What's coming next:

The Rise of Skywalker Update

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The next update for Star Wars Battlefront II is titled The Rise of Skywalker and as you might have guessed, it focuses on content around the upcoming, highly anticipated film.

So what’s coming in the update? First off we have a brand-new jungle planet. You might have caught a glimpse of this jungle like planet in the last trailer for Star Wars™: The Rise of Skywalker™. We’re bringing this planet to Co-Op in December, where you’ll be playing as either the Resistance or First Order as the conflict spreads to this tropical paradise. It will also be coming to Heroes Vs. Villains.

A new planet is great but we’ve also previously mentioned new reinforcements, and this month we have four brand new ones arriving into the game, split evenly between the Resistance and the First Order.

Joining the ranks of the First Order will be the Sith Trooper, a merciless trooper excelling in speed and advanced weaponry to hunt down and destroy anyone that stands in their way.

Alongside the Sith Trooper will be the First Order Jet Trooper that has received new training and jetpack equipment to achieve dominance over the Resistance . Achieve aerial superiority over the Resistance by using your grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle as you dodge, hover and maneuver through the air.

Taking up arms for the Resistance will be the Gunner and Spy unit. These are two new alien species from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Since the release of Co-Op, one of the big requests was focused around bringing new eras to the mode. This month we can confirm that the Sequel Trilogy will be arriving into Co-Op across the following maps: Jakku, Takodana, Starkiller Base and our new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker inspired planet.

New appearances are also on the way. Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren will all be receiving a brand new appearance based on The Rise of Skywalker. These appearances will be available to everyone who owns the Celebration Edition, and also for credits and crystals.

The release of this update is ever so slightly different when compared to previous ones. It goes live on December 17, with one exception to this rule, the new planet, which joins our planetary rotations from December 20.

Into the New Year

Jakku

It’s incredible to think we’re already in year 3 of the game’s life. With 2019 fast coming to a close our attention now turns towards what’s next.

In January, we will continue with Sequel Trilogy content as we will bring it to both Instant Action and Capital Supremacy. This includes the Resistance MC85 and First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer.

Rounding out January will also be two new heroes: BB-8 and BB-9E

We’re already thinking about February and March, and we’ll be back closer to the time with all the details on what to expect.

From all of us on the Star Wars Battlefront II team: Thank you for being a part of this journey and we look forward to seeing you in-game over the holiday season.

Damn that's a lot of cool unlocks it comes with. Release date is this week apparently.

Hopefully there's some kind of upgrade for current owners.

So will this most likely be the last big free dlc drop? I know it says content afterwards but can't imagine it being huge content.

Only one new appearance for Rey, Kylo and Finn though is a bit of a shame. Was kind of hoping we would see more variations, like hood up or down for Rey/Kylo and helmet on or off for Kylo. Maybe they'll add them in eventually though, fingers crossed.

Honestly, if this comes out on Steam and does unlock everything all the customization stuff I might just get it. I really wanted to get the PC version but it didn't want to grind everything back unless they bring in cross saves.

Wonder if this will get a Steam release.

I have Origin Access Premier either way. I should maybe give this a go once this new edition is out. Kind of avoided the game outside of some of the boring single player but I hear it's better now.

I just need that main menu update now- I want to ideally select which map I'm joining, or at the very least which era for conquest or Galactic assault.

This game deserves a second chance- it's really good! Hope this breathes new life and we get an increased rate of content.

I enjoyed the first one but wanted to wait for the second to get past its growing pains phase, so maybe this is the opportunity to finally get it.

Well heck, I just bought this on PC. I wonder if the new content/unlocks will be free for existing owners or if it will be an upgrade cost.

Isnt all the post-launch content free? Seems like they are just rebranding the game and selling it with a bunch of content unlocked for you

Probably a dumb question but can you play this offline? I got a Star Wars itch but I don't have PS+.

I too am wondering if there will be an upgrade path for existing owners offered
All this edition does is unlock all the skins and emotes. The base game will receive all this troopers, planets, etc for free.

The skins and emotes will be available for unlock through gameplay (grind) or with MTX.

Probably a dumb question but can you play this offline? I got a Star Wars itch but I don't have PS+.
There is an 8 hour campaign with a kinda meh story and several offline modes, though they're not as fun or feature complete as online.

They recently added "Instant Action" which lets you play a conquest singlepayer game with bots, but its only 5 maps, and only for the Clone Wars Era

The campaign is 7 hours of mediocre action missions/set pieces, but they recently added Instant Action which let's you play some modes offline on Clone Wars era maps.
See that's what I was wondering if you could use bots to play the game offline.

If you can't access everything that's a downer for me. Guess I'll pass for now.
