Battlefront II: Celebration Edition and Rise of Skywalker Content Coming

-

Ahead of the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker content starting December 17, 2019, EA DICE is celebrating two years of updates in Star Wars Battlefront II (buy here). On December 5, the new Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition launches digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This edition contains the complete collection of customization content acquirable through in-game purchase from Star Wars Battlefront II’s original release up to — and including — items from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

For any new player, Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition is the ultimate destination to live out one’s epic Star Wars battle fantasies. You’ll get to enjoy more than two years’ worth of free content updates and get the complete collection of customization content.

The Celebration Edition retails at $39.99 and includes: the base game; all past and upcoming free game updates as they release; more than 25 Hero Appearances, including six Legendary Appearances, plus one Appearance each for Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, coming December 17; more than 125 Trooper and Reinforcement Appearances; more than 100 Hero and Trooper Emotes and Voice Lines; and more than 70 Hero and Trooper Victory Poses.

Existing players can upgrade their current version of Star Wars Battlefront II to the Celebration Edition at the discounted price $24.99 and get all the listed customization items above. New Appearances released on December 5 for the Clone Commando, BX Commando Droid, ARC Trooper, and the Droideka are included as well.

The Celebration Edition gives you the choice to look elegant, scruffy, or anything in between as you partake in huge battles across three Star Wars eras. Get boots on the ground in the Clone Wars, dive into the nostalgia of the original trilogy, and immerse yourself in the finale of the Skywalker saga with upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker content.

The Rise of Skywalker includes a new location, new reinforcements, and Hero Appearances. A brand-new jungle planet – that you might have caught a glimpse of in the last trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II.

The planet is coming to Co-Op on December 20, where you’ll be playing as either the Resistance or First Order as the conflict spreads to this tropical paradise. At the same time, the location will be available in Heroes vs. Villains, too. The sequel era locations Takodana, Jakku, and Starkiller Base will join the Co-Op rotation as well – with all mentioned planets featuring both attack and defend scenarios.

Simultaneously, no less than four additional sequel era reinforcements deploy on the battlefront. Protected by a striking red armor, the Infiltrator class Sith trooper of the First Order excels in speed and advanced weaponry to hunt down and destroy anyone standing in the way.

An extremely nimble Aerial Reinforcement, the new and overhauled First Order Jet Trooper can fly, dodge, hover, and even tackle opponents with the powerful jets. Use them to your advantage to crush the Resistance from the skies with a grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle.

A new “Gunner” and “Spy” unit will be taking up arms for the Resistance. These are two new alien species from Star Wars: The 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.

In January, you’ll be able to defend or bring down two new capital ships – the MC85 of the Resistance and the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer. The massive vessels will station themselves above the high-agency ground battles taking place on the new jungle planet from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Jakku. The same two locations are coming to offline Instant Action, as well.

Jakku, pictured above, joins the new jungle planet inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in Capital Supremacy.

Also, fans of astromech droids rejoice. The brave BB-8 joins the Resistance as a new hero character, bringing a fast-paced playstyle to the roster. His equivalent on the dark side, BB-9E, will play a support role for the First Order.
