You probably knew it was coming: a brand-new story update for Star Wars Battlefront II that takes full promotional advantage of the game releasing so close to a new Star Wars movie. Locations and characters from The Last Jedi can now be experienced in the game!
With this update, you’ll have the ability to play as Finn in the Rebellion, and Phasma in the First Order. No Credits required for either of them — you want ’em, you got ’em. Good thing EA’s blatant attempt at soaking its fans for cash backfired in their face, or we’d be saying something different.
In addition, you’ll also find two new areas in the game straight from the new movie: the planet Crait, where you can engage in gigantic 20 vs 20 Galactic Assault matches, and a space battle above the planet D’Qar, which offers 12 vs 12 Starfighter Assault fights.
Also look for Resurrection, a continuation of the single-player storyline that once again stars stormtrooper Iden Versio. All these things can be yours once the download finishes installing. The Last Jedi DLC is available starting today.
Star Wars Battlefront II is powered by three powerhouse studios – DICE, Criterion Games, and Motive Studios – and in partnership with Lucasfilm, delivers three times the content than its predecessor. Spanning all three cinematic eras, the game allows players to live out their deepest Star Wars fantasies as a trooper on the ground, an ace pilot dogfighting in space, and an epic hero dominating the battlefront.
Star Wars Battlefront II is now available worldwide on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC.
