A fan is creating a mod that will bring everyone’s favourite new Star Wars character to Star Wars Battlefront 2.
We all want to be closer to Baby Yoda. It’s not enough simply to watch him on the screen with the arrival of each epsiode of The Mandalorian. We want that Baby Yoda merch, too. We need to wear him on our chest. But how about playing as Baby Yoda?
Reddit user Nanobuds1220 has revealed their work-in-progress mod that will bring Baby Yoda to Star Wars Battlefront II. It’s not finished yet – as you can see, his eyes are not nearly cute enough – but it is at least definitely on the way.
It’s not clear exactly what form Baby Yoda will take in the game once the mod is installed on the PC version. However, given that those who can use the Force – light or dark – are playable in Battlefront II matches once you pick up a token on the battlefield, it’s likely he’ll be added as one of those special characters.
Will he flip around with a lightsaber like the Yoda does before him? That’s all yet to be seen.

We also weren’t best pleased with it in our Battlefront II review, saying that it “does a lot of things right, offering a Star Wars experience that’s stunning to look at and wonderfully faithful to the source material, but it stumbles hard on the delivery.”
Perhaps the addition of this cute, bug-eyed baby can make it all better? Baby Yoda is the saviour of us all. Even Werner Herzog fell in love with him.
