Brace yourselves – three of the Solo: A Star Wars Story™ crew have entered Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II!
We’re of course talking about young Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian, all dressed up with fresh Solo: A Star Wars Story Appearances* as part of the Han Solo Season**. First, let’s have another look at this season’s trailer. Around the 33 second mark, you’ll see the new Appearances available today.
As every outfit tells a tale, we’ve put together a rundown of them all below. Oh, and as a bonus, we’ll showcase the galaxy’s most legendary starfighter in pristine form: Lando’s Millennium Falcon***.
Han Solo – Corellia Escape
Han Solo is hustling for a notorious gang on Corellia and looks the part. Rolled up sleeves. Driver’s gloves. A scoundrel’s most important utilities within arm’s length. He’s a cocky risk-taker, and can take a punch, making him a most able thief in the tough times of Imperial rule.
But Han Solo also has his sight set for the stars, and after getting on the wrong side of a feared gangster, he scrambles to make it off-world.
Han Solo – Beckett’s Crew
After escaping his old life in the slums of Corellia, Han Solo joins a crew of law-benders led by Tobias Beckett. A bit rough around the edges, wearing a waist cut jacket and a trusty blaster on his right hip, Han is ready for any situation the smuggler life can throw at him.
Lando Calrissian – Raconteur
Everything you’ve heard about him is true. He’s a schemer, storyteller, and a con artist. Lando Calrissian is a sophisticated smuggler who knows how to avoid trouble – which more often than not means the Empire – using his smooth-talking wit.
Popped collar, bright yellow shirt, and a large, golden ring speaks of a man with confidence and grandeur. Practicality is of little concern when he chooses his outfit, but fashion definitely isn’t overlooked.
Lando Calrissian – Professional Sportsman
Lando Calrissian knows his way around a sabacc table as well, but it’s not just about winning – it’s also about looking good while doing so. Matching the unspoiled, white interiors of Lando’s Millennium Falcon and made from the finest of materials, this cape was acquired from a tailor on a subtropical moon in the Oseon belt.
Just don’t get too distracted by the patterns of his shirt, or he’ll cheat you in the blink of an eye.
Chewbacca – Vandor Heist
A pair of sturdy goggles is certainly not in the way while making your way across the exterior of a heavily armored cargo train, walloping through the frost-bitten canyons of Vandor. How did Chewbacca end up here? Well, that’s buddying up with Han Solo for you!
Carrying an extra ammo belt, and some 190 years under it, Chewbacca is ready to embrace what is about to become one of the most iconic and heart-warming companionships around.
Lando’s Millennium Falcon
By now, you might know how it all went down. Han Solo and Lando Calrissian went head-to-head in a high-stakes game of sabacc with the Millennium Falcon in the pot. The rest is history. But just like its crew, there was a time when the Millennium Falcon wasn’t as battle-scarred from countless smuggling runs.
Lando’s Millennium Falcon not only holds a squeaky-clean look and a walk-in-closet, it’s also co-piloted by the passionate droid L3-37 and features a highly-efficient coaxium injection boost. This is your chance to captain the Millennium Falcon in pristine condition.
Trust us, you’ll want to give it a go.
Now, make sure to check out all the new Appearances and Lando’s Millennium Falcon in-game, and remember to keep an eye out on this space for more on Star Wars Battlefront II. Also, check out EA Star Wars on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram or join the discussion on the official forums.
