The Battle of Scarif is the last major content update

With The Battle of Scarif, the last major content update for the shooter Star Wars Battlefront 2 is released today. Creative Director Dennis Brnnvall announced this in a community update and emphasized that DICE’s vision for the game after more than two years and 25 free updates.

In The Battle of Scarif, battles await on an idyllic planet with a tropical flair, in which the film film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story served as a source of inspiration. In the Instant Action game mode, the update also gives you the opportunity to compete against AI opponents alone on all co-op locations.

In addition, Electronic Arts and DICE are responding to the request of many players to add more heroes and villains from the current film trilogy. Based on Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker, which will be available for sale from April 30, the update complements the figure selection with Rey with her yellow lightsaber, Kylo Ren with his newly forged mask and the revived Imperator Palpatine. More information about The Battle of Scarif is available in the blog post on the official website.

Even if the update marks the provisional end of the regular content replenishment, the developers want to continue supporting the game in the future, but will now focus primarily on community challenges and recurring in-game events such as Double XP.

Fargo S02E09 : Massacre à Sioux Falls

Fargo season 2 is coming to an end soon … Last night, FX broadcast “The Castle”, episode 9, finally telling the famous massacre of Sioux Falls. Warning for spoilers.

Review of “The Castle”, episode 9 of season 2 of Fargo … Watch out for spoilers.

The Sioux Falls massacre, long awaited since this mention of Lou Solverson in season 1, has finally taken place. An almost unreal event as he had confided, and as the narrator with the English accent reminds us, strangely resembling the voice of Martin Freeman (spoiler: it’s him). A story told like a scary tale.

A massacre that bears its name well: a dozen police officers killed and a Gerhardt family and their men put six feet underground. A bloodbath simply orchestrated by the stupidity of a police captain and the betrayal of Hanzee. As the narrator explains to us, the latter’s turnaround is inexplicable, and the consequences are terrible. As terrible as that narrow-minded, hay-eating Captain Cheney’s plan to ambush Mike Milligan with the help of Ed and Peggy Blumquists. Obviously, he gets rid of Lou, the only character to feel the disaster has arrived.

Lou was, like many others, an amazing character in this season 2 of Fargo, who always knew how to keep his cool and his calm, even in the most extreme situations. But Cheney’s stupidity was, quite logically, too much for him. It arrives far too late at the scene of the massacre, time to face Bear and be close to death … Until the arrival of a flying saucer, which allows Lou to stick a bullet in the head of his enemy .

“It’s just a flying saucer, Ed!” like the point Peggy who runs away from that crime scene, for one of the best lines of the season. An astonishing arrival which could pass like an inappropriate Deus ex machina. And yet, this little plot has been particularly well constructed from the start, with some elements integrated into the episodes, like this silhouette observed by Betsy, or the mysterious symbols in Hank’s room. This saucer, if it remains surprising, fits logically into all this absurd “Coenienne” story constructed by Noah Hawley.

Mike Milligan, absent for a large part of the episode, will still have had the opportunity to show him at the end of the massacre before quickly disappearing to the sound of the sirens of approaching police. A scene full of humor after several minutes of nameless violence. With the escape of the latter, that of Ed, Peggy and Hanzee, the serious injury of Hank and Betsy who collapses in his kitchen under the horrified eyes of Molly, the final episode of season 2 of Fargo promises us another great hour of television. Is there still a lot to tell, and more deaths to be expected?

In France, the Fargo series is available on Netflix.
