Will this give Battlefront II's short campaign a worthwhile boost?

Star Wars: Battlefront will be receiving new single-player content on December 13th

Next month a wide range of new "The Last Jedi" themed material is coming to Star Wars: Battlefront II, adding new maps and heroes to the game's multiplayer mode and faction based challenges that can reward players with special crate drops if their chosen faction (the First Order or the Resistance) succeeds. 

What has us excited about this new update is the game's upcoming "Resurrection" campaign add-on, which will bring back Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order, hopefully adding a decent amount of length to the game's disappointingly short story mode. Those who have already played Battlefront II's campaign will know that the game's story ends with a cliffhanger, teasing the upcoming release of Star Wars Battlefront II: Resurrection, though at this time it is unknown how much this new free DLC will add to the game. 

  

    It all starts with choosing a side. On December 5, you’ll have an opportunity to align with the First Order or choose to fight for the Resistance. Your choice is important, as it will allow you to take part in special challenges that will grant your faction specific rewards.

Things kick into high gear on December 13. Your favorite stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the Battlefront for the First Order. They can be purchased with in-game Credits from that week. Whichever faction is victorious in completing the most challenges that week will net a reward as well: a special Crate of high-power upgrades for Finn or Captain Phasma.

New locations and vehicles will also arrive. On December 13, the cinematic content from Star Wars™: The Last Jedi continues with a new planetary map: Crait. The Starfighter Assault map of D'Qar will join as well, plus a new hero ship – Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing. Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi .

Iden Versio returns. In Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Resurrection, you’ll join Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order’s rise to power. These new chapters of Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.

Your choice of faction will continue to matter. Throughout December, you'll see your chosen faction's progress reflected in-game, as you fight alongside allies from around the world to swing the tide of battle.



All post-release DLC will be free for Star Wars: Battlefront II, though at this time it is unknown if EA/DICE plans to bring any more story-based DLC to the game after the release of Resurrection.

This new content is designed to capitalise on the hype surrounding Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi. Adding content that should have arguably been in the game when it launched just a few short weeks ago.

As a Star Wars nut I had to watch the original campaign of this on YouTube and am looking forward to doing the same for Resurrection. I'm also looking forward to actually playing the game once it's on sale for £10 or less.

I'm not touching the multiplayer with a 10ft barge-pole regardless of the loot-box fiasco, I don't play multiplayer games anyway; the fact that it was so abhorrent just makes me want to wait longer and spend even less for the campaign experience regardless of how they've changed the multiplayer.Quote

I doubt it will ever cost just £10, the licensing cut to Disney probably costs that much on its own so they'd be effectively giving it away.

Much more likely is in 12mths time it will go onto their EA Access subscription service, just like BF 1 and Mass Effect Andromeda have done, which is actually quite good value at £3.99 a month or £20 a year.Quote

Titanfall 2 is also on there. It is mad how quickly these £45+ games are getting heavily reduced these days.Quote

I picked up the first one for £4 with all the DLC a few months ago. I'm willing to be patient as I have plenty to keep me busy. I've just started playing Elite: Dangerous...Quote

Well to me, its a sign that it was never worth £45 in the first place.

If it released around £30 which is a reasonable price and always has been, then that same price could hold value for a longer period. Not to mention attract more sales on launch.Quote
