EA just revealed what’s coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 as they open up the game’s first season with loads of The Last Jedi content. EA posted the calendar of events in a lengthy post over at the game’s official site.
The season starts on 5 December when players will need to make a very important choice – fight with the Resistance or join the First Order. Your choice allows you to take part in “special challenges” where you can earn “faction specific rewards”.
December 13 is when the bulk of the content is released. First, Finn and Captain Phasma will be added to the game. Both can be unlocked using in-game credits. Also, a special crate containing “high-powered upgrades” for either Finn or Phasma will be awarded to the faction that completes the most challenges during that week.
Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing will also be added, while Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing will see changes inspired by The Last Jedi. A new planetary map and Starfighter Assault map will be added as well.
Resurrection will also be released on the same day. This will add new chapters to the game’s single-player story mode.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 officially launches on 17 November for PC, Xbox One and PS4. EA Access members can already experience 10 hours of the game on PC and Xbox One. Those who bought the Deluxe Edition get full access early starting 14 November.
Just when you had forgotten about the loot crates controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront 2, EA announces the prices for the games microtransactions.
