Star Wars Battlefront II: The Han Solo Season Begins Next Week
Star Wars Battlefront II is quickly approaching its second season, and it will be featuring our favorite scruffy scoundrel: Han Solo. Just in time for the theatrical release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the second season of the DICE game will contain loads of content spread out over two months, with plenty of throwbacks to the original trilogy of Star Wars films. Here’s the breakdown of the new features and content coming in season II:
Star Wars Battlefront II: The Han Solo Season
- Revisit Jabba’s Palace – What happens when you don’t pay a Hutt on time? You end up as an accent piece in his throne room… a lesson Han Solo learned the hard way. This month, fans of Star Wars Battlefront can revisit Jabba’s Palace in Star Wars Battlefront II as part of The Han Solo Season. Available in Blast, Hero Showdown, or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba’s abode.
- Dress for the Job – We figure if we’re sending you all the way to Tatooine, you might as well be able to dress for the part. Don new Appearances (available for Credits or Crystals) inspired by the opening act of Star Wars™: Return of the Jedi™, with Lando Calrissian looking scruffy in his Skiff Guard disguise and Leia Organa donning the bounty hunter Boushh’s gear and featuring brand-new voice-over.
- New Mode – Hero Showdown -Han Solo’s rarely seen without the mighty Chewbacca at his side, and in Hero Showdown – a new round-based elimination mode in The Han Solo Season – you’ll be able to take your favorite pairings into two-on-two Heroes vs. Villains battles. Han Solo and Chewbacca vs. Boba Fett and Bossk? Yoda and Rey vs. Vader and Captain Phasma? That’s up to you, but once a round is won, you must pick another duo for the next round. Bring out your wits and tactics for this one.
- Refine Your Piloting Skills in Starfighter Custom Arcade – No need to fly casual; you’ve asked for it, and we’re excited to add Starfighter Custom Arcade to Star Wars Battlefront II. You’ll be able to hone your skills in the cockpit with Starfighters from all eras, whether you’re aiming to turn Rebellion X-wings into stardust with your TIE/LN or hop into the Millennium Falcon to fly circles around enemy starfighters.
DICE plans on releasing even more info on what’s to come after Solo: A Star Wars Story is released. Star Wars Battlefront II: The Han Solo Season begins on May 16, 2018. Star Wars Battlefront II is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
