‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ To Get Cloud City, Tatooine and Death Star Settings

According to the game's senior producer, DICE's Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir on the game's official blog Tuesday, four digital expansions packs are planned for the next twelve months, starting with an Outer Rim pack in March

Yesterday marked the release of some new free added levels and such for ‘Star Wars: Battlefront, which I will hopefully find time to check out over weekend.

The new content includes a multiplayer map on Tatooine, new Hoth-themed outfits for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo and the introduction of Daily Challenges. All of these are available to everyone who has the game as FREE downloads.

If you think lot is cool. Then just wait to you hear what is coming up for those that signed up for all the DLC packs.

According to the game’s senior producer, DICE’s Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir on the game’s official blog Tuesday, four digital expansions packs are planned for the next twelve months, starting with an Outer Rim pack in March, which will add Jabba’s Palace and the factories of Sullust (as seen on animated spin-off Star Wars: The Clone Wars) to the number of locations playable as either Rebel or Imperial forces in the game.

Summer will see the release of a Bespin pack, giving fans the chance to destroy the Cloud City visited in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, with Autumn bringing what might be the most exciting update to date: a Death Star pack. Additionally, a fourth, unnamed, pack is due “early 2017.”

Personally as a fan of the game. I’d like to see a single player campaign added at some point. Especially given that most that paid 50 quid for the main game are having to double dip and shell out another 39 quid for the DLC pack if they feel inclined to do so.

Each pack will be available separately or as part of the Season Pass to the game, which is currently available and also offers weaponry and other material exclusive to Season Pass customers.

Star Wars: Battlefront launched Nov. 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, with the Force Awakens-related Battle of Jakku expansion pack following Dec. 18.
