A lot of new content is on the way to Star Wars Battlefront II on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Ahead of the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, EA and DICE are kicking off Han Solo Season in Battlefront II, which will bring an assortment of new content to the game themed around the galaxy's most famous scoundrel.
The first leg of Han Solo Season begins next week, on May 16, with content inspired by the original Star Wars film trilogy. First, DICE is bringing back the Jabba's Palace map from the first Star Wars Battlefront, which will be available in Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and a new game mode being introduced during Han Solo Season: Hero Showdown.
Hero Showdown is a round-based elimination mode that allows players to pair up characters and pit them in two-on-two Hero vs. Villains battles. EA says this game type will require players to "bring out their wits and tactics," as they will have to pick a new duo to take into battle after each round.
Additionally, DICE is adding new Appearances inspired by the opening act of Return of the Jedi, including Lando Calrissian's Skiff Guard disguise and Leia in Boushh's bounty hunter gear. These Appearances can be purchased either with Credits--which are earned through regular play--or the premium currency Crystals, which were reintroduced in Battlefront II last month as part of the Night on Endor update.
Finally, the initial wave of Han Solo Season adds a much-requested mode to the game: Starfighter Custom Arcade. Here, EA says you will "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."
More content will arrive in June during the second leg of Han Solo Season. EA hasn't announced what new features it will introduce to the game next month, but it did tease that the content will be themed around the aforementioned Solo: A Star Wars Story, which premieres in theaters on May 25. You can find more details about Han Solo Season on the official Battlefront II website.
