With a new map set on a jungle planet inspired by the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will see the Resistance go up against the First Order. As a free update to all players it goes live December 20 alongside the introduction of new units - as highlighted in the cinematic trailer.

Check it out.


New Location

A brand-new jungle planet – that you might have caught a glimpse of in the last trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II!

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. At the same time, the location will be available in Heroes vs. Villains, too. The sequel era locations Takodana, Jakku, and Starkiller Base will join the Co-Op rotation as well – with all mentioned planets featuring both attack and defend scenarios.

New Reinforcements

Simultaneously, no less than four additional sequel era reinforcements deploy on the battlefront! Protected by a striking red armor, the Infiltrator class Sith trooper of the First Order excels in speed and advanced weaponry to hunt down and destroy anyone standing in the way.

An extremely nimble Aerial Reinforcement, the new and overhauled First Order Jet Trooper can fly, dodge, hover, and even tackle opponents with the powerful jets. Use them to your advantage to crush the Resistance from the skies with a grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle!

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

Hero Appearances – Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren

In addition, new Hero Appearances for Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are being brought to the game. They’re included for owners of the Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition or can be purchased separately with Credits or Crystals.

The new Appearances, Reinforcements, and Co-Op experiences will arrive through an update on December 17. However, you’ll have to wait a little longer to set foot on the new jungle planet – opening up for all players to explore on December 20.

And in what is a very weird move, BB-8 is set to become a playable character in January. But, this update is free to all players and part of the new Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition which packages all the customisation content for the game released to date.
