    Some good vehicle changes but no mention of the AT-AT, AT-RT and MTT off target crosshair firing?

    Also the orbital bombardment needs to be visual like BF2015.

    Looking forward to trying out CS.

  • If my xbox is updating in the middle of the night, if I left the xbox turned on, will it find the update? Should I leave it on a specific screen so it can find the update easier?
  • "Due to a late balancing change, the ability description texts for Rey's Insight and Darth Vader's Focused Rage abilities have not been updated with the latest changes. "

    Stamina discount completely removed?
  • what about new and better AI in Arcade
  • Update for PC is available. Has been since 17 minutes ago.

  • Great for a day or two until 1 map over and over again becomes boring.
  • Anyone who has had the bug of their milestones being re-set, the update should have fixed it. I discovered earlier today I had the bug. After the update the bug is gone and all my milestones are back where they should be :)

    Thanks for the info, I’m gonna check after school
  • Yo uh I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I can't connect to the game anymore? I'm on Xbox and there seem to be no available updates. The game fully loads up but when it gets to the home screen it tells me to press right stick to connect and when I do I get an error. The console works fine and it's connected to the internet. What's the deal?

    I'd reset your console and internet and start again...hopefully it works.

    Oh alright, thanks. Should I be looking out for an update already or?

    I think your update should automatically start...I always load the game up on PS4 and within about 15 seconds an update icon comes up.
  • There are reports all over Reddit (such as this one - https://old.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBattlefront/comments/b5obiq/heroes_are_free_for_everyone_now/) that this update has unlocked all heroes for free for all players that had not bought them.

    Is this a bug or was this deliberate? Only asking as there are lots of aggrieved people posting about it.

    Might be worthing starting a post on General Discussion page if this is true....
  • Yeah my ps4 keeps starting a match and dc's...i find the lack of connection disturbing!
  • Yup I have tried 5 different times to start a match of this new game mode for ps4 and still can’t. The new lightsaber combat has a lot of bugs and glitches too. Someone let them know on Twitter.
  • The ARC Trooper always had phase 2 armor... why does it have phase 1 on some maps?

    meh. the mode feels like playing 2 different modes at once. even in elite squadron on psp there was a real on/off planet/capital transition. the cutscenes aren't really what i was hoping for. they're not immersing. overall it feels like: i'm just enjoying the capture mode everybody was practically begging for, only to be suddenly interrupted and forced into the same old linear GA gameplay again to push more buttons. what is it with this need to tell players what to do? if you'd just have made the ground map as interesting as the ATTE geonosis map, and added droidekas, you'd have nailed it, apart from the mode being unpolished. don't believe i'm going to play this mode again. maybe introduce a true capture mode, now that you have the basics. would make the arcade people happy too. on the surface i have plenty room to avoid pesky heroes. on the capital it's locked in a cage with anakin again.

  • Hope to see the OT and ST Era in this mode soon.

    The Battle of Jakku with the ISD and Rebel ships falling from the skies like in 2015's map would be amazing
    Anything with the FirstOrder is gold.

    Cant wait, this in the OT would just be the best.

    (Also Era Specific modes should be the default for all modes outside of HvV)
  • Why is bobas only good ability card getting nerfed? He already has the worst health and weakest blaster in the game those are the things needing a patch. It was ridiculously hard to play him already in hvv now without a good damage ability hes unplayable. Anyone who enjoys playing as him would agree, and i urge a boost to blaster damage or health to make him playable again.
  • This game mode is INSANE
    Friendship ended with Galactic Assault, Capital Supremacy is my new best friend
  • Been trying to find a match for 15mins. Keep finding about 30 players then when we get close to 40 a bunch of folk give up and quit. Seriously never gonna find a match at this rate
  • This is rubbish. I'm away to play another game
  • Yet again no fix for the disruptors!! Stinky
  • I wanted to play capital supremacy before I said anything about it. I have played it and can now say that capital supremacy is awesome! The new reinforcements are really cool as well. I can't wait to see what other maps come to capital supremacy. I also look forward to seeing the infiltrator reinforcement in the Original Trilogy and Sequel Trilogy eras. More maps for capital supremacy is a must, but it is going to be a while before the new map/mode get old. (At least for me.) I could write more, but the enemy team is capturing a command post.

  • Why did you switch Anakins abilities around? It's just *****. I feel like a cripple trying to play him now. Button aren't where they are supposed to be.
    How about assignable buttons or something? I like them in the order they were before. Now I feel like the game is just broke more. Complete throwoff in gaming.
  • Would you guys reconsider adding a few new game modes to arcade please? I do enjoy playing the traditional conquest modes on the older battlefront games, That be cool.
  • Still no fix to anakin's retribution? Am i the only one who noticed or cares that this abitlity does like 500 damage and locks you in place for like 5 seconds... 😔 it's like kylo's freeze pre-nerf but almost cans any blaster hero in one go from full health. So dumb...

    Where do I find Capital Supremacy on the menu, it doesn't always appear at first

    Also, conection sucks on PS4, and it's really difficult to find a full match, always half the players and ping over 100 in Latibamerica
  • I think the new update is good but you always get the same old players constantly getting the hero or villians which is unfair to the players, if puts you off wanting to play anything else then HvsV. For example i’m currently in new mode & only able to get a hero once due to the same person who’s top of the score sheet always getting a hero.
  • Sooo it won’t even let me join the new mode. I just stay in the character screen for 5 mins then get kicked out for inactivity. This game was the biggest disappointment, they haven’t gotten one update to work yet. 🤦‍♂️ Bye battlefront.
  • GG.......oh wait I can’t even say that. HG. Horrible game. So much potential and the people making this just haven’t gotten one thing right
  • I’m confused, for some reason I have Obi-Wan, grievous and Dooku even though I didn’t buy them, why is that
  • Why will this not launch for me on PS4?
  • Dookus pajamas are dumb as hell and i wont buy them. Give us some better skins for Original Trilogy characters, *****
  • I have to admit, I'm really impressed with this update. Lots of much needed bug fixes and gameplay adjustments - especially in regards to lightsaber combat - and the new content is pretty darn incredible.

    Here's hoping more maps and eras will be added to Capital Supremacy, and the other factions will get the Infiltrator Class Special Unit.

    Excellent work, DICE. :sunglasses:
    "All wings report in."
  • It's not letting me into the new game mode. This is dope af love this game
  • Wtf? No anakin buff? He pretty much ruined galactic asssault. Most my freinds quit the game because you cant win as dark side if an even moderatly skilled anakin is getting 120 player killstreaks. Most the dark side villians have no defense against his pull._..Reallyblows when you save up battle points the whole game, get bossk and then get instantly killed by a retribtion from a level 1 anakin. Best 2.._i mean three abilities of any hero._..Check. Unblockable saber ._.Cheak. Able to wipe out your whole sqaud with a click of a button..__ check
  • I wanna know why my 327th star corps appearances are gone, and why I have to buy them again. 😑👿
  • You guys are doing an awesome job ! I am a lifelong Star Wars fan and I'm loving all the updates and attention you all are giving this game ! Bravo and THANK YOU!!!!!
  • Hey so if all the heros were just given to players for free that didn't have them before then can the players that did buy them get refunded those credits, if the heros given away were intentionally.

    I have finally gotten to about 200,000 for the first time as I bought just heros and don't buy the skins, I had to grind and drop $80 on Crystal's to get all the clone wars dlc skins I wanted for my troopers, the general kenobi skin, and I'm waiting for general Skywalker. Would love to get skins for other eras but just don't want to go into a grind wall like the one at the launch of this game I went through to get all the heros then. Got Lea the night before that update and blew all those credits to feel cheated last time and I would just like to know if this will become a regular occurrence or not. If it will then I'll just save for skins and not the actual hero.

    You do not have any clue on how to make a great STAR WARS game that sure.
  • How about more Tatooine boards. Maybe a Dune Sea battlefield sitting between cliff top Tusken Raider snipers, Old Ben's cave & the outside of Jabba's palace. Where bounty hunters & Vile criminals take pot shots at both squads. Give us a chance 2 light up some of our favorite & familiar scum from Jabba's. Maybe in the middle of the board, have Owen & Beru's still smoking bodies laying next 2 their home. Or the Sarlacc. See Jedi Academy for the Mos Eisley Spaceport.

    How about Umbara, Ryloth, Mygeeton, Naboo plains & or swamp, Florum, Onderon & Christophsis. For Clone Wars era. & really! Why aren't Jango Fett, Asajj Ventress, Cad Bane & Windu on this game yet? Sorry but you should be paying me for this last one. The Emperor has 2 lightning casting hands, Hello? Please patch us a Y button Solution to switch to TWO Lightsabers. They should come right out of his sleeves & back in disguised when not attacking or blocking. & he should talk way more trash.

    But to be truthful. U guys did great work on updates.

  • New mode stopped working last night. Loads up to fighter select then wont let me select anyone. You can stick this 1 map garbage where the sun dont shine.
  • Yeah, new mode was really fun while it worked. Now it doesn't work, I get stuck in the player select screen an sthats it. So I switch country servers and it just kicks me out when I load into a game. I'm sure most have this problem. There is 0 justification for this happening. It's called someone dropped the ball on this one. Incompetents truly on display here. Good job.

    Incoming Transmission!

    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.

    wk2gdubpyy0u.jpg

    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.

    Read all about Capital Supremacy, here.



    owkzy1py29vf.jpg

    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.

    Learn everything about these two new Infiltrator reinforcements, here.


    sk7ok2vpjmlb.jpg

    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.

    To learn about how this part of combat is changing, read up on it here.

    • A new appearance for Count Dooku, Exquisite Pajamas, is now available to unlock for Credits and Crystals.

    QUALITY OF LIFE

    ANAKIN SKYWALKER
    • Improved the timing of Anakin's abilities, to allow for more timely attacks after an ability is performed.
    • Adjusted the button placement for Anakin's abilities to allow for more intuitive controls.

    • Fixed an issue that would cause Lightsaber Heroes' blocking functionality to break if they blocked the Electrocute ability inside the Dark Aura ability range.

    YODA
    • Fixed an issue where Yoda's blocking would lose its functionality after using the Presence ability right when a crowd control ability was used on him.

    DARTH VADER
