Since it’s initial rocky launch, Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been receiving continuous updates and support from the development team in order to help the game reach its full potential. Coinciding with the release of the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Battlefront 2 has had a great deal of content added this month with The Rise of Skywalker update and Battlefront 2 Celebration Edition.
The Rise of Skywalker update adds four new reinforcements: The Ovissian Gunner and the Caphex Spy for the Resistance, and the Sith Trooper and the First Order Jet Trooper for the First Order. While all these reinforcements are unique and viable options in combat, I personally enjoyed using the Sith Trooper thanks to its fast speed which can be further increased with the Combat Rush ability.
In addition, the brand-new jungle planet “Ajan Kloss” has been added to the game and is available in Co-Op and Heroes vs. Villains modes. Furthermore, sequel era maps will be coming to Capital Supremacy and Instant Action later on in January. This update also sees new Hero Appearances for Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren being brought to the game which were inspired by The Rise of Skywalker movie.
On a different note, the way you earn cosmetics has been drastically changed since launch and now implements a fair system which doesn’t stand in the way of your progression. Alternatively, you can get the Celebration Edition of Battlefront 2 which includes the base game along with every paid cosmetic, emote, and victory pose since release up to and including items from this update. This will supply you with 2 years worth of cosmetics which allow you to customize your heroes and reinforcements to your liking. If you happen to already own a copy of the standard edition of Battlefront 2, you can also upgrade to the Celebration Edition at a reduced cost for full access of the content aforementioned.
In terms of gameplay, Star Wars Battlefront 2 stands out as a fun, fast-paced shooter that keeps you hooked for hours on end especially while playing Capital Supremacy and Galactic Assault. The idea that a game with so rough a launch can make such a big comeback and keep adding content for years is incredible. Overall, the game finally feels complete with this update and is highly recommended for Star Wars fans who are looking for a great Star Wars multiplayer experience featuring iconic heroes and maps. The support the game has received is massive and hopefully future updates will continue being implemented to keep things fresh and interesting.
