Star Wars Battlefront II update will fix BB-8 issues, patch notes here

Last week, EA DICE released the BB-8 update which added the droid alongside BB-9E as playable characters to Star Wars Battlefront II. However, as with all updates sometimes issues sneak in and have to be fixed. So, the development team is releasing a small patch across all platforms on February 12th to address some those issues. These include BB-8 and BB-9E having the wrong voiceover lines in certain instances, stamina getting drained too quickly, fixing collision, VFX and lighting on the MC85 Star Cruiser and Resurgent-class Star Destroyer. General Grievous and Darth Vader have also had changes applied to them.

Full release notes for the update are below:
