This update has been a much anticipated one, but it’s just around the corner! The headliner of this update is the new game mode, Capital Supremacy, but that by no means is all that’s coming. Brand new reinforcements and lightsaber combat changes are also arriving in this update, along with a number of tweaks and fixes that can be found below.
The brand-new game mode comes to Star Wars Battlefront II in this update. Capital Supremacy has players face off against one another in a large-scale nonlinear battle. Both sides fight hard to take down their enemy’s capital ship while conquering the disputed planet.

Getting past enemy lines (with or without a squad) can be crucial to breaking their defences. The ARC Trooper and BX-series Droid Commando are exemplary at this. Both are lethal combatants with excellent battlefront awareness.

The lightsaber is a lethal tool that requires a tempered mind and skilled body to wield, not to mention prowess with the Force. With a lot of player feedback, we’ve updated lightsaber combat (including stamina changes) to provide an overall better player experience.
