'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Clip: When Han Met Lando

Star Wars Battlefront II is now available on the PlayStation 4.

Speaking more about the incoming seasonal content, DICE has confirmed the Han Solo Season will span two months and include a new two-versus-two game mode, Hero Showdown. Ahead of the movie's release on May 25, Star Wars: Battlefront II will launch a Han Solo season.

The trailers look good, and like all Star Wars movies, people are going to show up, but apparently we're going to have to wait and see if critics and audiences fall in love with the prequel version of the character.

It's believed that the soundtrack is organized chronologically like most Star Wars soundtracks have done in the past.

For starters, there will be a new multiplayer map, Jabba the Hutt's palace.

Just like the tie-in collections, Howard said he went back to the '70s for some inspiration, name-checking Bullitt from 1968 (starring Steve McQueen, who has a very Han Solo aesthetic).

Jabba's Palace: The ugly one's place of residence will be added to the game and available in Blast, Hero Showdown or Heroes vs Villains. Similarly, Leia will get a Legendary in-game appearance based on her Boushh disguise. Using the classic partnership of Han and Chewbacca as a basis, Battlefront II players will be able to mix and match canon-breaking duos like Darth Vader and Captain Phasma vs. Finn and Yoda.

It came as the screen star, writer and musician - otherwise known as Childish Gambino - also made an impact with a newly-released music video addressing gun violence in America. The final track of the Solo soundtrack is called "Dice and Roll", which seems to point at the Millennium Falcon being won through a dice game as opposed to the Sabacc card game that we have seen in previous promotional footage.

"In addition to John Williams' brilliant tune for Han, I got five new themes + many other motifs/riffs joining the Galaxy Far, Far Away in Solo: A Star Wars Story!" he wrote on Facebook.
