Star Wars Battlefront 2 1.31 update patch notes

If you are expecting a large new Star Wars Battlefront 2 update with version 1.31, please curb your enthusiasm. The Battlefront 2 1.31 update is a relatively minor one. Primarily, the update will bring changes and fixes to Anakin Skywalker.

Anakin Skywalker Changes

EA and DICE have done some balance tweaking when it comes to Anakin Skywalker. The chosen one’s Heroic Might ability cooldown, for example, has been increased by four seconds. Anakin’s Tenacious Star Card’s health increase has been reduced by 50%, too.

The developers have also reduced Anakin’s strength. His lightsaber damage, for example, has been reduced from 140 to 130. The damage bonus you receive from Anakin’s Massive Strikes Star Card has also been taken down a peg. This has gone from 10-15-20-25 to 5-10-15-20. All told, it looks as though Anakin will prove to be a little less overpowered after the 1.31 update drops. Time will tell if these Anakin nerfs have been for the benefit of the overall game or not, though.

Other Hero Changes

It’s not just the sand-hater Anakin Skywalker that has been placed under the microscope in the Battlefront 2 1.31 update. Other Heroes have been altered, too.

Darth Maul, for example, will now be able to block while under Obi-Wan’s Restrictive Mind ability, something that was unable to achieve thanks to a bug before the update.
