Better lobbies and ping calculations
It was a pleasant surprise to see multiplayer return in 2005’s Star Wars Battlefront II, both because people still cherish that game and, well, 2017’s Battlefront II didn’t pan out how we would’ve liked.
Better yet, that work hasn’t stopped. This week brought another albeit more minor update for Battlefront II (2005) on PC. Along with bug fixes and optimization, the patch promises:
- Lobby functionality has been improved
- Steam usernames should now display correctly
- Ping calculations are more accurate
Is this a sign of more to come? Hope so! Aside from continuing to smooth out online play, it seems the big fan request is to add Steam Workshop support. It’s never too late.
