In order to celebrate the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new Han Solo season is being released next week in Star Wars Battlefront 2. The fun starts on May 16th so make sure to log into to the game next week to see all of the new updates.
EA revealed all of the great stuff via a press release that was issued earlier today. You will get to play as some new character skins and even visit Jabba’s palace from Return of the Jedi. Official details have been posted below.
- Revisit Jabba’s Palace – Available in Blast, Hero Showdown or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba’s abode.
- New Hero Showdown Mode – In this new round-based elimination mode, players will be able to take their favorite duos into two on two Heroes vs. Villains battles. Han Solo and Chewbacca vs. Boba Fett and Bossk? Yoda and Rey vs. Vader and Captain Phasma? Players will need to bring out their wits and tactics, as once a round is won, another duo must be picked for the next round.
- Dress for the Job – Players will also be able to don new Appearances (available for Credits or Crystals) inspired by the opening act of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, with Lando Calrissian looking scruffy in his Skiff Guard disguise and Leia Organa donning the bounty hunter Boushh’s gear and featuring brand-new voice-over.
- Refine Piloting Skills in Starfighter Custom Arcade – Additionally, we’re excited to add Custom Arcade mode to Star Wars Battlefront II at the request of players. Fans can hone their flying skills in the cockpit with Starfighters from all eras, whether the goal is to turn Rebellion X-Wings into stardust with a TIE/LN or hop into the Millennium Falcon to fly circles around enemy starfighters.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. Make sure to also watch Solo: A Star Wars Story which will be out in North America on May 25th, 2018.
