Star Wars fans and the developers of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 wanted to remember Peter Mayhew, the actor who gave life to the legendary Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, who died last day, during this past weekend. April 30.
After the news of Mayhew’s death was made public, some players began to honor the actor by using the Chewbacca character’s skin that has a bandage on his shoulder. This has a special meaning because the scenes in The Force Awakens where Chewie is treated, and his bandaged arm wound, are some of the last scenes in which Mayhew played the iconic Wookiee in the Star Wars movies.
In addition, a good number of players started claiming from Dice, developers of Battlefront II, the creation of an event within the game to honor the late Mayhew officially. Although so far has not been confirmed an event dedicated to the actor, as this weekend was another event, the “May The 4th”, Star Wars day, yes during the weekend has been this version of the character that has starred in the main menu of the game.
Battlefront 2 has not been the only game that you have celebrated this weekend on Star Wars Day. For Honor also made a surprising nod to fans of the film saga with a lot of lightsabers. If as a galactic saga fan you are willing to jump into a new digital adventure, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has already given date of its first gameplay.
