    No game mode or map tied to the movie?

    There is a new game mode. HvV 2v2. And likely the movie content will be in Part 2 of the season next month.

    Also: Hopefully great stuff will be released once Solo comes out, which is only in a couple weeks! Based on this transmission, I still probably won't play much until then except for trying out Jabba's palace on Blast.

    In June, I'm guessing they will release a couple characters to play from Solo and a map from Solo for GA/Strike/Blast or possibly a Kessel Run SA map. Not getting my hopes up though.

    New hero mode sounds fun. Hopefully there will be additional content in June instead of all the things they listed taking two months to implement. The new skins look cool, and obviously there will be a few more legendary ones, but I'm wondering how much they will cost. If there is more actual content (maps, modes, new starcards, guns), not just skins, that will be added in June then consider me happy with the update.

  • That sounds great! Can't wait to get the my hands on the new stuff!
    Will temporary modes become permanent some day?

    Like some Jabbas palace and being able to spend Skill Points between rounds. Hopefully this helps keep people in lobbies.

  • 1. The season 2 is coming on May 16 or June?

    2. Will we be able to change skins between rounds as well? Or only level cards up?
  • Cool skins but..... No classic Han :weary:

    Great to see Jabba's Palace coming back.. A few new rooms maybe? I'd love to see random Gammy guards roaming around attacking people or maybe bring back the live Rancor into the pit. lol

  • I would like at least 3 Han Solo outfits in this season.
    1. Young Han

    It's a bit diapointing I mean some of the stuff sounds cool. But why don't they just tell us everything we will get in the next two months or whatever. I was hoping to hear everything we will get in solo season. Plus we badly need new GA maps are we ever going to get that. As usual it's a bit of news and then back to the usual we can't say anything more and you'll have to wait to see

    Am I the only one noticing the irony of a Han Solo season with no Han in the 1st half of it?

    Awesome! Thanks for this!
    Thats it?

    Keep the dissapointment coming

    You got to be kidding...

    You cant be serious that this is good looking after 6 months of nothing

    Uhh, yeah? Considering there will be another update in june based on the new movie, it seems quite substantial, doesn’t it?

    You must be trolling. There's no way a sane person would be fine with such lackluster update after SIX MONTHS (and soon, eight). It's hilarious

    This is not the full update! How on earth can this be so hard to understand? A sane person would take that into consideration before posting.

    A sane person would be pulling their hair out about now. How can anyone give EA the benefit of the dought at this point

    Looking at the "Jabba's Palace" theme, wondering if we'll get a "Hooded Luke" skin at some point during Season 2? People have been asking for it and it fits with the theme....

    While they could’ve said if there’re GA maps and the like in the update, don’t you think a lot of the secrecy is because it is based on a movie that hasn’t been released yet?
  • Awesome! I'm very excited to see what's next. I appreciate doing what you can to listen to the community. I know it takes a village to make a game and continue to improve upon it.

    Thank you so much!

    Sadly
  • Sounds fun to me. Finally pushing the hero skins into new territory! And Jabba’s Palace was fun. Hopefully some improvements were added to it. A Rancor would be awesome, but doubtful...

    Awesome, can't wait to get back inside Jabba's Palace.

    One question; is Hero Showdown a temporary or permanent mode?

    I doubt Clone skins are likely in 'The Han Solo' season.

    Two part han solo season

    Not sure if they meant a two part season. I think they meant that the updates they just highlighted will take two months to be fully implemented.

    The article says content based on the new SOLO movie will arrive in june, doesn’t it?

    ”The fun begins on May 16 with a trip back to the original trilogy before jumping into new content for June inspired by the forthcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story™ film – but more on that later. First, let’s talk about what you’ll be able to play this month.”

    I can't see that anywhere either. You are referring to this thread aren't you? I've used the search tool and it's not showing up.

    No improvement to finding games on servers? No new maps for GA? Weapons? Looks like EA does not want to spend money on this game now that the game no longer has loot boxes.

    It's coming in the second part of the season. They had to break it up so it wouldn't spoil the movie. That's why season 2, party 2, is coming out in June.
  • Sounds cool, but why is it every time a new map releases its only blast and hvv i want strike variants for bespinnand jabbas palace.. new weapons and ship skins would also be cool

    Not going to lie, kind of disappointed that the season is split in 2 and that we have to wait to learn about what's coming in the 2nd half. All I know is, we better get a new hero and villain in the 2nd half of the season, not having them in the first half is incredibly disappointing as long as we've been waiting for content. Seems like the new content is mostly skins at this point. I get that EA needs to make money to fund this DLC but still, skins don't add nearly as much value to the game as actual content like new maps/modes/heroes/villains/ trooper weapons/reinforcement types/starships/etc.

    Please deliver with actual new content in the 2nd half of the season, something like:

    -New land map from the Solo movie (Kessel, Mimbam, Corellia, or Vandor)
    -New space map from the Solo movie (Kessel Run)
    -New hero (Qi'ra or Tobias) and new villain (Enfys Nest or Dryden Vos)
    -New trooper weapons, or at least moddable versions of the starting weapons
  • Okay, I see what they're doing here. I love Jabba's Palace, so that's cool. I thought for sure Extraction was coming back, so that's a tad disappointing. But that Leia costume is sweet. On the other hand, no new SA map which is DESPERATELY needed. But back to the positives, the new Hero mode and SA arcade are welcome additions. And if anything helps those atrocious loading screens, especially when you first start the game, I'm all for that.

    I can't wait to hear more about Part 2. Bring on the SA maps!!!!

    I doubt Clone skins are likely in 'The Han Solo' season.

    The recent skin leaker said they were coming in season 2, and he was right about the Leia Boush skin, even had a screenshot of her which matches the one released in this community update.

    Don't Call it a season.
    More of a simple update. Some new Skins. A Duo Mode for hero's. An announcement on Arcade mode.
    Some basic tweeks to meus, And a mysterious Part2
    No new maps? No new heroes?
    Very undewhelming

    I give up... smh...

    Give up what?

    What is it you're trying to get across to people, that this is a solid season after nearly 6 months?

    It isn't.

    No new heroes.

    1 map.

    2 modes, one a cut down version of a mode that people don't play as much because of issues.

    What did the DLC give you in BF1? Heroes and maps. That's really what brings people into playing.

    This is just another big let down and the cherry on top is, it's spread out over 2 months!!!!!

    All those saying that free updates is great and paid for DLC is rubbish, what would you rather have now? Pay £10 for a skin or £20 for 4 new maps, new game modes and... new heroes.

    Leadership at DICE doesn't know what it's doing.

    I guess the more than 7 people working on this game is entirely accurate as I bet it's less than 10 and these "seasons" will show it.

    No, that this isn’t the full update. That it clearly states that more content is coming in the Han Solo season, once the movie is out.

    But would it matter if the june update did include new maps and heroes?
  • Will thie upcoming patch have hero balancing in it?
