Modders have added 25 new playable characters to 2017s Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and it includes some proper fan favourites.
EA and DICE’s support for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 ended in 2020, so news of 25 new playable characters should be music to the ears of loyal fans.
According to an article from The Gamer, despite additional voice lines being discovered as well as promises made by the developers, there were many characters from the Star Wars universe that never made the cut in Battlefront 2.
This mod is the way
Thanks to modders PianoBoy1764 and this_guy446, not only have 25 new characters been added, but they also come with new weapons and abilities. Furthermore, additional AI pathfinding, a redesigned User Interface and new reinforcements have been added to the game.

The 25 additional characters include:
- Ahsoka Tano
- Asajj Ventress
