Electronic Arts has released details for their Han Solo Season in Star Wars Battlefront II. The DLC is a nod to the upcoming movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is scheduled to hit theaters May 25.
Star Wars Battlefront II, of course, received mediocre reviews. Many outlets criticized EA’s use of microtransactions and loot boxes to make up for the fact that they would not charge for DLC content. The company has since rolled back loot boxes and implemented a system based on experience points. The game is currently on sale for $21.95 on PS4.
The new content offered in the Han Solo Season, which is free, includes:
- Revisit Jabba’s Palace – Available in Blast, Hero Showdown or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba’s abode.
- New Hero Showdown Mode – In this new round-based elimination mode, players will be able to take their favorite duos into two on two Heroes vs. Villains battles. Han Solo and Chewbacca vs. Boba Fett and Bossk? Yoda and Rey vs. Vader and Captain Phasma? Players will need to bring out their wits and tactics, as once a round is won, another duo must be picked for the next round.
- Dress for the Job – Players will also be able to don new Appearances (available for Credits or Crystals) inspired by the opening act of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, with Lando Calrissian looking scruffy in his Skiff Guard disguise and Leia Organa donning the bounty hunter Boushh’s gear and featuring brand-new voice-over.
- Refine Piloting Skills in Starfighter Custom Arcade – Additionally, we’re excited to add Custom Arcade mode to Star Wars Battlefront II at the request of players. Fans can hone their flying skills in the cockpit with Starfighters from all eras, whether the goal is to turn Rebellion X-Wings into stardust with a TIE/LN or hop into the Millennium Falcon to fly circles around enemy starfighters.
