The Road Ahead and Improving Transparency
Ahead of the Clone Wars content drops, we’re still committed to delivering regular updates, events, and fixes to Star Wars Battlefront II. This will include quality-of-life updates and new ways to play the game.
Coming in July is a new Starfighter mode focused on piloting Hero ships. We’re pleased with the positive response we had on this season’s Hero Showdown, and believe players will appreciate this similar, more focused, approach to Hero Starfighter battles.
Here, players will spawn as one of the available Hero Starfighters on their respective sides. If taken out, you’ll re-enter the game as a normal fighter, bomber, or interceptor. To win the game, your team of four needs to take out all enemy Hero Starfighters.
And later this year, we’ll introduce a non-linear, larger-scale mode where players battle for control of objectives around the map. We’re also bringing changes to how squads will work, including spawning on squad mates.
And this is just a start.
In an effort to improve upon our transparency, we’re going to provide a more detailed Roadmap on what’s ahead for Star Wars Battlefront II. We’ll be able to share this with you after we’ve rounded up the Han Solo Season, in the end of June.
What do you think of all of these updates?
