the game. They’re included for owners of the Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition or can be purchased separately with Credits or Crystals.
The new Appearances, Reinforcements, and Co-Op experiences will arrive through an update on December 17. However, you’ll have to wait a little longer to set foot on the new jungle planet – opening up for all players to explore on December 20.
January Brings Sequel Trilogy Capital Supremacy and Two New Heroes
In January, the Capital Supremacy will be coming to the sequel era! That means two new capital ships to defend or bring down – the MC85 of the Resistance and the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer. The massive vessels will station themselves above the high-agency ground battles taking place on the new jungle planet from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Jakku. The same two locations are coming to offline Instant Action, as well.
Jakku, pictured above, joins the new jungle planet inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in Capital Supremacy.
Also, fans of astromech droids rejoice (seriously, who isn’t a fan of astromech droids?) The brave BB-8 joins the Resistance as a new hero character, bringing a fast-paced playstyle to the roster. His equivalent on the dark side, BB-9E, will play a support role for the First Order.
In the new year, EA will be back to touch base on what’s in store for February and March. Until then – May the Force be With You, and see you on the battlefront!
