Star Wars Battlefront II Hotfix Fixes Rank Up Bug

By Rebecca Smith,
DICE has released a hotfix for Star Wars Battlefront II. Most importantly for members of TT, the team has fixed the Rank up bug that had hit some players and was preventing them from unlocking the The Force is Strong With This One trophy for reaching Rank 50. Amongst the rest of the fixes, pre-round timers have also been changed to speed up matchmaking, and equipped Hero Emotes should now trigger as expected.
