Star Wars Battlefront II Gets A New Patch


In the follow up to the launch of Star Wars Battlefront 2, Disney restored the multiplayer for the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 which launched back in 2005, and now the game has received its first update in 12 years. The pink Darth Vader works with the PC version of Electronic Arts' "Star Wars Battlefront II", which was released in November of a year ago.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 mods have started to appear recently, so EA clarified its stance on how it plans to tackle the issue in the months ahead. The recent patch added minor improvements to lobby functionality, Steam usernames being displayed correctly, and more accurate ping calculations. These update the game to have a more pleasant multiplayer experience. It seems Disney was the one responsible for the update since they have taken over the whole franchise including its games and are working with their partners to improve some of old "Star Wars" titles. Darth Vader in white probably doesn't make sense, versus in black.

Jack White recently teased a new solo album, Boarding House Reach , and he's followed that up with a pair of brand new songs.

Interestingly, the modder who came up with the pink version of Darth Mader poked fun at EA CFO Blake Jorgensen's statement about "realism" in "Battlefront II" in his description for the new mod.

So unless EA has another secret Star Wars project that we don't know about, it probably didn't turn down Double Damage's pitch because it was too similar to something it already had going on.

Meanwhile, DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II's latest DLC added two new maps and new hero characters, and a myriad of other things. Now if you want Vader in pink, he's all yours in Battlefront 2's PC version. "No offense to pink, but I don't think that's right in the canon", he said.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
