Things have been a little quiet on the Star Wars Battlefront II post-launch development front. Following the temporary removal of the game’s microtransactions, developer DICE hasn’t had much to say about what’s next for the game. That is, until now!
Following a Twitter spree of fan questions and answers from the game’s design director, DICE community manager Mat Everett offered some details about an upcoming patch.
Just wanted to provide a quick update on the upcoming happenings as we have seen a flurry of tweets from Dennis becoming the ‘Yes’ man in the last few hours. We have a patch incoming; it’s going to address more than a handful of items and misc. bug fixes. This patch is in the approval stage and should arrive soon pending those approvals.
As a small peek at what you should expect:
– Hero tweaks
– Wookie Warriors tweaked
– Trooper tweaks (Specialist, Heavy, and Officer)
– Weapon tweaks
– Bug fixes
and a lot more…
This update, called “1.1,” will be rolled out across all platforms tomorrow. Downtime will last for roughly 30-45 minutes.
On Tuesday, the 16th of January, Star Wars Battlefront II Patch 1.1 will go live across all regions and platforms. This update is both a client and server update. We expect roughly 30-45min of downtime per platform as the update rolls out across servers.
