DICE has announced the release of Star Wars Battlefront II update 1.1, the sci-fi shooter's first update of the year for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. This latest patch for the troubled sequel introduces a new Blast map based on Crait, as well as Iden Versio's nimble TIE Fighter for the game's Starfighter Assault Hero lineup.

Versio's ship features a wealth of abilities to give you the edge in combat, including a deadly laser barrage, dual proton torpedoes, and afterburner speed boost. The Crait map meanwhile has you duking it out in a mine packed full of machinery and crystals after its previous occupant jumped ship.

Outside of this, DICE has also introduced a wealth of bug fixes and improvements, including tweaks to the characters of Finn, Phasma, Lando, and Boba Fett. In addition, various weapon classes and abilities have also been poked and prodded with the balancing stick to offer an improved gameplay experience.
