Star Wars Battlefront 2 Progress Update on New Mode + Emote Wheel

Star Wars: Battlefront 2: Progress Update on New Mode + Emote Wheel

The Star Wars: Battelfront 2 team over at DICE posted a new Community Transmission:

To start things off, we wanted to talk a little about the upcoming, non-linear game mode since it’s been such a popular topic in the community.

Development is progressing well, but we wanted to let you know that we’ve made the very tough decision to move the release of the new game mode into March. At the core of this choice is our desire to keep the quality of this mode high.

It’s always disappointing when we have to move things around, not just for you but for ourselves as well. We’re incredibly eager to see the new game mode hit our live servers, but we also want to ensure that when it launches it’s the best state it can be.

However, this extra time is also allowing us to create two brand new reinforcements which we want to launch alongside the mode! You can expect full Community Transmissions detailing everything about the new mode as we get closer to its release, as well as a Community Update video that shows it off.

February is shaping up to be a great month with the release of Anakin Skywalker, the 501st Clones, Coruscant Guard and the Clone Trooper rework. We’ll be back information on all of those very shortly.



A long time ago in a Transmission far, far away. . . .we talked a little bit about our plans to include an Emote Wheel into Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II.

Emotes have always been a fun addition to the game and we’ve all seen how much you enjoy “Hello There”. The Emote Wheel will allow you to equip all the emotes that are currently in the game, the ones that you’ve currently got equipped onto your Troopers and Heroes. Whereas currently, you can only have two emotes selected, with the new Emote Wheel you’ll be able to select up to 8.


An early Work in Progress look at the Emote Wheel in action
The Emote Wheel is due to arrive within The Chosen One update which is set for February 27.

Charlemagne, signing off.
