Disney and Lucasfilm have announced today that The Last Jedi writer-director will launch the fourth mainline Star Wars trilogy, replete with all-new characters and a fresh story. As digging for secret connections between movies and books and shows is the most favorite pastime of every single hardcore Star Wars fan ever, it'll still be hard to convince them this is something new.
Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens December 15, 2017.
But what we do know if players will be getting two new maps based off worlds from the up and coming film and each week you'll get a chance to try out special modes and possibly earn some unique battlecards related to the event.
Called The Last Jedi Season, this first season of additional content for Star Wars Battlefront 2 will begin on December 5th and carry throughout the entire month.
Players will have to choose between the First Order and The Resistance, and will unlock special challenges tailored to those factions. For now, read MMORPG.com's preview of the new DLC content HERE. Each can be purchased with in-game Credits that week.
The Star Wars actor went on to talk about a mind-blowing twist where Luke would get an evil clone from his severed hand.
Iden Versio returns. In Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Resurrection, you'll join Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order's rise to power.
Welcome to the new Star Wars. Poe Dameron's T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi.
While Rogue One wasn't quite the critical smash hit that The Force Awakens was, there is clearly a hunger among the Star Wars fan community for stories that reach beyond the families and characters that we've been following ever since Star Wars was released in 1977.
