Star Wars Battlefront II is getting its first major free update just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The launch of the movie also coincides with the release of the first major DLC for the game that adds content from the movie. It will also continue the single player story portion that was released at launch.
If you were hoping to get the new heroes with your earned credits, EA has confirmed on Twitter that these characters will be free to unlock if you login and play the game during The Last Jedi season on December 13th. If you are short on credits, it is best to utilize this offer since grinding credits can end up being rather cumbersome.
Star Wars Battlefront II has proven to be a controversial release and critics haven’t really given it favorable reviews as well. The backlash from both fans and critics has resulted in a rather lackluster launch for the game, but EA is hoping that the release of free DLC updates and The Last Jedi motion picture might drum up interest for the Star Wars brand since this also happened with Star Wars Battlefront, which launched alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars Battlefront II is available now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
