WE’VE TEAMED UP WITH EA TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT THE HEROES THAT YOU CAN PLAY AS IN STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT II.
Battlefront II features more than double the amount of heroes than the original game launched with. There’s 14 heroes in total (with Captain Phasma and Finn to come for free in the near future), some of which are unlocked when you start the game and others which you’ll need to work towards unlocking.
You can only unlock heroes by gaining credits, which you can get by partaking in matches, completing challenges and opening daily creates.
We’ve listed the heroes as well as the amount of credits that you need to unlock each of them below.
