Star Wars Battlefront 2 Adds Rise Of Skywalker Content In December

DICE has announced that it will add Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s Rise of Skywalker content in December, coinciding with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in cinemas. Funny that, eh? No details about the content have been revealed yet, but we do know that November’s planned update has been delayed.

As a result, December will now see multiple updates released for Star Wars Battlefront 2, which DICE describes as a ‘celebration month’ for the sci-fi title.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 December Updates Teased

Writing on Twitter, Ben Walke, Star Wars Battlefront 2’s community manager, revealed that no content has been cut; rather, DICE has just moved some of the dates around. Having said that, November is still going to see some new content for the game, Walke added.

First of all, there’s a Fast Spawn option for Blast/Strike and Double XP Weekend, while Starfighter modes will receive a Triple XP Weekend. In addition, every Wednesday of the month is a Double EXP day. So, there’s plenty to tuck into this month, even if the major update has been pushed to December.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 came out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November 2017, and got off to a rough start thanks to controversy surrounding its use of microtransactions and loot boxes.

However, DICE managed to turn things around after a few months, and has provided a steady stream of updates for the game ever since. In short, it’s in a much better state now than it was at launch. EA announced last week that the original Star Wars Battlefront and its sequel have sold a combined 33 million copies worldwide.

The next Star Wars game on the horizon is Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which arrives on November 15.

DICE recently indicated that Star Wars Battlefront 3 is probably not going to happen anytime soon.
