Modders ‘Pawpz’ and ‘KrazIvan777’ have released a brand new mod for the latest Star Wars: Battlefront 2 game. This mod enables 32v32 custom Arcade Team battles, and brings various AI tweaks to improve the overall experience.
The vanilla version of Star Wars Battlefront 2 supports up to 10v10 Arcade battles. Obviously, this is not enough for some players, especially since the game supports 32v32 battles in its multi-player modes. As such, this mod makes it possible to have grander battles in it.
Do note that you should NOT enable this mod while playing multi-player. This is strictly an offline mode, so make sure to disable it when you play any multi-player modes. Moreover, the AI takes a bit longer to spawn in Team Battles (around 10 – 15 seconds). This is done on purpose in order to ensure that the game doesn’t crash in 32v32 arcade.
While the modders have not introduced any new layouts, here are what the Team Sizes mean with this mod:
- 2v2 = 15v15
- 4v4 = 20v20
- 8v8 = 26v26
- 10v10 = 32v32
Those interested can download this mod from here, and below you can find its key features:
- 32v32 Custom Arcade Team Battles
