‘Star Wars: Battlefront II’ “Cooperation Update” Adds Felucia, Clone Commandos, Instant Action, and New Co-Op Mode

Star Wars: Battlefront II had a rocky start but the game has come leaps and bounds since its launch. On September 25th, this will be more evident than ever as DICE are rolling out a gigantic update.

New Map – Felucia

The latest community transmission covers everything you need to know about the newest Capital Supremacy map.

“The Separatists’ invasion of Felucia is nearing its end. With only a single, powerful vehicle left to cover the evacuation of a Felucian farming community, the clones struggle to maintain their last line of defense long enough for Republic transports to collect a large cache of valuable medicinal plants from the village.”

“As the droids advance towards the clones’ position, the squad opts to go on the offensive and destroy the dreadnought responsible for the attack. The droids have a plan of their own, however: Ensure the Republic can’t escape with the plants by bringing down their Venator.”

The map is called ‘Tagata’ which is a region of Felucia and it sports five command posts. These are:

  1. Village
  2. Sarlacc
  3. Farm
  4. Caves
  5. Swamp

New Reinforcement – Clone Commando

DICE recently implemented the long-awaited Droideka as a Separatist reinforcement. However, fans had also been desperate to see the Clone Commandos as a Galactic Republic class.

They will be diving into the battlefield headfirst with DC-17m’s in hand which boost both a rifle and grenade launcher mode. They have three abilities which are: the anti-armor grenade attachment for the DC-17m; ‘Battle Focus’ which reduces damage taken by 25% for the Commandos and nearby allies; ‘Repulsor Blast’ which knocks down foes in close proximity.

New Game Mode – Instant Action

The latest game mode being implemented into Star Wars: Battlefront II is an offline singleplayer Arcade mode which goes by the same name as the one from the original Battlefront II.

According to battlefront.fandom.com, the new mode will have “the player fight alongside a team of AI bots against another team of AI bots” and these AI can play as reinforcements, vehicles, and heroes.

Much like Capital Supremacy, “both teams will fight for majority control over five Command Posts” but, unlike CS, there is no second ship phase. Instead, when a team who controls most of the posts reaches a score of 100%, they win.

There’s not much detail on the new co-op mode but it will be playable on September the 25th.
