'Star Wars Battlefront 2' Roadmap Oct. 2

October

  • General Grievous Hero (with Jedi Hunter and Battle Damaged Appearances)
  • Hero Health Rework
  • Regeneration balancing

November

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi Hero (with Jedi Master and Robed Appearances)
  • Grievous Appearance
  • Geonosis Galactic Assault map
  • 212th Attack Battalion Appearances
  • STAP, BARIC, SPEEDER and AT-TE vehicles for Geonosis

January

  • Count Dooku Hero with Appearance
  • General Kenobi Obi-Wan Appearance
  • Coruscant Guard Appearances

February

  • Anakin Skywalker Hero with an Appearance
  • New mode with capture points and Capital Ship takedowns
  • 501st Legion Appearances

This is the first time we've received a concrete estimate of the Battlefront 2 content release schedule for 2019. Previously, Anakin and Dooku had vague winter release windows, but now we know both conflicted characters will make their debuts early next year. Considering Obi-Wan will arrive first, he'll once again be able to claim the higher ground against his troubled padawan learner.

Speaking specifically to the health changes due later this month, DICE has also posted a Community Transmission blog post alongside the Roadmap. It suggests underused Hero Star Cards will be replaced by Health Star Cards, with varying impacts depending on the Hero in play. While some Heroes will be able to recharge health after defeating an enemy, others will only be able to regen if players are defeated using specific abilities. It doesn't appear these changes will have any effect on standard troopers.

While this content may not exactly be the massive DLC blowout diehard fans were hoping for, today's Roadmap update is far from the last one DICE will prepare. As release dates draw closer, subsequent revisions will be made to offer more detailed information.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. All above-listed DLC is free on all platforms.
