Star Wars Battlefront 2’s newest big-time update goes again to the perfect ol’ days of the Star Wars canon, and by that I imply the “Age of Rebellion,” aka the locations and occasions of the Original Trilogy and the time after the Old Republic fell.
Live as of immediately’s replace, The Age of Rebellion brings two new reinforcements (non-hero fight items, in different phrases); 4 extra blasters; 4 capital ships because the Supremacy mode ushers in co-operative play; plus two new maps for the Heroes vs. Villains mode.
There is a metric butt-load of different stuff within the replace too, primarily enhancements and rebalancing modifications for Heroes, some present reinforcements, and even modifications to the UI (together with some optimization of the PC model’s chat interface). Most of what’s new is detailed within the video above, however the Cliff’s Notes for the massive stuff is:
- The Ewok Hunter and the ISB Agent are the brand new items. The Ewok Hunter is the infiltrator unit for the cuddly fighters, who first joined the game almost two years ago. He carries a bow that has a goal spotlight much like Lando Calrissian’s Dead Eye means. The bow shot could be charged, and firing it doesn’t ping the enemy’s radar.
- The ISB Agent, I needed to look that up, however the Imperial Security Bureau has been a fixture of the Star Wars Rebels animated collection. The ISB Agent can be an infiltrator, twin wields twin pistols, and her particular means reveals the 4 enemies closest to her. More are added if she defeats enemies whereas it’s activated, as much as 10.
- Three of the brand new weapons return from the primary Battlefront (2015). They are the DL-18 pistol, the T-21 heavy blaster, and the Cycler Rifle (which had been a Star Card within the first game). The all-new blaster is the E-11D.
- The Heroes vs. Villains maps are set aboard the MC85 Star Cruiser (the Mon Calamari flagship, though this one was used after the Battle of Endor) and the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer (additionally from the sequel trilogy’s timeline).
- The MC85 and Resurgent Star Destroyer be part of the Venator (the Old Republic forerunner of the Star Destroyer) and the Separatist Dreadnaught (identical period) as Supremacy goes co-op with this replace. The Venator and the Dreadnaught are the primary two maps for gamers to assault and defend, with the others coming later.
- The places showing (in some instances, reappearing from the primary Battlefront) all through the remainder of cooperative play are Yavin, Death Star II, Endor, Hoth, Tatooine, Jabba the Hutt’s palace, and Kessel, from Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The full rundown of details is on the market from the official Battlefront boards. The replace is on the market immediately and, in fact, is 100% free.
