The developer behind Star Wars Battlefront 2 has confirmed details on the next batch of major updates for the sci-fi shooter, including the Clone Commando as a Reinforcement. He’s ideal for taking on tough foes, and wields a reconfigured blaster that can also be used as a grenade launcher, which deals chunky damage to enemy vehicles and shields.

There’s also new modes including Instant Action, where solo players face off against armies of AI bots; you can configure various options, including AI difficulty, match length, battle point earn rates, and more as you attempt to capture Command Posts.
One of the biggest additions to Star Wars Battlefront II is four-player online co-op. This allows you to team up with three other mates in a large-scale PvE adventure across any Clone Wars-related planet. Meanwhile, October will give you the ability to select your faction and engage in a combination of attack and defend scenarios depending on the planet.
Finally, DICE is adding the Clone Wars-era planet of Felucia, which sees the clones and Separatist army engaged in a massive war. The developer is promising ‘new ways to dominate the ground,’ and hazards including mushroom spores that release deadly gases.
