The first substantial content update for Star
Wars Battlefront II saw the community bestowed with two pivotal sequel trilogy
characters in the form of Resistance hero and former stormtrooper Finn, and First
Order military leader Brienne of Tar… I mean, Captain Phasma. In the next
content update, we saw the (slightly uninspired) inclusion of Inferno Squad
leader Iden Versio’s TIE fighter for use in the Starfighter Assault mode.
Beyond the many faces contained within its
theatrical releases, there are many characters both good and evil that dwell
within the branches of its extended universe, from the TV shows of Clone Wars
and Rebels to acclaimed video games titles like The Force Unleashed, Shadows of
the Empire and Jedi Knight.
With so many races, warriors, bounty hunters,
Jedi, and Sith to choose from, it’s almost impossible not to speculate about
what future Heroes and Villains players will get to pit against one another and
how they will function. Will Obi-Wan bring balance to the Force? Could Mace
Windu seek to break some controllers as well as concentration? And will they
ever nerf Chewbacca’s bowcaster?
