Star Wars Battlefront 2 publisher Electronic Arts has announced that it will introduce a new map, mode, vehicle and more, based on the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story this June.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Han Solo Season Begins June 12th

Venture into the winding mines of Kessel as young Han Solo and the rest of the Millennium Falcon crew and much more. He’s a gambler, a driver, a flyer – and an unexpected hero in the making. It’s time for young Han Solo to make his way to Star Wars Battlefront II.

Starting June 12, players can jump into all new content inspired by the latest Solo: A Star Wars Story film including:

  • New Location Kessel – The notorious coaxium mines of the planet Kessel will available in a variety of modes including Blast, Hero Showdown, Heroes vs. Villains or Extraction.
  • Extraction Mode – This popular mode first seen in Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim will make its return. In extraction, an infiltration squad must retrieve and escape with a critical payload while fending off enemy forces. Players will join as either attackers or defenders in this asymmetrical and intense mode.
  • Lando’s Millennium Falcon – Take the Millennium Falcon for a spin prior to when Han Solo won it in a game of sabac.
  • New Appearances – Arrive to battle in style with new Appearances for Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca, all carefully modeled after their looks in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Welcome to the Coaxium Mines of Kessel

Completing the infamous Kessel Run in 12 parsecs is no small feat for a smuggler, and now you’ll get to visit the notorious planet yourself. It’s not for the faint-hearted though – conditions are harsh, and the Galactic Empire is heavily invested in the local supply of the highly sought after coaxium.

Bring your blaster and delve into the mines in a variety of game modes – a hectic round of Blast, the tactical Hero Showdown, Heroes vs Villains, or this season’s fresh Extraction mode – as this location debuts in Star Wars Battlefront II.

Deliver the Goods in Extraction

Hold on, we’re receiving some intel on another high-risk mission in the Outer Rim. In Extraction, an infiltration squad must retrieve and escape with a critical payload while fending off enemy forces. Players will join as either attackers or defenders in this asymmetrical and intense mode.

So halt the goods being delivered to the Millennium Falcon in the winding mines of Kessel – or push your way through Jabba’s Palace before time runs out – when Extraction arrives on June 12.

Pilot Lando’s Millennium Falcon

For the first time in Star Wars Battlefront II, you can pilot Lando’s Millennium Falcon** prior to when Han Solo won it in a game of sabacc. Engage the trusty droid companion L3-37 as your co-pilot, make roaring TIE fighters drop like flies, and activate the coaxium injection boost to get away before anyone knows what’s happening. Make sure to give it a spin – it packs quite the punch!

Arrive to Battle in Style

By hanging around with law-benders and thieves, you might be expected to look a bit rough around the edges. Live up to it with two new Appearances*** for Han Solo, and while you’re at it, gear up for some fast-paced action with Chewbacca’s stylish goggles – all carefully modelled after their looks in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Speaking of style, Lando Calrissian dresses as the sophisticated and smooth-talking schemer that he is with two fashionable variations.
