“Star Wars Battlefront II” hasn’t hit stores yet and already a month’s worth of bonus content has been announced for the game with a special December event called “The Last Jedi Season.”
This special event will bring players new maps, weapons, heroes, vehicles and more.
On December 5, you will be forced to choose a side. You’ll have an opportunity to align with the First Order or choose to fight for the Resistance. Your choice is important, as it will allow you to take part in special challenges that will grant your faction specific rewards.
On December 13, your favorite stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the Battlefront for the First Order. They can be purchased with in-game Credits that week. Whichever faction is victorious in completing the most challenges that week will net a reward as well: a special Crate of high-power upgrades for Finn or Captain Phasma.

The Starfighter Assault map of D’qar will join as well, plus a new hero ship – Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing. Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
In Star Wars Battlefront II Resurrection, you’ll join Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order’s rise to power. This all new chapter of Star Wars Battlefront II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.
