The primary season of DLC for Battlefront II is, no shock, utterly targeted on the most recent movie within the new trilogy, The Final Jedi. With the DLC set to start out rolling out quickly, EA determined to drop a trailer in an effort to get gamers able to dive again into the sport.
This primary trailer focuses on a pair of characters which can quickly be usable as heroes within the recreation, together with Finn and Captain Phasma. Finn is the lovable Stormtrooper who realized he was combating for the unsuitable aspect, whereas Phasma was criminally underused within the earlier movie, The Force Awakens. It is not that I am tremendous, tremendous bitter or something, however how are you going to create a personality that appears as badass as Captain Phasma after which have her within the film, doing subsequent to nothing, for a couple of grand complete of three minutes?
Fortunately, it seems like The Final Jedi will give Phasma her likelihood at redemption and Finn an opportunity to go toe to toe with the embodiment of all of the issues he now stands towards. We already know that Finn’s actor, John Boyega, is excited to dive into the brand new content material, so here is hoping it lives as much as his hype.

Whereas we’re trying ahead to taking management of those battles ourselves, we’re a bit extra excited to see them unfold on the large display screen. In spite of everything, the sport’s present showdowns are thrilling as a result of we have been watching them within the motion pictures for years and now we’re attending to play them. It’s going to be good to have some context earlier than becoming a member of the fray ourselves.
Additionally revealed within the trailer is the truth that, sure, Iden’s story will likely be persevering with within the type of DLC. The Battlefront II marketing campaign, whereas a bit disjointed, felt full. It ends with an enormous cliffhanger, however that is not precisely a nasty transfer. However, it seems like, as an alternative of ready for the subsequent recreation, we’ll get to see the place issues head subsequent as soon as the brand new DLC will get rolling out.
I do not need to dive too deeply into spoiler territory right here, however there are a number of good causes that is being included as a part of the Final Jedi DLC season. Say what you’ll about EA’s awful microtransactions and loot field points, the sport itself was stable and we’re all in favour of seeing the narrative proceed.
If nothing else, it was a very stable transfer on their half to announce that, sure, all of this added content material will likely be free for all gamers when it launches Dec. 13. Nonetheless, we’ll in all probability make sure that we have seen the film earlier than enjoying any of the brand new content material.
