40 Trooper skins

Bear in mind this content was leaked in November with additional clone legion skins they have since removed from the update.

It’s not 40 skins. What they mean is 8 different swappable heads copied and pasted on to all the different classes with a couple of Alien heads thrown in.

No customisable outfits for troopers or swappable genders.

Hero Skins

We have been given several that already existed in game like Rey, Endor Leia, Lando, Helmetless Iden.

So in 5 months they have put a bandage on Chewbacca and a hood on Yoda.

And they have added a LT game mode that no one asked for.

There was so much customisation from the first game they could have ported over and made this update half decent.

Just added this gif of customisation in the last game to show how poor this update is.

This was what I was expecting when they said customisation update.

  • Anyone wants a look at the customisation this is what it might look like, only it won’t have the clones as it has since been taken out of the files.

    By the way this was all leaked back in November
  • Wasn’t expecting one, was maybe expecting customisation skin to the level of the first game at least. Also some options made in the last 5 months or ported over from the last game could have gone a long way.

    Last game we had

    Head
    Gender
    Outfit

    In this ‘customisation update’ we have 3 new hero skins they made and swappable heads that they have had since November...

    This was never said to be a massive update.

  • The only skin id say is new is hooded yoda. They already had helmetless Iden rendered, sticking a bandaid on chewbacca and kylo is a joke , and we have to see what endor han will look like this:
    e06793bdd3268177c1ed5cbfa4c8ffc0.jpg
    Or this
    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQfL9rIqvfaxFpaso61mdf-AY6w4HOn5w-tYUDi8y8kb8uHDqdc

    This is the one skin I was truly excited about before the game even came out. If he doesn't have the duster I might cry....
  • I was hoping for something like this as well as the changeable heads and aliens.

  • Right, i wanted a han skin that finally had him in a ANH-esque outfit with the vest/stripped pants, without having to equip that hideous bearded skin. Im hoping they go with the latter image but if its han with that camouflage coat i’ll be severly disappointed

    Well it clearly said Han "Endor", not Han from A New Hope. I trust that we will get A New Hope Han as a skin soon enough, along with Luke and Leia.

    You have reached enlightenment.
  • https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBattlefront/comments/8bzspt/before_people_say_but_there_are_40_new_trooper/?st=JFYAVTDY&sh=55681d23

    Someone over on Reddit has made a list of the trooper skins pretty much confirming they are the ones from the files and that some of them are reused between factions resulting in a total of 23 new heads that are being added most of which are recycled assets from bf2015.
  • And they didn't even talk about Season 2 content.

    Haven't they said Season 2 in May and further seasons will either be to tie in with new movies or Starwars anniversaries.
  • Either we'll be impressed/elated or disappointed/upset come the 18th. I don't think there will be anything in between. I want this customization very bad, I'm begging for it to deliver.
    Valid Token Confirmed.

    Oh man, if true, NOTHING for the Republic or Empire minus officers??? No changing of pauldron colors at least, no different legion colors.... :|

    No, in 5 months they gave us a new map, 2 new heroes, a new mode, an old map, and they built the progression system from the ground up, don't be so hard on them

    Lulz

    My hope is that they're not including Clone skins because A) they'll be released with a Clone Wars season, and B) they've realised that people don't want multiple legions on the battlefield at the same time and they're going to design skins that change legion colour depending on which map you're on, sort of like this - https://imgur.com/a/5y7Fa (shameless self promotion ;) ).

    I honestly wasn’t expecting much more in this announcement then what we got. I played battlefront 1 from launch up until the release of BF2 so I’m pretty used to empty promises and slow updates. I think the replayability and the cool community we had (especially on the forums) back during Battlefront 1 was what kept me invested in the game. Now that BF2 lacks the same replayability that BF1 had (imo) and the community (especially on the forums) has just turned into a toxic mess, I’m losing interest quick in BF2.

    I set my expectations pretty low. Honestly, I didn't expect any more trooper customization than what was leaked already. I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't stoked to be a Zabrak heavy, and while I'm not happy that I have to be a specialist to be a Twi'lek, I'm really happy to have that head in the game next week as well. Maybe I'll even learn how to play the class at an above-noob level. I won't comment about the clone skins because I guess we don't know for absolute sure that they won't be available next week.

    I just hope that a hooded Darth Maul skin eventually gets added. It seems like a lot of others want that as well, so hopefully we'll get it in the future.

    Well I for one am still disappointed we can't choose any race, gender, hairstyle and alien species because I really want to be a female Zabrak specialist so I can pretend to be Jas Emari from the Aftermath novels, as well as a male Mirialan Assault, a male Abednedo Heavy, and a female Twi'lek Officer.
    As far as clone skins are concerned, I'm failry confident that we're definitely not getting them...yet. What makes me so sure is that the total number of skins seen in the leaked menu was 74, the number of clone skins for Assault, Heavy and Specialist were 8 each (none for Officers). Add those together and you get 24, 74-24 = 50, exactly the number were told we'd be getting next week. Also, Elliot has a theory that clone skins will come with a Clone Wars update and since he's very much "in the know", I believe him when he says that.
    As much as I would really like for the next Season to be Clone Wars, I hope it isn't because I would really like to see DICE have the time to make better Clone Trooper skins, not just give us different legions. Pre-set skins that change legion colours to match the planet you're on like in this concept I did - https://imgur.com/a/5y7Fa.

  • i want a torguta skin
  • So possibly no clone officer appearance? I will not be playing this game if they don't add a real clone officer skin. I'm sick of seeing a naval officer fighting along side armored clones. I play strike and blast so I dont have to see wrong era hero's but I can't avoid naval officer trash.

    Dude your so right, the guys here during bf15 were the coolest, very few still left from what I see. Straight up players and slayers and clan members, also a lotta fun back then. Also loved reading the threads back then.

    The forums during the first battlefront were unmatched. When DLC would drop for BF1, I enjoyed reading the forum’s reactions and discussions about as much as playing the DLC. :D

    Players seemed to understand exactly what the first battlefront was all about. It was a fun, basic shooter that included a season pass that promised 4 DLC packs. Sure the content in BF1 was lacking but I beleive players understood that BF1 wasn’t ever going to be exuberant in content. Players around here seemed to accept this back then and those who were still interested in the game stayed, and those who decided the game wasn’t for them left. The forums back then just seemed to be more about discussing the actual game and interacting with a cool community.

  • @EA_Tom I see you commented earlier. I’m
    Glad you have seen this thread. You said more are coming, but what does that mean?

    Are we going to be able to have the basic customisation of last game and swap genders and outfits for our troopers or is this face/head swapping all we can expect?

    Have to say I’m absolutely gutted by the announcement today it’s incredibly disappointing.

    100% bro, miss a lot of those guys and played with a ton of them, shame so many have left this game because many were so excited about bf2 when it launched. Heck, like you said the forums were as fun as the game sometimes. I’m sure we remember many of the same guys. Hate to use the cliche the good old days, but it really was.

    The thing is, the forums were a lot more happy and helpful because the game was in a better state. The last game had scheduled DLCs that made the game significantly better.

    The Death Star DLC is one of my favourite pieces of game development and blowing it up as Red 5 for the first time was a real high.

    This game has been a repetitive story of players being let down by EA/DICE, from a lack of DLC to MTX to having less customisation than the old game to uninspiring content drops. The reason this forum is the way it is isn’t the players fault. I follow here and the Reddit because I love Star Wars and this is the only AAA Star Wars game out there at the moment and it’s been a massive let down
