The Update Introduces a New Mode and Several Changes
An update for Star Wars Battlefront 2 launches today on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The update introduces several changes to the game including character re-balancing, general improvements, new characters and also a new mode called “Jetpack Cargo“.
The update launches at different times for each platform. Those times are listed here:
- PC: 9:00 UTC/1:00 AM PT
- PS4: 10:00 UTC/2:00 AM PT
- XB1: 11:00 UTC/3:00 AM PT
“Jetpack Cargo” is available for a limited time only and is described as a “fast-paced mode sees players jumping around in jetpacks wielding rocket launches for the entire round” by EA Community Manager, Mat Everett.
The update also adds new locations to the game’s Custom Arcade mode: Kashyyyk, Hoth, Endor, Crait, Jakku, and Death Star II. Players will also be able to play as Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo as they appeared on Hoth in Empire Strikes Back.
Some of the known issues with the game are also addressed in the update, though Everett acknowledged that not all of these issues were fixed yet with this update.
“I want to highlight that while some key Known Issues will be addressed in this update,” explained Everett in a preview post for the update, “a lot of them will not, the team is very much working to address them, and we hope to bring that list to zero items in the near future.”
