INCOMING TRANSMISSION

The topic of Clone Trooper armour is one that we’ve seen a lot of feedback on across the last few months and back in December last year we mentioned that we were making some changes to the Clone Trooper appearance system.
We’ve heard a lot about authenticity when it comes to Clone Troopers and how they look, which is why we have been working closely with our friends at Lucasfilm to ensure that each legion is representative of how you would expect them to look.

One of the key goals for what we outline below is to bring you a lot more variety and choice to your Clone Trooper experience while retaining this authenticity.
DEFAULT APPEARANCES

As part of this update, Clone Troopers will have a new default appearance. The frequently requested ‘shinies’ will now become the default look for all Clone Troopers.

For those wanting to use the previous planet specific default appearance, you will still be able to do so as they will now become free unlocks.

PHASES

Another of the changes being implanted for this updated revolves around the different Phases of Clone Troopers.
We will be separating both the Phase I and Phase II Troopers and allowing you to use them as individual appearances as you desire. What this means is that should you prefer the Phase I version of a specific legion you will be able to use them regardless of the planet you are playing on.
TROOPER VARIETY

Under the new system, Troopers will be visually different from one another, but all the time retaining the overall theme of their specific legion.

What this means is a Heavy will have different markings to a Specialist (and Assault, Officer…), but you will still be able to tell which legion they belong to.

104th Phase 2

ARMOURED OFFICERS

One of the more prominent bits of feedback we’ve received revolves around Clone Trooper Officers. Under the current Trooper system, Officers only have the naval uniform appearance as an option. Once the new system rolls out in the February update, Clone Trooper Officers will be able to equip armour the same way as Assault, Specialist, and Heavy Troopers.

The naval uniform is not going away, though. It will remain as a free unlock for anyone wishing to use it.
LEGIONS

The changes being made also means that the number of potential Clone Trooper Legions being available to choose from will increase.
  • New Default "Shinies"
  • 501st Battalion
  • 327th Star Corps
  • 91st Recon Corps (w/ new helmet)
  • 104th Wolf Pack
  • 212th Attack Battalion
  • Coruscant Guard
  • 41st Elite Corps
  • 181st Armor Division
  • 41st Ranger Platoon
  • 87th Sentinel Corps
  • Navy Officer
EXCHANGE CRATES

With these changes, we will be implementing a system that will exchange the old Appearances for the Phase II version of the new Appearances. As part of this process, we will be removing the currently existing Appearances from the game.

What this means is that anyone that currently owns either, or multiple of the 104th, 212th, 41st, 327th or 91st Appearances will receive the updated versions via an in-game crate. Simply head to the crate menu once the update is live and you’ll find your new Appearances waiting for you.

501st Phase 1


APPEARANCE COSTS
With the inclusion of Officers getting armoured Appearances, the legion bundles will now cost 60,000 credits or 1,500 crystals. Legion bundles will contain all of the Phase II Appearances for a specific Legion.

Phase II Clone Trooper Appearances will be classified as rare and will cost 20,000 credits each, or 500 crystals.. The Phase I variants will be common and are priced at 5,000 credits each, or 150 crystals.

When this update arrives on February 27th we will be granting everyone the "Legion Crate". This crate is intended to grant new players a ‘starter kit’ of Clone Trooper Appearances, along with some credits.
  • 41st Ranger Platoon (Phase I and II)
  • All 4 Phase I Appearances for the 41st, 91st, 104th, 212th, and 327th Legion.
  • 60,000 credits

The "Legion Crate" will be available from February 27th and will be available indefinitely.
CORUSCANT GUARD

This division of elite troopers was designated to protect the capital of the Galactic Republic and are identified by the red markings across their armour.

They could often be found patrolling the streets of Coruscant while also had the responsibility of protecting buildings of high importance. As the war progressed, the Coruscant Guard would go on to find themselves serving as bodyguards for members of the Galactic Senate and even the Supreme Chancellor himself.

While a lot of their duties would see them assigned to Coruscant, they also went off-world, often accompanying the Jedi.

One such mission saw them accompanying Jedi Master Yoda to the coral moon of Rugosa for a secret meeting with the King of Toydaria. The small force found themselves up against Asajj Ventress, apprentice to Count Dooku and some of her best Battle Droids.

Through the leadership and guidance of Yoda, the Coruscant Guards were able to make their way towards the negotiation site, successful in their mission but Asajj Ventress did escape.
501st BATTALION

“A great Jedi once told me that the best leaders lead by example.”Captain Rex

Perhaps the most well-renowned Clone trooper legion, the 501st Battalion led by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Captain CT-7567, more commonly known as Rex, fought across many of the biggest and most important battles of the Clone Wars. Though they had the same hearts and the same blood as all their brothers, their minds were sharpened by the diverse battlefronts they fought across.

501st Phase 2


However, their Jedi General, Anakin Skywalker, was also a source of their creativity and skill. Being forced to follow along with the maverick warrior, the 501st learned to adapt, think outside of their training, and to do whatever it took to secure victory, though never at the cost of innocent people. It was with pairing Anakin’s untraditional tactics and Rex’s by-the-book strategies that they were able to grow into one of the greatest Clone legions the Grand Army of the Republic had to offer.

We can’t wait to see the new look Clone Troopers deploying onto the battlefront alongside the 501st and the Coruscant Guard. All of the above will be available once the Chosen One Update releases later this month on February 27th. We’ll be back shortly with all the details on Anakin Skywalker.

Edit: Apologies for the confusion, the 87th Sentinel Corps are a real thing. Chosen One Crate is called "Legion Crate".

  • I am very curious. If Classes will be defined by markings, does this mean we will be able to customize their actual equipment? I am quite confused on this. I don't want to play as a Heavy without his backpack and kama.
  • So if we exchange our old legion skins for the ones via crates will we still have to buy the officer skins for that legion separately?

    We don't have the 87th, or the 181st. Are they teasing it?
  • Overall, this sounds really good. Mixing phases is a bit strange and I don't care for it but whatever. I'll have a hard time deciding what skins to use because there's so many.
  • Well I for once loved everything you just said.

    Soo that means a total of 8 clones per legion!

    So freaking stoked!!!

    Shues approved!
  • Anyone knows which legions are this?
    -181st Armor Division
    -87th Sentinel Corps
    -41st Ranger Platoon
  • To all you mad people....im very happy

    @S4M im googling too.

    The ranger corps I believe are the scouts while some had green and white armour while some had white and camo.
  • @S4M

    181st - blue armor with stripes and kamas they look almost like 501st.

    87th yellow gold

    I can't get the picks to download.
  • Few clarifying questions:
    for the exchange crates that we will receive for already purchased legions, will they come with the officer as well if we bought the bundle?

    and also, will there be actual customization among the kamas/pauldrons/visors/backpacks from class to class

    Nothing, They're nothing. They don't exist. Lucasfilm has just given DICE some official sounding names for the Naboo and Kashyyyk skins and have seemingly changed the name of the 41st Elite Corps, but since the multiplayer of this game isn't canon, these legions aren't either.

    Things in MP are canon, it's just the way they're used that isn't canon (cross faction, battle outcomes etc.). So the 181st and the 87th will be canon when this update comes out.

    the 181st and the 87th are probably the current planet locked skins (Naboo/Kashyyyk), while the 41st Ranger is probably the camouflage based on the name, while 41st Elite would be their grey markings if my theory is correct.

    Things seen in the multiplayer are from canon but DICE have always maintained that the multiplayer itself is not canon, so why then is it dictating it? They could've more easily just scrapped both of these skins and just made the "shiny" skin the default then they wouldn't have to make up random legions that will never be seen in any canon material and change the name of a well-estalished legion for no logical reason at all.

    They haven't changed any legion names. I've never seen anything saying everything in MP isn't canon.

    Would't be the first time though, the Lego animated series/shorts are non-canon, but canon still dictates what they can and cannot use/do.

    They haven't changed any legion names, what are you talking about? I've also not see anyone say that MP is 100% Non-Canon. Even Wookieepedia treats some of it it as canon, if someone had stated that it was non-canon, they would state that.

    And even if it is non-canon, this wouldn't be the only non-canon product to have to abide to canon. The Lego Animated Series/Shorts can't contradict canon even though they're non-canon.

  • Really nice job with the skins :) but I don't understand one thing, you can take off all accessories of your clone or am I wrong??

    From what I can tell from the text, each legion/class has it's own unique accessories. You can't change them.

    So do the movies and the TV show contain all the clone trooper divisions ever created? If you don't like the Dice-created divisions for some fanboyish reasons, don't play them.
  • Apparently Charlemagne confirmed on reddit that the camouflage clones will have the scout helmet from Episode 3.
  • We don't know if the new clone wars season (cannon) have or don't have these legions so. I'm going to love what we get.

    My only problem is that I can't get anikin right away like C.D. because I need to grind to get both phase of clone troopers. I don't think I have enough credits cause I haven't been playing a lot. 😂

    Why the hell would you allow phase 1 and 2 on the same map. It makes no sense. That’s like having imperial and first order stormtroopers at the same time. Mistake

    Technically, it can make sense. In the real world, it takes militaries many months to fully replace technology due to different factors - availability, acccessibility, etc. It's not unreasonable to assume that certain troopers got their Phase II before others.

    That sounds interesting, I hope your theory is correct too.


  • Why do you ruin the changes by allowing the choice of phase 1 or 2 independent of the planet?
    Nobody asked for this

    Phase 1 and Phase 2 in the same battle, fatal error

    You are such a party pooper...

    I always prefered the phase 1 helmet anyways, and the 91st BARC trooper helmet too...

    As of it would be nice to choose the helmet independently too of the armour, and upper and lower parts of the outfit too and some accesories/attachments...

    extra ammo pouches arm/leg, bandolier, kama, mono/dual pauldron, goggles, range finder, extra armor chest plate

    ...and that for all factions.
  • So...the 91st recon squad is getting a new helmet...what about the 41st? Are they getting a new helmet like they have in ROTS on Kashyyyk?

    Honestly, whoever you spoke to gave you really bad advice because the 104th STILL have the helmet of Sinker instead of the standard Wolfpack helmet, and then there's this:

    Eh? None of the 104th clones up there are using Sinker's helmet pattern.
  • I doubt anybody would really have missed them.
    But it's not just about the fact that they've gone to the pointless effort of naming legions nobody cared about.

    Please speak for yourself, thanks.
  • I love it. Can't wait for February 27.
