Next week's Star Wars Battlefront 2 update drops on Jan 30. We're making some balance changes to Anakin and Palpatine. Auto Players can now hit with melee attacks, and we fixed the issue that allowed them to shoot when they should be immobile. Droideka also gets a small buff.

Not much else has been said so far, but we should expect detailed update notes shortly before the update goes live next week.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 had a very rough launch, but things have been improved considerably since. The game also received a new edition, called Celebration Edition, which delivers instant access to all the content that can be unlocked with Credits or Crystals.

The Celebration Edition will deliver instant access to every Hero Appearance, Trooper Appearance, Emote, Voice Line and Victory Pose available in Star Wars Battlefront II that can be unlocked with Credits or Crystals, including new content coming in December with our The Rise of Skywalker Update. Simply head on over to the collection menu and they’ll be ready and waiting.
