Star Wars Battlefront II's the Last Jedi Season has come to an end. DICE has plans for a new progression system they say are developing with player feedback in mind. A time limited game mode is coming to Battlefront II in February.

Star Wars Battlefront II's first few months were "eventful" the same way the lady who lives with 30 cats is "quaint". Nevertheless, DICE is moving on and they've shared some info on the future of their game and its DLC.

"With the release of The Last Jedi Season, the Resistance's brave freedom fighters and the First Order's imposing stormtroopers engaged in desperate showdowns on Crait over 156 million times, while X-wings and TIE fighters chased each other through the skies above D’Qar" reads the blog post.

According to DICE's data, the players completed north of 10 million quests for their chosen factions: 58 percent picked Captain Phasma and the First Order and 42 percent fought alongside Finn and the Resistance.

The next couple of months in Star Wars Battlefront II will bring a revamped progression system, the Jetpack Cargo mode and a new season.

The changes to the progression system will, as always, be inspired by the famous player feedback. The blog post was extremely clear on what the updates will bring and it explained things in detail saying: "we are preparing significant changes to progression that will address many of the things we've seen players asking for".

Great. More details on this will be available in March. We don't know if the in-game purchases will be making a comeback and in what form, but we'll keep an eye out.

What we do know is that a new game mode dubbed Jetpack Cargo will go live in February. The mode will pit two teams of eight players equipped with jet packs against one another. Jetpack Cargo will be available for a limited time.

The team concluded the post by talking about Star Wars Battlefront II's upcoming second season. Again, they didn't give us a time window or any specific details, but they did say that they've learned "a lot from the first season of content for Star Wars Battlefront II". You have to cut the developers some slack, they've only been in the gaming business since 1992.

Star Wars Battlefront II's most recent update drew inspiration from the Last Jedi and added Iden Versio's TIE/LN fighter as a hero starfighter and incorporated the Crait map into Blast Mode.
