EA and DICE shared some news today regarding what is coming up next in the near future for Star Wars Battlefront. In the next couple of months they will add the following free content to the game:
- 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.
Then in June the next paid expansion pack will launch, Star Wars Battlefront Bespin. This new pack will include 4 new maps, new star cards, blasters, a new game mode, and 2 new playable heroes including Lando Calrissian and the cold-blooded bounty hunter, Dengar. DICE also announced that a total of 8 new playable hero characters will be included in the Season pass counting the 2 that have already come out in the Outer Rim expansion last month. That means there will be 4 more characters announced in the future.
It’s nice that EA and DICE continue to add lots of free content to the game as well as the paid expansions. I’ve really enjoyed my time with Battlefront and can’t wait to find out what other heroes will be added in the future expansions. What do you think of this latest update? Are you excited to play as Lando and Dengar? Tell us in the comments below.
