Star Wars Battlefront 2 adds Rise of Skywalker content

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will add Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker content to the mix later today, EA and DICE have confirmed.

“Inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, set foot on an exotic new jungle planet where a fateful war between the Resistance and First Order thunders,” the duo said of the new content.

“Starting December 17, 2019, play as the ruthless Sith trooper, rain down fire from the skies with the new Jet trooper, or aid the Resistance with a hard-hitting Ovissian Gunner and resourceful Caphex Spy.

“BB-8 joins the battlefront in January 2020, bringing bravery and a fast-paced playstyle to the roster.”

The content update is free for those who own Star Wars Battlefront 2; the game is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker heads to theatres on 19 December.
