Serious Progression Changes Coming to Star Wars Battlefront II

Better late than never! On Wednesday March 21st, EA is going to start rolling out something called 'The Star Wars Battlefront II Progression Update', a long-awaited bunch of changes to the game's economy - which was the focus of intense controversy late last year.

The latest Star Wars movie and this week’s Star Wars: Rebels finale have given us looks at Force abilities and techniques so different from what we’ve come to expect from the series that some fans have been left confused, if not concerned, at just what the Force can do.

The Mystery of Michael K. Williams’ Former Solo Character Has Been Revealed, Thanks to Michael K. Williams

By now, most of us have heard the wild story of how Michael K. Williams got replaced by Paul Bettany in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

For many Star Wars fans, a moment almost as exciting as the actual film debut is when it gets a home release. That’s when all the deleted scenes come out, adding colour and context to the story.
