The first gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront II‘s The Last Jedi–themed seasonal event teases all the content in store for the event, which includes a never-before-seen character making an appearance in the event’s single-player expansion.
The trailer shows off an epic Galactic Assault battle unraveling on the game’s new multiplayer planet of Crait, hosting new speeders and redesigns of the classic AT-AT Walkers. Each side is being aided by the DLC’s two new heroes: Finn fighting for the Resistance and the recently leaked Captain Phasma for the First Order.
The trailer also reveals the first single-player content coming to Battlefront II, in which an older Iden Versio teams up with a mysterious younger hero to learn secrets about the First Order. We do have some ideas of who the new character could be, but not ones that could be discussed without spoiling the game’s story campaign, so we’ll leave it up to the community to speculate.
With The Last Jedi seasonal event now live, players must choose between fighting for the Resistance or the First Order, completing exclusive challenges for their faction to earn rewards over four weeks. While the event is already live, the new heroes, multiplayer planet, and single-player expansion won’t drop for the game until December 13th, but it will all be available free of charge when it does.
In other Battlefront II news, the game may not see the return of the microtransactions, which would be potentially at odds with previous comments by the developer.
