The latest patch for EA DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront II is live with some big changes, including a new game mode, arcade maps, and three new Hero appearances.

The full patch notes were posted today and detail the new features as well as bug fixes, and hero and villain gameplay balances.

Jetpack Cargo is the new mode that will have players strap into a jetpack and take to the field with a rocket launcher for the entire round. The mode is only available for a limited time, as are the new Hero looks, which are Hoth skins for Luke, Leia, and Han. Those hero looks are unlocked by completing in-game challenges "that will be available over time." So you might not be able to get app three just yet.

Meanwhile, Custom Arcade has a handful of new maps including Kashyyyk, Hoth, Endor, Crait, Jakku, and Death Star II. The AI has had "substantial improvements" to make Arcade a more "engaging" experience.

The final change come to the Trooper emotes, with all players getting two default emotes for their Troopers rather from the start.

Clone Wars DLC and character customisation are rumoured to be on the way, but for now, remain unconfirmed.
