EA France has since deleted the tweet which either means it’s an announcement that was made prematurely, or Finn and Phasma will cost credits to unlock. Once we know more about it, we’ll be sure to let readers know.
It’s time for some positive Star Wars Battlefront II news! New heroes Finn and Captain Phasma will be added to the game on December 13, and both will require 0 Credits to unlock (providing you’ve been active during The Last Jedi season).
This was confirmed by the EA France Twitter account:

The text has been translated by Reddit user gaddict1:
From the Twitter of EA France : “Finn and Captain Phasma” join ##StarWarsBattlefrontII december 13th. Unlock them without needing credits by logging in during Season The Last Jedi.”
This is great news for those worried that the new characters would be locked behind high Credit requirements.
Make sure you log into the game during The Last Jedi season to secure your free heroes!
