According to some of the top leakers in the game, we can expect to start seeing Star Wars content being added back into the game. With May 4th being almost a National Holiday for fans of the series, the addition of some returning skins and cosmetics would be welcomed by many fans of both series.

 Rocky Reels Changes

Continuing with the storyline between the IO Forces and The Seven, there are rumors that Rocky Reels will see some cosmetic changes, as well as new vehicles and weapons being added to the location, with the IO Forces taking the loss after waging a large war over the past few weeks. Time will only tell if this truly happens, or if Epic Games is going to throw a wrench in these plans.
