Star Wars Battlefront 2 Scarif update will be the game’s last

After two delays, the eagerly awaited Star War Battlefront II: Battle on Scarif update will finally be going live tomorrow, EA DICE have confirmed.

Headlining this latest free content drop is a new map that brings Battlefront’s multiplayer action to the shores of Scarif, the planet that featured prominently in the final act of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

That isn’t the only thing fans have to look forward to. Age of Rebellion maps will now be playable in Supremacy and Instant Action, joining the other two Star Wars eras.

Not only that, DICE have expanded Battlefront II’s Instant Action mode for solo players. If you prefer being matched against bots or simply want to practice your skills then you can play access missions that place you in attack and defend scenarios with AI.

Here’s a detailed rundown of what the new update will include:

  • Scarif added as a new playable map on Co-Op Missions, Supremacy, Instant Action, Heroes Vs. Villains and Hero Showdown.

  • Supremacy and Instant Action are now available in the Age of Rebellion (Death Star II, Hoth, Yavin 4, Tatooine and Scarif).

  • New Missions (Attack) and Missions (Defend) modes added under Instant Action, allowing you to play Co-Op style maps as a single-player alongside AI.

  • Co-Op Missions are now available on the MC85 Star Cruiser and Resurgent-Class Star Destroyer.

  • Crait is now available on Heroes Vs. Villains and Hero Showdown.

  • New Episode IX-inspired appearances for Rey, Kylo Ren and Emperor Palpatine are now available to all players.

  • New appearances for Darth Maul and Rey are available to unlock via Milestones.

DICE have posted a more comprehensive explainer on updates being made to the game including UI improvements, reduced explosion damage, and quality of life changes.

In another accompanying post, Creative Director Dennis Brännvall confirmed that Battle on Scarif is Battlefront II’s final expansion. After 25 content drops since the game’s launch back in November 2017 the team are moving on though fans can expect the servers to stay online for “years” to come with regular community updates and in-game events still taking place.
