Star Wars Battlefront 2 gets Droidekas this month

Rollies with my Kenobi.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 gets Droidekas this month, DICE has announced.

The pesky destroyers arrive in the game on 26th June as part of the Where are those Droidekas? update.

For those unfamiliar, Droidekas were first seen taking on Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. They're pretty powerful droids - so powerful in fact that Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan peg it when they turn up.

Droidekas have appeared in Star Wars video games in the past, of course, but this is their debut appearance in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront 2. Here's the official blurb, per the Battlefront website:

"One of the most feared droids finally joins the Separatist army, wielding twin blasters and personal deflector shield generators, making them a formidable foe for anyone that faces off against them in combat. Destructive weaponry and a powerful shield aren't their only characteristics, as their ability to transform and swiftly relocate has become synonymous with them."

And here's a glimpse at how they'll look in the game:

Meanwhile, Battlefront 2 is also getting a new planet, Felucia, later in 2019. This jungle world is lifted from the Clone Wars era and is built for the Capital Supremacy mode. Here's some art:

It's nice to see DICE continue to support Battlefront 2 during its second year of life. While the game suffered a disastrous launch back in November 2017 and sparked a wave of government attention on loot boxes and ethically-dubious progression systems, DICE has stuck with Battlefront 2 and, at this point, it looks like it's in a good place.
