Star Wars Battlefront II's second season will have a Han Solo theme


Alongside The Han Solo Season will be the release of a brand new game mode.

Star Wars Battlefront II Season 2 content, which will be available from May 16th, will be focused on Han Solo, with quests and challenges inspired by the character and his closest friends. With that said, it's a good thing there's a new Star Wars movie coming out to provide some of that content.

Season 2 will bring a new mode called "Hero Showdown".

But here comes "Solo: A Star Wars Story", the second standalone in the Star Wars film galaxy after "Rogue One", and it is now stealing headlines.

Actor Donald Glover appears to have taken aim at Star Wars for a lack of black actors.

For starters, there will be a new multiplayer map, Jabba the Hutt's palace. It will be available in Blast, Hero Showdown, and Heroes vs. Villain. While this doesn't necessarily sound like Han Solo content, you can make it feel that way by having a two-member team comprised of Solo and Chewbacca.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for a May 25, 2018 release. It's now unclear if the map added to Battlefront II will be an exact replica of the map from the first game, or there will be new locations and a layout. Thats up to you, but once a round is won, you must pick another duo for the next round.

"In addition to John Williams' brilliant tune for Han, I got five new themes + many other motifs/riffs joining the Galaxy Far, Far Away in Solo: A Star Wars Story!" he wrote on Facebook.

Disney and Lucasfilm are ramping up the Solo marketing machine, with three new clips and a spanking new poster of the titular cocksure smuggler, Han Solo.
