Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Content Detailed For Battlefront 2
First up, there’s a new location available based on the jungle planet from Rise of Skywalker.

In addition, new Hero Appearances for Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are being brought to the game. They’re included for owners of the Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition or can be purchased separately with Credits or Crystals.
The new Appearances, Reinforcements, and Co-Op experiences will arrive through an update on December 17th. However, you’ll have to wait a little longer to set foot on the new jungle planet – opening up for all players to explore on December 20th.
