Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition is Coming December 5th
After several quality of life updates, Star Wars Battlefront II wants you back with its new Celebration Edition.
It has been almost two years since the more than controversial release of Star Wars Battlefront II. Since then, EA and developer DICE have tried to make up for their mistakes to players in the past with free updates and are seemingly doing that again with the game’s upcoming Celebration Edition. On December 5 Battlefront II will release the new version celebrating it’s two year anniversary by releasing new in-game content for purchase including appearances, emotes, victory poses, and voice lines.
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.
