Star Wars Battefront II is gearing up for a bix expansion this month in line with the release of The Rise of Skywalker, and though some think this will probably be the last big update of the game, it looks like we\u2019re going to be getting something else this January - BB-8\r\n\r\nAs teased in the official Battlefront forum, we\u2019re going to get two new playable heroes next year in the form of BB-8 and First Order droid BB-9E. We don\u2019t have any details on how exactly the two will play out, but they have been classified as heroes. If anything, some speculate that they\u2019ll play out like R2-D2 in the 2015 Battlefront game, and won\u2019t be on the same tier as actual heroes like Luke Skywalker or Kylo Ren.\r\n\r\nThen again, it would be fun to watch a Heroes v Villains match with BB-8 taking down Darth Vader.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=bjdhykSNotg\r\n\r\nPersonally, I think it\u2019s great that we have new additions to the hero roster. I\u2019m sure a lot of fans are waiting on 2015 heroes like Jyn Erso, Dengar, Greedo, and Director Krennic to be added to the game, but I guess for now we\u2019ll just have to settle with baby steps. Besides, we just got a bunch of new skins for troopers, and we\u2019re also getting not only two, but four reinforcements with the TROS update.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s a good time to be a Battlefront II gamer, and hopefully the game will keep us satisfied for a few years.\r\n\r\nStar Wars Battlefront II is now playable for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
