February Star Wars Battlefront Update: 5 Reasons to Get Excited

EA and DICE have a February Star Wars Battlefront update on the way. Ahead of the imminent release date, we want to take a look at five things we’re excited about.

Star Wars Battlefront still has problems. Gamers are still complaining about its lack of depth and problems that are plaguing the title on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. EA and DICE are working hard to address these concerns and companies are off to a hot start in 2016.

In January, the companies announced Star Wars Battlefront DLC details including three expansion packs set for release in 2016. EA and DICE also detailed free Star Wars Battlefront updates including a monster update that rolled out in January.

The January Star Wars Battlefront update is live and it includes bug fixes, tweaks to weapons and heroes and new features for all three platforms. It’s a substantial update but like the game itself, it’s far from perfect.

It’s a good thing EA and DICE are prepping another major Battlefront update for this month.

Update: The February Star Wars Battlefront update is out.

The February Star Wars Battlefront update release date is now confirmed for tomorrow morning with EA and DICE outlining downtime for PC, Xbox One and PS4. The companies haven’t confirmed a specific change log just yet but we expect that soon. An imminent release isn’t the only thing you should be excited about though.

While we wait for EA and DICE to outline a specific change log we want to take a look at a few of the things we’re excited about.

A-Wing Improvements

A-Wing Improvements

Tons of people have been complaining about the A-Wing hit box and shield ramming in games. We've seen other complaints but these two appear to be the loudest. 

EA and DICE introduced a number of changes in the January update but they didn't address the problems with the A-Wing. Fortunately, the developers have been listening and it looks like the February update will sort out some of these problems. 

EA says that "the team is working to bring a lot of these fixes in our February update." The companies haven't outlined the fixes in detail but once DICE developer has said that the company will address the hit box issues at the very least. It's clear that it's a priority and that's exciting. 

The company is encouraging user feedback about the A-Wing and its other starfighters and those who are seeing problems with balance and bugs should report back as soon as possible so EA and DICE can get things squared away with its next major update. 

That's one thing to get excited about. There's more.
