Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Battlefront II on Xbox One

The massive Chosen One Update has now rolled out to the PC version of the Star Wars Battlefront II video game and will soon be live on Xbox One.

This latest update is one of the biggest the game has received since launch as it not only adds Anakin Skywalker as a playable character but also revamps the emotes and the Clone Trooper appearances.

Here’s the noteworthy additions and changes made with this update.

  • The addition of Anakin Skywalker and an additional appearance for him.
  • The addition of an emote wheel which allows players to choose from up to eight emotes instead of the original two.
  • Addition of the 501st Battalion and Coruscant Guards Clone Trooper legions.
  • Armoured Clone Trooper appearances for all Officers added.

You can read the full, much longer, list of changes in the official release notes here.

Like all Star Wars Battlefront II updates, The Chosen One update is also completely free for owners of the game or those playing with an EA Access subscription. Anakin Skywalker and the new appearances do need to be unlocked with Credits though, but these can be earned in-game by playing any of the many game modes. Appearances can also be unlocked with the Crystal currency which can be purchased with real-world money.
