Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Rise of Skywalker Update
Alongside the brand new jungle planets, The Rise of Skywalker Update will also introduce four new reinforcements to Star Wars Battlefront 2.
The First Order's ranks will grow with the addition of the Sith Trooper, who relies on speed and advanced weaponry, and the First Order Jet Trooper, equipped with a jet pack and grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle.
Over on the Resistance side, the Gunner and Spy reinforcements will enter the fray, as two new alien species from the Rise of Skywalker. Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren will also receive new appearances based on the film.
Star Wars Battlefront 2's The Rise of Skywalker Update will go live in a slightly staggered fashion. The bulk of it will be available on December 17 with the new jungle planet entering rotation three days later, on December 20.
The shooter will continue to receive free content as it enters its third year. January will bring more Sequel Trilogy content as it is introduced to Instant Action and Capital Supremacy. Players will be treated to the Resistance MC85 and First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer, but also BB-8 and BB-9E as new heroes.
