Star Wars Battlefront 2 update 1.24 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC is now available for players. According to the official Battlefront 2 1.24 patch notes, the new update brings Count Dooku and Geonosis changes. Geonosis is now available in a selection of other game modes, including Arcade. Apart from this, Battlefront 2 version 1.24 resolves issues related to the Squad System, server performance, game client bugs, and more.
Previously, a big update was released with new features and changes. Unfortunately, since the release of this update, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 patch 1.23 update is expected to fix all these issues.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 Update 1.24 patch notes
- Count Dooku is now playable and unlocked via Credits. Count Dooku comes with three abilities: Lightning Stun, Expose Weakness, and Duelist. A master duelist, Count Dooku excels at close combat with a lightsaber and can deflect lightsabers easier than other lightsaber heroes. While his skills with a lightsaber are to be feared, opponents will also be wise to avoid his Lightning Stun ability, where he can quickly unleash a blast of lightning. Opponents caught in the blast radius will be thrown to the ground. Calculating and confident, you should approach Count Dooku with caution. Count Dooku will be available to unlock via credits only, costing 35,000.
- Geonosis is now available on Blast, Heroes Vs Villains and Custom Arcade.
