Star Wars: Battlefront II has been one of my favorite Star Wars games I’ve every played. Although it isn’t perfect and has its fair share of lack of creativity and a few bugs here and there, it still is one of the most fun Star Wars games to date. Hence, why I try to play it every day when I get the chance. But as we all know, adulting prevents this much of the time.
Moving forward with caution, but this statement might cause me to be on next week’s bounty puck: I love Battlefront II just as much as Jedi: Fallen Order! Both are excellent games for their style of gameplay. Fallen Order is more for story and exploration, while Battlefront II leans more toward the realm of instant action and online co-op.
Since Battlefront II is such a favorite of mine, I’m happy to be the one to share some interesting updates coming to the game this month! Here’s the rundown:
And the best thing of them all is that BB-8 is getting a Thumb’s Up emote!
According to EA’s Release Notes, DICE will turn to the Age of Rebellion in a future update. More details will be given about this change later on in the month.
More changes include that the Original Trilogy will focus solely on ground battles, hence, why they’re creating a new ground-only version of the popular mode, Capital Supremacy. Because of this overhaul, this mode will be rebranded as Supremacy.
Another reason for the change is due to the addition of new maps including a fan favorite, Scarif. This new map is sure to be exciting because Star Wars: Battlefront’s Rogue One tie-in will be coming back.
Just to clarify, the new Heroes update will arrive next Monday on February 3rd, while the new maps and other additional changes will arrive later on in the month. This is exciting news for those who love Battlefront II as much as I do. However, I’m still disappointed in EA’s forgetfulness to adding new maps to Assault mode. Hopefully, they continue to bring updates to other areas of the game as well.
