Star Wars Battlefront II Gets Updated Roadmap, Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker Coming Soon
EA and DICE have updated their Star Wars Battlefront II DLC roadmap, revealing when players can get their hands on prequel characters like General Grevious, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker. DICE is also promising a new game mode, location, vehicles, and more. Check out the full roadmap, below (click on the image for full resolution).
Hero Appearances, N1 Starfighter, and Hero Health Star Cards
For October, we’re revealing that General Grievous will don the Jedi Hunter Appearance by default. At Grievous’ release, the additional Battle-Damaged Appearance* will be unlockable with Credits or Crystals. The fan-favorite N1 Starfighter, a sleek example of Nabooian design and engineering philosophy, will now take to the skies as a fighter class ship in the Hero Starfighters game mode. Also coming this month are changes to Hero Health Star Cards, giving every hero the ability to equip one of these.
More Hero Appearances and a Small Update on Geonosis
In November, Obi-Wan Kenobi is entering the battlefront, and he’s wearing his Jedi Master Appearance from the get-go. At the same time, Obi-Wan’s Robed Appearance and another to-be-announced Appearance for General Grievous are approaching.
Here’s a neat little tidbit about November’s release of Geonosis: this new location will feature the native Geonosians as part of its living world (non-interactive environment). The Geonosians played an important role in the Clone Wars colluding with the Separatists, led by Count Dooku, to develop plans for the first Death Star.
No Game Updates
December will see no new game updates, as we’re preparing the Clone Wars content releasing in early 2019 – including a new large-scale, non-linear game mode.
Count Dooku, the Coruscant Guard, and Even More Hero Appearances
To kick off the new year, January sees the release of Count Dooku plus an additional Appearance for the Separatist leader. Obi-Wan is expanding his wardrobe even further with the General Kenobi Appearance, and the Coruscant Guard clone trooper Appearances are joining the forces of the Galactic Republic.
Anakin Skywalker and New Large-Scale, Non-Linear Mode
Anakin Skywalker, an additional Appearance for the same, and the 501st Legion clone trooper Appearances arrive to the game in February. You’ll be able to play with them in our new, large-scale, non-linear game mode featuring capture points and capital ship takedowns.
Not a bad collection of stuff, although it does feel like Star Wars Battlefront II is spreading its content a bit thin. This basically feels like one solid update stretched out over four months. The last major Battlefront II update dropped last month, and added the new Squad System, and various matchmaking and quality of life improvements. You can get the full rundown on that update, right here.
Star Wars Battlefront II is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
