Today during EA’s E3 2017 briefing, developer DICE announced more details about Star Wars: Battlefront II‘s “live service” model. As suspected, there will not be a season pass, but instead, DICE will offer seasons of themed content, which the studio won’t charge for.
The first of the four batches of content will be themed around the upcoming movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It will include the characters Finn and Captain Phasma, but that’s all we know right now.
Also during the briefing, DICE released an impressive new multiplayer trailer that showed an epic battle on Theed, the capital city of Naboo. We also saw a frustratingly brief clip of Battlefront II’s new single-player campaign, which follows a soldier fighting for the Empire.
We’ll report back with more details on Star Wars: Battlefront II and its new single-player mode. in the days ahead. In the meantime, follow along with our EA Play liveblog for all of the other news the company has to share at the event, and check out our E3 hub for all of our coverage.
