EA Unveils Star Wars Battlefront 2's DLC Roadmap For July And Beyond
"Begun, The Clone War has..."
After teasing new updates to Star Wars Battlefront 2 at the company's E3 2018 press conference, EA unveiled a more definitive timeline of when players can begin to see more content drops for the game. A tweet reveals that Battlefront 2 is getting some minor tweaks this July, before getting more major updates later this fall and winter.
This July, Battlefront 2 will be getting a new mode called Hero Starfighters. The mode pits two teams of four against one another in battles where players pilot hero ships, such as the Millennium Falcon or Slave I, in aerial dogfights. Battlefront 2 will also be receiving several game improvements as well. Jedi and Sith hero characters will be able to turn their lightsabers on and off on player command and using their laser sword to block blaster bolts will now consume stamina while doing so. For a full list of the patch notes, check out Battlefront's forums.
In August, Battlefront 2's large Clone Wars expansion begins with new clone trooper appearances. A few new emotes and victory poses will be added too. These Clone Wars updates will continue in the fall, with additional clone trooper appearances, a squad system, a new unannounced large-scale multiplayer mode, and the addition of Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous as playable heroes. Additional Clone Wars updates will arrive in the winter, bringing in both Anakin Skywalker and Count Dooku as heroes as well as adding a Geonosis multiplayer map.
In our Star Wars Battlefront 2 review, we gave the game a 6/10. Hopefully these new updates can improve upon Battlefront 2's experience and recapture the same levels of enjoyment as 2005's Star Wars Battlefront II.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
