Yes, it’s the content you’ve been waiting for. A bunch of prequel content, including the Clone Wars, is making its way into Battlefront II next week, on August 29th. Probably the most exciting of everything that’s set to launch in just a few short days is the new Clone Trooper skins which will be available for the Specialist, Heavy, and Assault troopers. These can be purchased as singles for 20,000 credits, or as a bundle of three for 40,000 credits. EA decided to break down these Clone Troopers and their appearances, so check it out, “The 41st Elite Corps, or Elite Corps as they came to be known, were a division of the Republic Army that were involved in many iconic battles during the Clone Wars. Toward the end of the Clone Wars, Elite Corps were present at the Battle of Kashyyyk. Alongside Jedi Master Yoda, they came to the aid of the Wookiees on their home world. Other notable appearances were on Geonosis, where the Elite Corps were sent to assist Anakin Skywalker in retaking the planet. The 327th Star Corps were known for their distinctive yellow markings on their armor. Led by Jedi General Aayla Secura, they would take part in multiple battles across the Clone Wars. Notably, they were part of the Republic force that were defeated on Quell, despite the arrival of Anakin Skywalker.”

In addition to these new Clone Troopers, there will be new emotes and victory poses available for purchase. Hero emotes and victory poses will cost 2000 credits or 50 crystals and trooper emotes and victory poses will cost 1000 credits or 25 crystals. There is also a ton of bug fixes coming in the latest update, as well as a whole new map playlist, “A new tile in the Home menu will allow for quicker matchmaking into Clone Wars related maps on Galactic Assault. By selecting that tile, you can prioritize matchmaking for Clone Wars – era maps.” Of course, that’s not all, there will also be end of round screens and Ewok Hunt will officially be a permanent fixture in the game.
