The makers of Star Wars Battlefront 2 will restore Emperor Palpatine to the game a little over a month after they removed him. That will cap several weeks of online discussion about how long an announced “hotfix” should take and just what a game studio and a fandom should do when the community manager is on vacation.

Sometimes it's the little things that bug players. And sometimes those little things are worth fixing. That's the case with Battlefront II, a game with a playerbase that's been frustrated by microtransactions and a lack of new content but at least has had their call answered to get rid of the holograms in the game's menus.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is working to overcome its image problem following a controversial release. A new season of content, related to Han Solo, hit the game today. Its smattering of character skins and a map lifted from 2015's Star Wars Battlefront provide little for those hoping the game will bounce back from its rocky start.
Petri Levälahti, aka Berduu, is a screenshot artist whose images we've featured a bunch of times here. For the past year, though, his hobby has also been his profession.
Star Wars Battlefront II's latest update brings microtransactions back to the game, allowing players to spend premium currency on cosmetic outfits. It's an improvement over the ability granting loot boxes from early access but pricey skins add an unwelcome new grind to a game.
Say what you will of its loot box struggles, Battlefront 2 was a good-looking game whose designs felt very Star Wars. So I thought today we'd take a look at a bunch of art that went into building those incredible worlds (and ships, and uniforms and space stations...).
Star Wars Battlefront 2's new update overhauls the game's loot box laden progression system. One of players' biggest complaints since before the game was even officially out was how hard it was to unlock iconic characters such as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. A new patch finally unlocks every hero character in the game.
Players who earn enough points during Star Wars: Battlefront 2 matches can play as a variety of special characters, from hi-tech Stormtroopers to the Emperor himself, but none are as deadly as the Wookiee Warrior. A new patch has nerfed these overpowered creatures and brought an end to their hairy reign of terror.
Remember Matt The Technician, Kylo Ren's run as an Undercover Boss on Saturday Night Live? It's in Battlefront II now.
When 2017's Star Wars Battlefront II was first previewed at E3 this year, people were cautiously optimistic. Its predecessor was slammed for being thin on content, but initial showings of the game looked promising and it seemed like EA had added the things fans wanted out of the game's sequel, like a single-player campaign.
Now, everything has turned to shit.
