Trailer basically dismantles the theory that Rey is Iden's daughter. Sounded stupid to begin with.

Disney wouldn't ever give that kind of creative control to EA ever.

It’s time for a major update! First off, a big thank you for playing! This patch is quite action packed with new content inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi™ movie.

 

NEW HEROES: FINN AND PHASMA
Introducing two new heroes!

  • Finn joins the Resistance. A skilled soldier, Finn now uses his training to protect his allies at any cost. Finn charges into battle and deals precise damage blazingly fast to any enemies who dare stand in the way.
  • And then we have the imposing commanding officer of the First Order: Captain Phasma. Few are more feared than Captain Phasma as she uses every tool at her disposal to ensure victory.

NEW CAMPAIGN DLC: RESURRECTION

  • Iden Versio is back in the Resurrection DLC! She is searching for answers, while the secrets of a First Order conspiracy are revealed. This DLC contains three new campaign chapters that continue Iden’s saga in the Star Wars universe.

NEW MAP: CRAIT (Galactic Assault)

  • On the mineral planet Crait, the First Order has trapped a group of Resistance fighters at what was once a Rebel Alliance outpost. You’ll see the First Order escorting the massive AT-M6 while Resistance fighters in ski-speeders attempt to stop them.

NEW MAP: D’QAR (Starfighter Assault)

  • As you recall from The Force Awakens, D’Qar is the principal base of the Resistance. Now experience an incredible space battle over that planet as the First Order attacks, threatening to wipe out the base, and the Resistance, once and for all.

HERO SHIP AND HERO SHIP UPGRADE

  • To spice up the space battle, we have also launched a new hero ship – Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing. For Poe Dameron, there is a new hero ship upgrade for his T-70 X-wing.

Below you will find a list of balance tweaks and changes for many of the Heroes – we will continue to monitor the state of balance across all Heroes and Classes to further improve gameplay balancing. We sure hope you will enjoy the new content and the improvements. We will do our best to keep you all updated on all coming improvements. If you have feedback on the game, please post on our forums!

Thanks,
The Star Wars Battlefront II Live Team

Done with DLC chapters. Z0Xk2Fq.png Quite short. Took about 75-80 minutes to wrap it up. Sets up well for future chapters.

 

Zay is her daughter. Sadly, Iden Versio is dead.

 

Rewards: 3K credits, 3 cards for Iden, 200 crafting parts.

The First Order won last week. Victory crate + 4 more class crates. With no more card rank requirement, it's nice to equip in all 3 slots. 

Continuous music is now in the game and selectable as well. 

 

Time to check out the new map.

Against all odds ("odds" being pushback against greedy f**kery)  :rofl:

4 million of CoD vs 800k, but "just behind" CoD  :rofl::rofl:

Massive success is followed by reduction in profit estimates due to poor sales, what :rofl::rofl::rofl: 

Cod sales are insane. Damn
