When Star Wars Battlefront II releases this Friday, the campaign mode will offer fans the chance to learn what happened to their favorite characters after Return of the Jedi. And one of them is sporting an awesome new look.

One mission prominently features the most infamous smuggler in the Star Wars galaxy, Han Solo, and it seems like he lost his razor on Endor. That's right, Han Solo has a sexy new beard in the game. Check it out below!


Warning: Minor spoilers for Battlefront II below.

While we already know Luke Skywalker also plays a major role in the campaign, which tees off the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a major way, Han Solo's mission ties into an issue that stems from the prequel trilogy.

After destroying the second Death Star's shield generator on Endor, Han decided to help out his best friend and co-pilot Chewbacca in his attempts to rid the Imperial presence on the wookie's home planet of Kashyyyk. But he needs information first.

Han travels to Takodana and meets Maz Kanata in her castle, where she's serving drinks to some of the best and brightest scum in the galaxy. So when Han says he goes way back with Maz in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he means it.

Maz chastises Han for not bringing Chewbacca around, and Han admits it's because Chewie is afraid of her. He admits that they're on Takodana to get some intel from a defecting Imperial analyst who can give them data on the Empire's forces on Kashyyyk and Maz gets angry, warning him not to bring the Empire to her front door.

Han meets with the analyst and, of course, things don't go as planned, forcing the two to mount an escape while evading Stormtroopers and TIE Fighters.

Maz, of course, doesn't appreciate that Han did the one thing she asked him not to do, but he promises to repay her. After destroying the TIEs with the help of Rebel forces, he and Chewie embark on a quest to liberate Kashyyyk. The game jumps elsewhere at that point, treating Han's journey as a nice diversion.

Spoiler alert: he doesn't keep the beard in the future.

Star Wars Battlefront II releases on November 17.
