Star Wars Battlefront II’s The Last Jedi Free DLC Detailed, Will Force You To Pick A Side


Star Wars Battlefront II isn’t even out yet, but EA and DICE are already spilling details about the game’s first DLC “season”, and it looks fairly substantial. The Last Jedi Season will feature content from the upcoming movie, including two new maps and additional characters, and, interestingly, will force players to choose between the Resistance and the New Order. The side you pick will determine the challenges and rewards you’ll get. Here’s the official rundown:

It all starts with choosing a side. On December 5, you’ll have an opportunity to align with the First Order or choose to fight for the Resistance. Your choice is important, as it will allow you to take part in special challenges that will grant your faction specific rewards.

Things kick into high gear on December 13. Your favorite stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the Battlefront for the First Order. Whichever faction is victorious in completing the most challenges that week will net a reward as well: a special Crate of high-power upgrades for Finn or Captain Phasma.

New locations and vehicles will also arrive. On December 13, the cinematic content from Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues with a new planetary map: Crait and Starfighter Assault map of D’qar, plus a new hero ship –  Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing. Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi .

The Last Jedi Season will also include a new single-player chapter to play through:

Iden Versio returns. In Star Wars Battlefront II Resurrection, you’ll join Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order’s rise to power. This all new chapter of Star Wars Battlefront II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.

Unlike its predecessor, all Star Wars Battlefront II expansions will be free. You can check out a full roadmap of all the new Battlefront II content coming in December, below.
