Star Wars Battlefront II Update Delayed by Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe is impacting every industry, and the gaming industry is no exception. The popular Star Wars Battlefront II was set to receive a pretty big update this past week. The anticipated Battle of Scarif Update (free) would be adding a lot of new content for players to consume. It was expected to add the planet Scarif to Supremacy and other game modes. It also brought Original Trilogy content to Supremacy. However, this major update has since been delayed. To prevent the spread of the virus and keep people safe, employees from industries all over the globe are laid off or transitioned to working from home. DICE is included in this, which is why the update has been postponed, but not canceled. “The Star Wars team have now moved away from our office setup and into our homes,” an official statement from the game’s community manager, Ben Walke…

The baby Yoda craze is real! And yes, we know “The Child” from the Mandalorian has not been confirmed to be Yoda, but you’re not going to get people to stop calling it that. But here’s some adorable news for you: The Star Wars Battlefront II community now gets to play as Baby Yoda, with the help of a mod you can install in your game. The mod was created by the user Nanobuds and turns the existing BB-8 hero into Baby Yoda from the Disney+ show The Mandalorian. It started out as a joke and originally only changed the BB-8 model to Baby Yoda. “I started this as a joke mod but it ended up being pretty cool,” Nanobuds said about the creation. “He looks wacky on the frontend- There is nothing I can do about this. I can’t change the animations to make BB8’s arm or wire go…

Star Wars Battlefront II – The BB Update & Age of Rebellion on the way

Here are the latest patch notes for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 INCOMING TRANSMISSIONWe’re back with more news and information on the next update for Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II. Back in December, we mentioned that both BB-8 and BB-9E would be coming to the game, and you also got a sneak-peek at them in the trailer we released. Known for his courage, BB-8 will play his part as an offensive hero. This will help balance out the light side, which currently has a support-oriented roster. With an Astromech joining the light side, it seems only fitting that the dark side should also get one. That’s where BB-9E comes into play. While BB-8’s bravery helps him charge into the battlefront, BB-9E is cold, calculating, and will play more of a support role, fitting in nicely with the dark side Hero roster. As January comes to a close, our attention turns to February and,…

You Can Now Play as LEGO Yoda in Star Wars Battlefront 2 (With Mods)

Tired of looking at an overly CGI-generated version of Yoda in Star Wars: Battlefront 2? Well, with the help of a mod by user Dulana57 on NexusMods you can change the character model for everyone’s favorite, green Jedi into a LEGO-style master of the Force. While the mod is purely cosmetic and only for Yoda, it’s still a nifty creation for your mod collection. The character model is well-made, semi-naturally fits in with the SWBF2 world, and is fully animated as well. On NexusMods this particular mod is titled “LEGO Yoda Mod”. It’s available for download and use now. Mods can be a great way to breath new life into an aging game. There are a few decent ones available for Star Wars: Battlefront 2. It has been noted, however, that, due to developer restrictions, that it has been somewhat challenging for even the most dedicated modding champions to create…

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Leia Full Nude Mod

It’s been 2 years since the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and we’re still seeing interesting mods pop up every now and then.

Yup, you read that correctly – with the use of a mod that just became available for download on NexusMods, players have the ability to traverse the sprawling landscapes of the game dawning nothing more than Leia’s birthday suit.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s The Rise of Skywalker Drops Next Month

Getting a little bored with Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and need a reason to keep playing or take another look at it? Well, December may very well be your best chance to do so. The entire month has been dubbed a “celebration month” by EA DICE and it all kicks off with the addition of The Rise of Skywalker content for SWBF2. The developers have been tight-lipped when it comes to what to actually expect from the Skywalker update, unfortunately. It’s probably safe to assume, however, that we will see the addition of some new maps and possibly a new character or two. This new content update is, of course, due out just before the theatrical release of the new movie – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The movie will hit theaters on December 20th and is a continuation of the latest series of Star Wars films beginning with…
