With the release of the new Solo: A Star Wars Story movie in theatres right now, EA has announced a new fully loaded DLC to continue the adventure after the movie is over.

There’s a new map and mode coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 next week, June 12th, 2018.

Battlefront 2’s new map takes place on the Coaxium Mines of Kessel, located on the planet Kessel.┬áSeveral modes will be available to play on the new map: Arcade, Blast, Hero Showdown, Heroes vs Villains, and Extraction mode, which makes its Battlefront 2 debut in the new update.

Extraction mode was previously available in the original Star Wars Battlefront, and offers an asymmetrical style of play in which the Rebel team, serving as an infiltration squad, attempts to track down, and then escape with, a critical payload – all while fending off the Empire forces. Which is the perfect game mode for the events on Kessel.

Extraction mode will also be available on the new Jabba’s Palace map, which will join the line-up in Battlefront 2’s Han Solo season.

BF2 update also introduces Lando’s Millennium Falcon (you know the one with the longer front part). ┬áThis new version of the iconic ship is more agile but less resilient than its other Battlefront 2 forms, and comes equipped with two laser cannons as its primary weapons.

Additionally, its Coaxium Injection ability can be instantly triggered for a long speed boost above maximum speed, while Synchronized Fire shoots both primary guns simultaneously for increased damage over a limited time. Lastly, the L3-37 Co-Pilot can highlight enemies for yourself and friendly Starfighters, with highlighted opponents receiving more damage.

Finally, the update adds four Legendary Appearances based on the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie – Corellia Escape and Beckett’s Crew Han Solo, and Professional “Sportsman” and Raconteur Lando. There’s also an Epic Vandor Heist Appearance for Chewbacca.
