This morning, EA DICE revealed that the Cooperation Update will officially go live in Star Wars Battlefront II on Wednesday, September 25th.
This major update features the addition of one of the Republic’s most powerful soldiers, the Clone Commando – an elite operative deployed by the Galactic Republic in high-profile missions. Weilding a DC-17m Repeating Blaster Rifle with an Anti-Armor attachment, the Clone Commando’s weapon releases a powerful shockwave knocking enemies off their feet.
Players can also experience the enchantingly exotic Felucia planet as a new playable location, as they will encounter tentacle-like vegetation spewing poisonous gas, farmlands, pouring rivers and the giant sarlacc pit.
Through a special in-game challenge on October 11th-18th, fans can also obtain the classic Farmboy attire as worn by Luke Skywalker in A New Hope.
More importantly, Instant Action mode makes its official return in Star Wars Battlefront II and brings Co-Op along, as up to four players can play through objectives while taking on the AI enemies together. I doubt it’ll live up to the goofy beauty of the original Battlefront II’s Instant Action (Mos Eisley, Hero units only, never forget), but it’s a fantastic value add that will, hopefully, give this game a little bit more credibility.
Star Wars Battlefront II continues to plow forward against all odds and grow its content offering. More content is still on the way, and it may be culminating alongside the release of The Rise of Skywalker this holiday season. Fans of Star Wars will want to pay close attention to the game now that we’re nearing the franchise’s next climax. Further details can be found in the official blog post.
