Most people reading this have seen Solo: A Star Wars Story by now, right?

Oh... alright, maybe not so much. (Ahem... this story may need to be tweaked a bit.)

With that in mind, Star Wars Battlefront II is ready to continue its Han Solo Season, celebrating all things Han Solo. This latest content drop will include a new battlefield on Kessel, the coaxium mines that every Star Wars fan some Star Wars fans were introduced to in the Solo prequel. This stage will host Blast, Hero Showdown, Heroes vs. Villains, and Extraction modes.

Did that say "Extraction" mode? Indeed, Extraction Mode makes its return from the first Star Wars Battlefront, tasking an infiltration squad with retrieving and escaping with a payload.

Players can also look forward to various bits and pieces from the soon-to-be classic half-decent summer popcorn flick Solo: A Star Wars Story popping up in the game. That includes the Millennium Falcon as it looked when it was owned by Lando Calrissian, as well as new Appearances for Han, Lando, and Chewbacca based on this year's summer blockbuster box office misfire.

The Han Solo Season continues on June 12, with more information available on the Star Wars Battlefront website.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
