The Chosen One Hotfix is an update for DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that was released on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. It was intended to fix bugs and tweak gameplay elements that were introduced in The Chosen One Update.
Notable changes included:
- Balancing to the Light Side hero Anakin Skywalker
- Fixes to bugs caused by buffs to Light Side hero Obi-Wan Kenobi
With the recent release of the Chosen One update we will be releasing a hotfix this week (March 6) that addresses a small number of issues and also contains a balancing pass for Anakin.
We’re very happy with the way Anakin has been received but we have decided to lower the max base damage of his Heroic Impact ability to 450 points. In addition to this we have reduced the max radius which is now locked to 20 meters. While Anakin should always be a formidable opponent, we felt that being able to one-shoot heroes from such a great distance was not optimal.
Based on community feedback we have also fixed the issue where the damage reduction on Obi-Wan Kenobi’s All-Out Push ability was remaining active. Thanks for the early flag on this, the feedback helped us secure a fix really fast.
We hope you’re enjoying the Chosen One update and we look forward to seeing you all on the battlefront.
