This news comes alongside the recent update to the Squad System, which allows players to spawn on their squadmates and introduces new 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps and 104th Wolf Pack Battalion skins.
Here’s what’s new to the roadmap.
For October, EA has revealed that upcoming hero General Grievous will wear his Jedi Hunter Appearance by default. The Battle-Damaged Appearance will also be available when he’s added and will be unlockable with Credits or Crystals. The N1 Starfighter seen in The Phantom Menace (and that PS2 dogfighting game, Star Wars Jedi Starfighter) will also be available this month. It will be playable in the Hero Starfighters game mode.
Along with these additions, there are changes to Hero Health Star Cards, which will now allow every hero to equip one. For more on this, see here.
In November, Obi-Wan Kenobi will be joining the entourage of heroes. He will wear his Jedi Master Appearance as his default appearance. The Robed Appearance skin will be available for Credits. They have also teased a yet-to-be-announced Appearance for General Grievous coming around that time, too.
Geonosis, the planet from Attack of the Clones that had those weird flying bug creatures, will also be launching in November. This new location, available in the Galactic Assault mode, will feature native Geonosians as part of its “living world”, which they describe as the “non-interactive environment” parts of the map.
December sees no new content, although the blog post says they will be preparing the Clone Wars content releasing in early 2019. This will include a new “large-scale, non-linear game mode”.
The start of 2019 sees Count Dooku taking the main stage in January, along with an additional Appearance. Obi-Wan will be getting a General Kenobi Appearance, and the Coruscant Guard clone trooper Appearance will also be available.
Finally, February will add Anakin Skywalker to the game, again with one additional skin. The 501st Legion clone trooper Appearances will also be available, as well as the aforementioned new “non-linear” game mode.
