Look. Star Wars Battlefront II is a fun game, despite is microtransaction controversy at launch. We all know the Star Wars fandom is loyal as all Hell, but so is the Star Trek fandom and oftentimes, the two never meet. Until now, and in the best way possible to be honest!
The "Goofy Troopers" mod by 'Benjamoose' and 'Mr Zachamoto' is pretty much perfection. No you won't see the USS Enterprise, but you will don some pretty sweet looking reskinned outfits for those lovably miss-aimed Stormtroopers. And hey, maybe a red shirt won't die for once, we can dream!
To answer the question you may be having, no the mod doesn't really do anything other than stand there and look pretty. But to be honest, does this blend really need to have a higher perfect? With badassery like this, it's OK to just be something to oggle at. Interested? You can download the mod right here for PC!0comments
In other Star Wars: Battlefront II news, the Han Solo event season will kickstart on May 16th and let players assume the title of "greatest scoundrel of all time," the infamous Han Solo. Here's what players have to look forward to:
- Revisit Jabba’s Palace – What happens when you don’t pay a Hutt on time? You end up as an accent piece in his throne room… a lesson Han Solo learned the hard way. This month, fans of Star Wars Battlefront can revisit Jabba’s Palace in Star Wars Battlefront II as part of The Han Solo Season. Available in Blast, Hero Showdown, or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba’s abode.
- New Hero Showdown Mode – Han Solo’s rarely seen without the mighty Chewbacca at his side, and in Hero Showdown – a new round-based elimination mode in The Han Solo Season – you’ll be able to take your favorite pairings into two-on-two Heroes vs. Villains battles. Han Solo and Chewbacca vs. Boba Fett and Bossk? Yoda and Rey vs. Vader and Captain Phasma? That’s up to you, but once a round is won, you must pick another duo for the next round. Bring out your wits and tactics for this one.
- Dress for the Job – We figure if we’re sending you all the way to Tatooine, you might as well be able to dress for the part. Don new Appearances (available for Credits or Crystals) inspired by the opening act of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, with Lando Calrissian looking scruffy in his Skiff Guard disguise and Leia Organa donning the bounty hunter Boushh’s gear and featuring brand-new voice-over.
- Refine Piloting Skills in Starfighter Custom Arcade – No need to fly casual; you’ve asked for it, and we’re excited to add Starfighter Custom Arcade to Star Wars Battlefront II. You’ll be able to hone your skills in the cockpit with Starfighters from all eras, whether you’re aiming to turn Rebellion X-wings into stardust with your TIE/LN or hop into the Millennium Falcon to fly circles around enemy starfighters.
So harness your inner smuggler and get down to business when the new Han Solo event goes live on May 16th!
