Star Wars Battlefront’s February Update Has Gone Live

Star Wars Battlefront developer Dice has been making some rather substantial and extensive changes under the game’s hood for its February update and frankly, we’re not sure where to start – the list is freaking massive.

Before we start dissecting all of the little, large and much-needed changes though, you’re probably more interested in the new content that’s been added with the patch.

First up is the new Twilight on Hoth map that’s been added to several modes, including Walker Assault, Drop Zone and Heroes vs. Villains. Judging by the map name, expect to be battling it out as the Rebels or Empire in the freezing midnight blizzard that sweeps through the snow-covered planet when the sun (or is it suns?) sets.

Naomi and Bijou in Catfight

Naomi and Bijou in Catfight
Supermodel Naomi Campbell had to be separated from actress Bijou Phillips by Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs when the two starlets clashed at Paris fashion week. The American wildchild accused the British clotheshorse of trying to chat up Bijou's fiancé, Sean Lennon, while the actress was away in Europe filming Octane with Norman Reedus and Madeleine Stowe. Bijou reportedly "accidentally" slammed in the leggy Londoner at P. Diddy's fashion bash at Plaza Athenee last Tuesday. After Bijou jostled her, Naomi threatened the actress, shrieking, "I'm gonna knock you out, Bijou." An eyewitness says, "Bijou jumped up ready to fight but friends intervened before they had a chance to really go at it." Combs played go-between and helped the two to make peace after pulling them aside and having a talk.
