We're all familiar with Dennis Brännvall at this point, the DICE developer who consistently updates fans when the rest of the team remains regrettably silent.
On a recent forum post, the Design Director confirmed that both Clone Wars content and customisation options are coming to Battlefront II, while clarifying Conquest mode was under consideration.
"We're obviously hearing the requests about a more open, free-flowing large mode like Conquest", Brännvall said. "Not sure if porting a mode over is the right way to go, but we're definitely working on satisfying that request."
Somewhere else, he expanded on that: "We're obviously hearing the request for a more free-flowing, open-sandbox large game mode and we're prototyping something of that nature for a future release (hopefully). I'm not sure if porting over a ruleset completely is the way to go yet (there were reasons why we decided not to do that previously) but as soon as I know for sure, I'll let you know."
Regarding Clone Wars content" and "any news on more customization", Brännvall simply replied with "Yes" and "Yes".
In a delightful nerdy manner, he then followed up with "You're exactly the kind of men I need in the 501st", a quote from Captain Rex from the Clone Wars series. As the player who asked the question used the #CaptRexInBFII hashtag, don't take that as anything more than a fan reference.
