Xbox to feel force of new Star Wars: Battlefront II content

For $5, Xbox Live owners can add Jedi Kit Fisto, Asajj Ventress, and more to popular multiplayer game.


While Xbox 360 owners download the latest demos of upcoming games to their hard drives, owners of the original Xbox are still getting plenty of content to add on to their existing games.

The latest Xbox Live content download comes for Star Wars: Battlefront II, one of the best-selling Xbox games of 2005. On January 31, gamers can download a new helping of content for the game through Xbox Live. The pack will cost $4.99.

The two biggest additions in the pack are two new playable heroes--Kit Fisto and Asajj Ventress. To hardcore Star Wars fans, Fisto is known as the Nautolan Jedi from Glee Anselm. Casual fans will remember him from Episode II and III as the bug-eyed dude with the weird meat dreadlocks. Asajj Ventress, a sworn enemy to the Jedi who wields dual lightsabers attached by a fibercord, was not featured in any of the films, but became a commander of the Separatist Army in the Star Wars extended universe.

Also included in the pack will be four maps from the original Battlefront--Yavin 4's Arena, Bespin's Cloud City, and Rhen Var's Harbor and Citadel.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is rated T for Teen and retails for $49.99. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's full review.
