Star Wars Battlefront Reveals New Free and Paid DLC

Star Wars Battlefront players have a lot to look forward to, as EA announced the next several months worth of DLC, including free content hitting the game as early as tomorrow and into the coming months.

Tomorrow's January update includes those new Hoth costumes for heroes Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, available to players who unlock them on the Hoth map. Tatooine's Survival map is now playable in five multiplayer modes as Raider Camp. New Private Matches let players have a game with just friends more easily, and Daily Challenges and Community Events will earn you extra credits and unlocks, as well as provide extra reason to jump back in every day.

February's update includes a second Hoth MP map, a Survival Hoth mission, and Turning Point opening up on any maps that support Walker Assault and Supremacy modes.

March adds another Endor MP map for the larger mission types, and an additional Tatooine Survival map.

The paid Season Pass (or a la carte paid DLC options) also kicks off in March, and the first three of four planned packs have now been named. Outer Rim, Bespin, and Death Star will come in March, Summer, and Fall respectively. A fourth, as yet unrevealed pack, will hit in early 2017. The Season Pass packs will include "maps and modes, Heroes, weapons, and more." Hopefully that means we're getting Lando as a Hero in the Bespin pack, and maybe the fourth pack will be centered entirely on The Force Awakens or Rogue One, with new characters and locations from those films. If that's not the plan already, feel free to steal that from us, EA.


Star Wars Battlefront is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Season Pass is also available for purchase, or the digital expansion packs can be purchased separately.
