Not only are there a lot of multiplayer add-ons planned, but there's also a single-player expansion in the works. Starting on December 5, 2017, you'll be able to side with either the First Order or the Resistance. Depending on who you choose, you'll be able to take part in special challenges which grant faction rewards.
On December 13, 2017 the game is getting two popular characters. Finn from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" joins the Resistance while chrome-clad Captain Phasma join the First Order. Both characters can be purchased through in-game credits. However, if your faction wins, you'll get some incredibly powerful upgrades for either Finn or Captain Phasma.
Aside from the characters, December 13 brings new locations and vehicles. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" features new areas and the planet of Crait will be added as a new map. If you like to play the popular Starfighter Assault mode, you'll be pleased to know that the map of D'Qar will also be added to the game.
The biggest addition on that day isn't the multiplayer content though, it's the single-player expansion. Iden Versio is the hero of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and on December 13 her adventures continue. In Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Resurrection, you'll join the notorious commander during the days of the First Order's rise to power. You'll discover what role she plays and what transpired after the events of the main campaign.
In Star Wars: Battlefront 2, you embark on a first or third-person action experience in the acclaimed universe. Iconic characters like Darth Maul, Han Solo and Kylo Ren make an appearance in this game and there should be plenty of other surprises across its campaign and multiplayer modes. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 launches on November 17, 2017 on Xbox One, Windows PC and PlayStation 4. Be sure to check out the game if you're interested at retailers. Remember, the title is getting enhanced for Xbox One X and EA Access members can play the game early.
