New Star Wars Battlefront II Update To Tweak Starfighter Assault Mode

Electronic Arts and DICE have scheduled a new Star Wars Battlefront II update for tomorrow, which is set to include a number of fixes and tweaks to the sci-fi shooter, including changes to the Starfighter Assault mode. This is only a small update, so don’t expect anything too major for the game. Full patch notes are coming at a later date.

New Star Wars Battlefront II Update Coming Tomorrow

The new Star Wars Battlefront II update was teased by the game’s community manager, Ben Walke, in a post on Twitter.

The last major update for Star Wars Battlefront II dropped in late June, and came packed with a host of character balance changes. Read our earlier story for more details.

Star Wars Battlefront II was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November 2017, and attracted heaps of controversy over its use of microtransactions. In the end, EA temporarily removed them from the game and re-implemented them months later, albeit slightly modified.

Despite the initial backlash however, DICE has attempted to keep things ticking over with a flurry of updates for Battlefront II, resulting in a more robust experience than what we had at launch.
