The Clone Wars is heading to Star Wars Battlefront 2

"In the coming months".

DICE has shared more information on some of the new features coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 later this year, including a map and characters inspired by The Clone Wars.

This summer sees the introduction of a new squad system, enabling players to team up more easily with friends, a new starfighter mode focussed around dogfighting with hero ships, plus a new "large-scale multiplayer sandbox mode" - in which players capture command posts, attacking and taking out ships.

Additionally, once Battlefront 2's current Han Solo season is out of the way, DICE will begin ushering in new goodies themed around The Clone Wars. There'll be a new map based on the planet Geonosis, which DICE describes as the "largest level ever built for Battlefront", and there'll be new heroes and villains too.

These will include the likes of General Grievous, Count Dooku, Anakin Skywalker, and Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi, making his Battlefront debut.

All this, says DICE, is due "in the coming months".
