Star Wars Battlefront 2 - no, the old one - just got a patch

Someone out there still cares.

Pandemic’s 2005 Star Wars Battlefront 2 just received a patch, improving its online features.

The classic release, now over a decade old, is no longer supported by the defunct Pandemic, or its license owners Disney and EA, so the rogue developer still updating the title is a mystery.

Online multiplayerrreturned to the game in October, and this latest patch, delivered via Steam, aims to improve a few features:

  • Lobby functionality has been improved
  • Steam usernames should now display correctly
  • Ping calculations are more accurate

We’re not sure why we’re being blessed with updates to the popular old title, but it certainly makes for a microtransaction-free (if not that pretty) escape from modern gaming.
