DICE has revealed what will be coming to Star Wars Battlefront II over the next few months.
The updated roadmap confirms that the long-awaited Squad System improvements will finally be going live next month. This updated system will add the ability for players to spawn on their squad mates in Galactic Assault, Blast, and Strike modes. 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps and 104th Wolfpack Battalion appearances will also be added for clone troopers.
Moving on into October will see the release of General Grievous, one of the four new characters announced at EA Play back in June.
Grievous will be followed by a much larger update in November that adds Obi-Wan Kenobi and a new Galactic Assault map set on Geonosis. This new map will include three new vehicles for players to traverse the planet with: the STAP, the BARC speeder, and the AT-TE. Rounding out the November update are new 212th Attack Battalion clone soldiers appearances for clone troopers.
The final major content drop is scheduled to arrive this winter and will introduce Anakin Skywalker and Count Dooku as playable heroes, the Coruscant Guard and 501st Legion as trooper appearances, and a new large-scale game mode. The developer isn’t ready to fully unveil it yet, but did tease that this mode is “a non-linear Star Wars sandbox experience” in which “two teams battle for capture points and to ultimately bring down capital ships.”
“More content and features are still to be confirmed, but we wanted to give you this advance look into what’s coming up,” DICE added. “Also note that things might move around, be added, or changed. That’s why we’ll come back in September with another look at the Roadmap, covering upcoming months in more detail. Efforts such as improvements on matchmaking, daily challenges, map rotation, bug fixing, and balancing are ongoing, too.”
Star Wars Battlefront II is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
