The Solo event will continue in June with another influx of content that will tie-in to the new film.

Jabba's Palace - Han Solo spent all of his time in the Palace encased in carbonite, but you'll be able to blast your way through the alien gangster's lair in Blast, Showdown, and Heroes vs. Villains modes in this new map. Both inspired from their looks in the Jabba Palace rescue scene in Return of the Jedi. As for the aforementioned Hero Showdown mode, the team explains that this is a round-based elimination mode for two-on-two hero/villain battles. In the game mode, once a round is won, another duo must be picked for the next round.

A variety of costumes are also being added to the game as part of this content update.
