[Update]: After two years of patches, development on Battlefront 2 is now coming to an end.

As you're most likely well aware due to all of your nearby stores getting converted into Star Wars advertisements, The Rise of Skywalker is set to arrive in the near future. In order to bring more attention to the movie's upcoming release, as well give its players an early Christmas gift, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be getting a whole bunch of The Rise of Skywalker themed content this December 17th.

First and foremost, the update will be adding the jungle planet from the recent trailers for players to mess around with. It'll be available in co-op where you can play as either the Resistance or First Order, as well as in the Heroes vs Villains mode which will utilize the newly added heroes (more on that in a second). However, in order to avoid spoiling the movie, the jungle planet will only become available on December 20th.

On the positive side, you won't have to wait until then to play around with three new heroes: Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren. They'll be included for free for owners of the Celebration Edition, while everyone else will have to either purchase them with Credits or Crystals. 

You will also be able to deploy four new sequel-era reinforcements. The red-colored Sith Trooper will bring with it heaps of firepower, while the First Order Jet Trooper will provide both mobility and aerial harassment. As for the Resistance, they will be getting the new Gunner and Spy units, both of which will be members of the two new alien species from The Rise of Skywalker.

That's pretty much it as far as concrete information goes, so I'll leave you with the recently posted teaser trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what all of this looks like in action. Enjoy!
