Death Star DLC coming to Star Wars Battlefront later this year

EA has announced the lineup of free and premium content heading to Star Wars Battlefront this year and next, confirming that a multiplayer map set on the Death Star is due to arrive later this autumn.

The first piece of new content will arrive tomorrow with the introduction of new Hoth-themed outfits for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo (above), plus a new ‘Raider Camp’ map based on Tatooine’s Survival mission designed to support the game’s Blast, Droud Run, Drop Zone, Hero Hunt and Heroes vs Villains multiplayer modes.

Both pieces of content will be available for free.

Then, in February, a new Survival mission set on Hoth and a brand new Hoth multiplayer map will roll out for free, with a second Tatooine Survival map and multiplayer map on Endor following for free in March.

March also marks the debut of premium DLC, beginning with the Outer Rim pack that will let players “fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine”.

Three further expansions are also due to roll out between summer 2016 and early 2017, the details of which you can see below:

  • Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim (March 2016) – Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine
  • Star Wars Battlefront Bespin (Summer 2016) – It’s hunt or be hunted in this action-packed experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin
  • Star Wars Battlefront Death Star (Fall 2016) – That’s no moon! One of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe makes its debut in Star Wars Battlefront.
  • Star Wars Battlefront Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – We will have more details to share about this exciting new expansion pack in the coming months.

Each expansion pack will be included as part of the game’s Season Pass, although individual prices have yet to be confirmed.

“At DICE, we’re passionate about what we’ve created with Star Wars Battlefront, and are committed to supporting not only the game but all of our fans over the months ahead,” said senior producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir. “We can’t wait to keep traveling through the galaxy far, far away, with all of you.”
