Star Wars Battlefront 2 Co-Op Update Out Now
The Clone Commandos have returned in Star Wars Battlefront 2's Cooperation update.
After publisher EA shared details of the new planet headed to Star Wars Battlefront II, developer DICE has outlined what else will join Felucia when it debuts in the game's upcoming Cooperation update, which is set to launch on September 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. [Update: The new Battlefront II update is out now for free on all platforms, introducing a variety of new content. Read on for an overview of everything you can expect next time you boot up the game.]
In an EA blog post, DICE confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront II will get a new playable character, two additional game modes, and a new look for Luke Skywalker alongside the release of Felucia this Wednesday.
The Galactic Republic's Clone Commando is equipped with the DC-17m Repeating Blaster Rifle that has an Anti-Armor Attachment. Commando's also have a repulsor mounted to their left arm that releases a powerful shockwave capable of knocking enemies off their feet. Their Battle Focus Ability replenishes health when dealing damage to enemies at the same time, while also giving neaby allies a damage reduction buff.
Playing offline against AI-controlled enemies makes an appearance in Star Wars Battlefront II in the form of Instant Action. In tow with this new game mode is Co-Op, a mode similar to Instant Action that lets you team up with three other players to battle the AI. Both are expected to launch on Clone Wars-era maps.
Finally, Luke Skywalker will get the new Farmboy attire set, the clothing he wore when first introduced in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Between October 11-18, Star Wars Battlefront II will hold a special in-game challenge to eliminate 150 AI enemies in Co-Op. Doing set nets you Farmboy Luke Skywalker. Also between the same timeframe, Darth Maul’s “KENOBI!” emote will be a reward for those who capture 15 command posts in a Capital Supremacy match on Felucia.
While details are still under wraps, DICE did confirm that more content is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II later this year. With Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker landing in theatres this winter, DICE said it has "content tied" to the holiday's highly-anticipated Star Wars trilogy conclusion.
