Plenty of new content is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II next week with the beginning of Season 2.

Star Wars Battlefront II Season 2 content, which will be available from May 16th, will be focused on Han Solo, with quests and challenges inspired by the character and his closest friends. Additionally, a new mode called Hero Showdown will be launched, alongside Starfighter Custom Arcade and Jabba's Palace

Xbox Game Pass Adds Psychonauts 2, Humankind, and More in Late August

Hero Showdown

Alongside The Han Solo Season will be the release of a brand new game mode. Hero Showdown is similar to the much-loved Heroes vs Villains Game Mode, but with a brand-new rule set.

In this 2v2 game mode, players will begin the match by picking their Heroes. Should you be defeated you must put all your hope into your teammate and wait until the round is over.

If your team is successful and wins the round, you are unable to use the Heroes that you previously used. However, if your team loses the round you're free to pick any available Hero, including the ones you've just used.

It's a best out of five situation, so the first to win three rounds will claim victory. Think carefully about your pick, strategy is everything in this mode.

Starfighter Custom Arcade Starfighter Custom Arcade is where you’ll be able to become acquainted with all the Starfighters in the game. Take on AI and learn skills that will serve you well when you venture into Starfighter Assault and take on some of the best pilots in the galaxy. We know that this is something a lot of our community have been requesting so we’re incredibly excited to confirm that it’ll be available as soon as Season Two starts on May 16.

Jabba’s Palace Located in the Dune Sea on Tatooine, this sandblasted metal and stone structure strikes fear into anyone that finds themselves on the wrong side of Jabba the Hutt. Jabba’s Palace will be arriving in Star Wars Battlefront II and will be available in both Heroes vs Villains, Blast, and Arcade.

The beginning of the new season will also bring the introduction of quality of life changes such as improved menus and new milestones, such as Score Milestones for each Trooper, Hero, and Specials. Troopers will receive three tiers, while Heroes and Specials will have two new tiers. More information on Season 2 can be found by going here.
