Star Wars Battlefront 2 Update Version 1.23 (PS4) Patch Notes (PC, Xbox One)

Star Wars Battlefront 2 update version 1.23 is out now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. Here are the full patch notes for it.

EA DICE has released a brand new Star Wars Battlefront 2 update today for all platforms. This is the second update after the release of the Clone Wars battle map and Obi-Wan Kenobi as a playable character. The patch notes mention mostly bug fixes or quality of life changes so don’t expect any new addition to the game. This is likely going to the last update for this year.
