In its most recent update, Star Wars Battlefront II has expanded its modes and skins, as well as adding host of gameplay tweaks.
First off, the new game mode is called Jetpack Cargo; it gives every player a jetpack and a rocket launcher – chaos ensues.
There are new skins in the update as well; for instance, Luke, Han, and Leia can all equip their Hoth appearances.
All players will get two emotes for all of their troopers, with the ability to unlock more through play.
In terms of tweaks to gameplay performance, EA laid out the following on the forum:
“This patch brings a lot of balance tweaks and bug fixes to Heroes, Classes, Locations, and Game Modes. A significant tweak has also been made to Dodging. And for fans of Arcade, we’ve made substantial improvements to the AI to make the experience more engaging.”
There are also a number of changes to different characters, with speed boosts, damage buffs, and changes to certain abilities. For the full patch notes, click here.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
