Star Wars Battlefront II 'The Chosen One' update adds Anakin Skywalker

Star Wars Battlefront II is a first and third-person multiplayer shooter from DICE — an EA studio. Over the past year, it has received a slew of updates which added more and more content to the game. However, some of the most spectacular showdowns may be ahead of us. Yesterday, the company announced "The Chosen One" update which adds Anakin Skywalker to the game. As expected, he's facing down Count Dooku!

Star Wars Battlefront II ignited a microtransactions controversy which a lot of foreign governments cracked down on. While EA eventually changed the business model of the game, it still left customers with an uneasy feeling about the future. Not only did the microtransactions impact the review scores, but they overshadowed anything positive about the game, like its single-player campaign. Hopefully the publisher has learned its lesson from.

Hopefully The Chosen One update will live up to expectations. Anakin's character model looks amazing and battling Count Dooku should trigger a lot of nostalgia. The final fight between Skywalker and Dooku wasn't as prolonged in the films, so it might be even better in the game!

Do you still play Star Wars Battlefront II? Let us know. The game looks absolutely amazing on an Xbox One X because it runs at 4K 60 FPS on the machine.
