The Rise of Skywalker Update
The next update for Star Wars Battlefront II is titled The Rise of Skywalker and as you might have guessed, it focuses on content around the upcoming, highly anticipated film.
So what’s coming in the update? First off we have a brand-new jungle planet. You might have caught a glimpse of this jungle like planet in the last trailer for Star Wars™: The Rise of Skywalker™. We’re bringing this planet to Co-Op in December, where you’ll be playing as either the Resistance or First Order as the conflict spreads to this tropical paradise. It will also be coming to Heroes Vs. Villains.
A new planet is great but we’ve also previously mentioned new reinforcements, and this month we have four brand new ones arriving into the game, split evenly between the Resistance and the First Order.
Joining the ranks of the First Order will be the Sith Trooper, a merciless trooper excelling in speed and advanced weaponry to hunt down and destroy anyone that stands in their way.
Alongside the Sith Trooper will be the First Order Jet Trooper that has received new training and jetpack equipment to achieve dominance over the Resistance. Achieve aerial superiority over the Resistance by using your grenade-attachment enhanced blaster rifle as you dodge, hover and maneuver through the air.
Taking up arms for the Resistance will be the Gunner and Spy unit. These are two new alien species from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Since the release of Co-Op, one of the big requests was focused around bringing new eras to the mode. This month we can confirm that the Sequel Trilogy will be arriving into Co-Op across the following maps: Jakku, Takodana, Starkiller Base and our new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker inspired planet.
New appearances are also on the way. Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren will all be receiving a brand new appearance based on The Rise of Skywalker. These appearances will be available to everyone who owns the Celebration Edition, and also for credits and crystals.
The release of this update is ever so slightly different when compared to previous ones. It goes live on December 17, with one exception to this rule, the new planet, which joins our planetary rotations from December 20.
Into the New Year
It’s incredible to think we’re already in year 3 of the game’s life. With 2019 fast coming to a close our attention now turns towards what’s next.
In January, we will continue with Sequel Trilogy content as we will bring it to both Instant Action and Capital Supremacy. This includes the Resistance MC85 and First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer.
Rounding out January will also be two new heroes: BB-8 and BB-9E
We’re already thinking about February and March, and we’ll be back closer to the time with all the details on what to expect.
From all of us on the Star Wars Battlefront II team: Thank you for being a part of this journey and we look forward to seeing you in-game over the holiday season.
May the Force be with You

We've gotten the "which one are your favorite hero and Villians to play as" but now its time for the opposite.
Light: I am horrible playing as Leia, I seems to just miss every shot. Plus only one of her abilities goes on offensive(middle ability)
Dark: I seem to work better with the Villians that heroes, but I seem to have more trouble with Boba's mobility when flying. I don't think I am used to the mobility of Boba so I barely can aim or make all my shots hit.
I think after this Sequel Trilogy season ends we’re getting OT content and with this content we’ll get Scarif as a CS map Scarif troopers as Infiltrator class and shock troopers enforcers (Shadow troopers could swap with Scarif troopers and then Scarif troopers become a skin). And then maybe Jyn and Krennic as the heroes and villans.
Let's unlock all the skins.

Guys I'm so sad, but I'll be playing jedi fallen order for a while. I will continue to chat with you but I will be down in the ranks and level and the updates. I want to live a new star wars experience and the game is highly recommended. I suppose "may the force be with me and with us all".
