Star Wars Battlefront II – May 28th Patch – Release Notes

The guys over at DICE have a small patch releasing on May 28 which aims to address a selection of issues that they have found, but also makes changes to the current milestone requirements for some of the appearances, including Darth Maul’s Old master. The Devs are making changes to the appearance milestone requirements, and instead of requiring you to defeat 5,000 enemies with a specific hero, this can now be done for any hero on their respective side. This means that for Darth Maul’s Old Master appearance, you will no longer need to defeat 5,000 enemies as Darth Maul, but as any hero on the Dark Side. Defeating enemies as a Light Side hero will be required to unlock the Luke Farmboy and Princess Leia appearances. As a team, they would like to give a shout out to those who have already unlocked the Old Master Appearance, the Force…

Is This the End for Star Wars Battlefront 2?

Things in the video game industry can move pretty quickly sometimes. And other times they can crawl like a snail. Due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe right now, we’re seeing unpredictable behaviors in our games, especially multi-player games. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is not immune to this. We already reported that the Battle of Scarif update has been postponed. Given the state of things in the world, this is understandable and that alone is not reason to suspect the game could be on the decline. There are some other concerns being discussed such as the favorite community manager stepping down from the role because he got a promotion and there’s been no mention of who the replacement for Ben will be. In this video, TheOzzyJedi talks about why he’s a bit worried about Star Wars Battlefront 2. Again, we’re taking longevity of the game. Of course, we know…

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,…

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.
