Basically, if you want to really prepare yourself for this movie and want to watch more than just Star Wars - get your bearings in '70s crime movies.

Finally, the initial wave of Han Solo Season adds a much-requested mode to the game: Starfighter Custom Arcade.

Williams' theme, "The Adventures of Han", is at the top of the track list, and his classic themes from the previous Star Wars films will also be woven into Powell's original compositions.

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.

Unlike previous Star Wars films released recently, the review embargo for Solo: A Star Wars Story will be lifted very early.

Holochess, of course, dates back to the first Star Wars film, back in 1977, when R2-D2 plays a game with Chewy, and soon realizes it's not wise to upside a Wookie.

Jabba's Palace will be the featured map for Season 2.

Leia's new skin will be 'Battlefront 2's first Legendary Appearance.

More content will arrive in June during the second leg of Han Solo Season. That's a new round-based elimination mode that pits Heroes and Villains in 2v2 battles. Newton plays Val in the upcoming Han Solo stand-alone project directed by Ron Howard.

Revisit Jabba's Palace - Available in Blast, Hero Showdown or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba's abode. Once you conquer one duo for one round, you need to switch to another for the next round.

The beginning of the new season will also bring the introduction of quality of life changes such as improved menus and new milestones, such as Score Milestones for each Trooper, Hero, and Specials. The fun starts on May 16th so make sure to log into to the game next week to see all of the new updates.
