EA and DICE has announced some upcoming news regarding Star Wars Battlefront. A new expansion, more free content and special events are incoming.
It’s been a busy 2016 as DICE has been adding a lot of new, free content to Star Wars Battlefront, while also launching the first expansion pack as part of Season Pass, Outer Rim. As the team continues to work on improving the game, Producer Craig McLeod shares details on free content all players can look forward to in the next few months and confirms Star Wars Battlefront Bespin for June.
We are always listening to community feedback and working to improve the game, and are very excited about what’s to come. In the next few months all players can look forward to free* additions like:
- New In-Game Events – more double score weekends, community missions and Special Login Events are coming for players to earn more experience, credits and items.
- New Hutt Contracts – Unlock powerful Star Cards like the Berserker Trait, Bacta Bomb and Ion Neutralizer.
- More New Content – We also have a couple of surprises in store that we know our fans have been looking for, especially those who have been clamoring for ways to have more options to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront offline. More to come soon.
- Specific for May the 4th – In celebration of Star Wars Day we have cool activities planned that we’ll announce soon.
This June, Season Pass holders will also receive our second digital expansion pack, Star Wars Battlefront Bespin. We’re taking players in and around Cloud City, with four new maps for all of our most popular modes. You’ll see AT-ATs in Cloud City, take to the skies in Fighter Squadron, and even spend time in a carbonite chamber. Of course, we’re also adding more blasters and Star Cards, a new game mode, and two new iconic characters we’re really excited about – Lando Calrissian and the cold-blooded bounty hunter, Dengar.
Speaking of heroes, we know they have been one of the things you most like about the game; we’re happy to confirm that there will be eight total heroes included in the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass (which includes Greedo and Niem Nunb released with the Outer Rim pack) – two more each in both the Death Star expansion and our yet-to-be-revealed fourth expansion pack. More on the heroes to come this summer.
