My new mod, that will add over 50 new mod heroes, and over 80 unique hero skins, randomly chosen each time, into Star Wars Battlefront II.

After several months of work, I’m excited to announce my latest mod: Heroes Of The Galaxy! This mod will replace the stock Jedi class with a whole array of different jedi and heroes created by the modding community. These heroes come from the original and prequel trilogies, the Clone Wars TV series, The Bad Batch, Star Wars Rebels, Rogue One, and Solo: A Star Wars Story. In total, there are 51 new characters added to the game, and 85 unique skins.

The hero loaded into your game will be randomly selected each time, allowing for more unique gameplay. The heroes will change for any of the following: all the stock maps, the stock Hero Assault on Mos Eisley, and almost all mod maps where the modder has used stock heroes. It will also work for most Hero Assault maps, but again only where the modder has used mostly stock heroes. Any maps where the modder has used their own mod heroes will remain unaffected. It should also work for Galactic Conquest mode, and will work with most of my Galactic Conquest mods.

Not only that, you’ll be able to decide which groups of heroes you play with. For example, if you’ve never watched Star Wars Rebels and aren’t interested in having those characters in the game, you’ll be able to remove the file associated with Rebels. You’ll be able to choose, by the download, whether or not to have the AI play as the heroes, or leave them exclusively for you (though I personally recommend the former, to get the full enjoyment of the other team having their mod hero).

And for experienced modders, my mod will offer expansion capacity for you to add in your own heroes! This may be a little more complicated than normal hero creation, as they will need to be formatted in the correct way for my mod to read them into the game. Full instructions will be included at the time of release. I may also add expansion packs in the future as more hero conversions are made.

I am very nearly completed with the mod, and I expect to have it released within a few weeks, depending on how much free time I get to work on it. The main jobs I have left to do are localizing and writing up the full credits list, which due to how many heroes are included is pretty extensive. Hopefully this teaser has got you excited for the release though, and I hope to share more with you as I get closer to the release.

This is a fantastic idea! I love it so much! Will you be able to still play multiplayer online with this mod or will you need to remove it beforehand?

Thank you, I’m excited too! It will only work with single player, but there’ll be no need to remove it for multiplayer, the mod will automatically disable in multiplayer

This looks super cool. Will there be a toggle for it if you want to go back to stock or will it mean moving files every time? Also will the stock characters be in the random rotation as well?

Sadly, no toggle, as far as I’ve been able to tell the only way to implement something like that into the game is to completely rebuild it, like with Anakin’s remaster. Same way you can’t toggle mod maps on and off. The stock characters will remain in rotation however

Cool mod!!! You will add characters from Mandalorian, Jedi Fallen Order, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi Wan series?

Probably not Mandalorian or Boba Fett as they’re set after the GCW era and I’m sticking with only the game’s stock eras. Same reason I don’t plan to add Old Republic era heroes. But Obi Wan and Jedi, yes I plan on adding them, but I’m not a modeller so until people release more assets from those two, there’s nothing I can do for now
