EA and DICE today announced the Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition, which launches tomorrow.
Star Wars Battlefront II has come a long way. At launch, the game was a mess thanks to a progression system entirely reliant on microtransactions, a miserable campaign, plenty of issues, and a copy-paste roster of heroes and villains from the original game. Despite promising players an experience that celebrates all eras of Star Wars, the end product never met that lofty goal. It’s amazing what two years can do.
After numerous updates that brought additional maps, heroes, and a complete overhaul of the progression system, Star Wars Battlefront II is thriving. There’s a lot to celebrate, which makes the Celebration Edition properly named. Retailing at $39.99 (existing owners can upgrade for $24.99), the edition comes with the base game and all previously released free and paid content, including:
- 25 Hero Appearances
- Six Legendary Appearances
- One new Appearance each for Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren based on their looks in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Arrives (December 17)
- 125+ Trooper and Reinforcement Appearances
- 100+ Hero and Trooper Emotes and Voice Lines
- 70+ Hero and Trooper Victory Poses
- New Appearances coming December 5 for the Clone Commando, BX Commando Droid, ARC Trooper, and the Droideka
Now, that doesn’t mean that everything released over the past two years comes with this edition. The Last Jedi appearances for Kylo and Rey remain exclusive to players who pre-ordered or own the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, special in-game event skins like Leia, Princess of Alderaan and Farmboy Luke also aren’t included.
Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition is out December 5 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
