EA DICE recently revealed Star Wars Battlefront II’s upcoming update, bringing significant changes to the Heroes vs Villains game mode.
A representative from the development team went to the game’s official forums to announce the update will arrive later this month. The update impacts several core features of the Heroes vs Villains game mode, including a complete rework of the targeting system, changing the win condition, and updating achievements related to the mode accordingly. Here is the official statement.
You’ve all given us a lot of feedback about HvV and with it, we’re making some changes to the mode.
With this month’s update, we’re completely reworking the targeting system in Heroes vs Villains. Now, defeating an enemy hero will add a point to your team’s elimination score, regardless of which one you defeat.
With these new mechanics, the mode will no longer be a first to 10 target eliminations. Instead, the first team to reach 25 eliminations will be the victors of the match.
We will also update the achievement for eliminations to reflect this change. It will now unlock upon eliminating 50 enemies in HvV rather than be tied to target eliminations.
Thanks for the feedback on this one! This is one of the many changes we’ve made (and will continue to make) to the game that have been based directly on what players are asking for and talking about. Once this update goes live, let us know what you think!
Star Wars Battlefront II is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you are still thinking on whether to get the game or not after all this time, make sure to check our impressions of the title at the time.
