As the theatrical release of Solo: A Star Wars Story is slowly closing in, Electronic Arts and DICE have announced that a new season of Star Wars Battlefront II will be the Han Solo Season. It begins on May 15, that’s 10 days before the Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The publisher and the studio revealed more details about the upcoming Han Solo Season:
- Revisit Jabba’s Palace – 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.
- New Hero Showdown Mode – In this new round-based elimination mode, players will be able to take their favorite duos 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? Players will need to bring out their wits and tactics, as once a round is won, another duo must be picked for the next round.
- Dress for the Job – Players will also be able to 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.
- Refine Piloting Skills in Starfighter Custom Arcade – Additionally, we’re excited to add Custom Arcade mode to Star Wars Battlefront II at the request of players. Fans can hone their flying skills in the cockpit with Starfighters from all eras, whether the goal is to turn Rebellion X-Wings into stardust with a TIE/LN or hop into the Millennium Falcon to fly circles around enemy starfighters.
