Star Wars: Battlefront 2 roadmap teases The Rise of Skywalker content

Fine-tuned by an ongoing lineup of updates, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 managed to recover from its controversial, microtransaction filled launch in 2017. Despite these improvements, Battlefront 2 has long emphasized its multiplayer components, leaving its single players out in the cold with its incoherent story mode and scant arcade modes. According to the latest content roadmap, that's about to change.

Today's roadmap outlines the content Electronic Arts has in store for the rest of the year. One of the biggest highlights comes in the form of two upcoming modes: online Co-op and Instant Action. Intended for small groups of friends, Co-op lets you and up to three other players complete missions and take part in large-scale battles on Clone Wars era planets. 

Instant Action, a mode that has featured in previous Battlefront titles, draws from the planetary phase of Capital Supremacy, creating massive battles populated by AI companions and enemies for solo players to enjoy. Like Co-op, Instant Action launches in September, and will offer access to all current Capital Supremacy maps: Naboo, Kamino, Kashyyyk, Geonosis, and Felucia.

Beyond the two modes, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will receive several other updates including Felucia, a new large-scale map. "With only a single, powerful vehicle left to cover the evacuation of a Felucian farming community, the clones struggle to maintain their last line of defense long enough for Republic transports to collect a large cache of valuable medicinal plants from the village," says the official description.

Fans of the Clone Wars television series also have a new special unit to look forward to: Clone Commando. These formidable troops have a reputation for taking on challenging missions, augmented by their transforming blaster rifles. You can unlock them in matches by spending hero points. Other quality of life improvements like new appearance for B1 droids and a contextual spawning feature will emerge this month.

Finally, Electronic Arts has promised Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker crossover content in December, though, they've declined to share any specific details.
