Star Wars Battlefront 2 may have launched under a cloud of pay-to-win accusations and outcry, but the game has steadily improved in the more than two years that have passed.

We've seen new heroes, new units, new maps, modes, and pretty much everything else you could ask for. In truth, Battlefront 2 is now a Star Wars toybox of features.

With PS5 and Xbox Series X on their way, DICE has confirmed that the next update, The Battle on Scarif, will be the last addition. Wondering if it's worth jumping in for? Here's everything we know so far.

What Is New In "The Battle of Scarif"?

As fans will know, the Battle of Scarif is the culmination of the events of Rogue One. The planet actually arrived as part of the last Battlefront game, but there's more than just a new map coming to Battlefront 2.

You can now play offline co-op with AI troopers, the MC85 Star Cruiser and First Order Star Destroyer are being added, and Scarif and Crait can be found in the Heroes Vs Villains mode.

There's been a reshuffle of Supremacy and Instant Action maps, too, and there are new cosmetics to chase. One such addition, Rey's Yellow Lightsaber, is available for all players.
