Following its release, there will be a free update adding new content based on the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. Players will be able to play co-op plus heroes vs. villains mode on an (as of now) unknown jungle planet from the film. Additionally, there will be two new classes to choose from for both the Resistance as well as the First Order. The Resistance will be receiving a gunner and spy class which will apparently feature two new alien species from The Rise of Skywalker. The First Order will get the Infiltrator class Sith trooper that dons a red suit of armor instead of the iconic white and the Jet trooper that play in an aerial reinforcement role. Lastly, Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren will get a new appearance based on their designs from the film that will be automatically included for adopters of the Celebration Edition.
In January, Capital Supremacy mode will be added on all mode maps of the sequel era (Episode VII, VIII, IX) as well as bringing in two new heroes. Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition releases digitally December 5 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC for $39.99 if you don’t already own the game. If you already do then you can purchase the Celebration Edition for a discounted price of $24.99.
Celebrate what exactly? Have people forgotten what shit EA was willing to pull with BF II. BF II is the game that pushed micro transaction discussion into the mainstream. Even politicians got involved.
