DICE and EA have released more information on the upcoming paid DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront title, Bespin  set to release in June 2016.

When the game was first released, the general consensus was that players were not completely satisfied with the content available. However, the recent DLC like Battle of Jakku which came out last year as well as Outer Rim, a DLC which introduced the infamous Jabba the Hut into the game, is definitely getting the game back on the right track.

The DLC is bringing a beloved fan favorite Lando Calrissian to the Battlefront universe and is detailed to take place in Cloud City which was first introduced in The Empire Strikes Back.

In a blog post on the Battlefront website, EA will also be adding free content updates over the next few months, “while also launching the first expansion pack as a part of the Season Pass, Outer Rim.”

There will be a total of eight heroes which are going to be eventually added into the Battlefront Season Pass.

Here’s what players can expect in the months to come outlined on an EA forum:

  • New In-Game Events: More double score weekends, community missions and Special Login Events to earn more experience, credits and items.
  • New Hutt Contracts: Unlock powerful Star Cards like the Berserker Trait, Becta 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.

The third and fourth Season Pass expansions are detailed to arrive this fall and Q1 2017.

“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.”

“We also have a couple of surprises in store that we know our fans have been looking for,” he added, “especially those who have been clamoring for ways to have more options to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront offline. More to come soon.”

The DLC set to release after Bespin is going to be Death Star, however the fourth expansion is yet to be announced with an official working titles or details.

E3 2015: Star Wars Battlefront November 17 Release

Electornic Arts (EA) have given a release date for their highly anticipated title, Star Wars Battlefront during their gaming conference last night at E3.

For essentially a decade, fans have been anticipating the release of a new Battlefront title, however LucasArts just couldn’t bring this request to life, especially since being bought out by Disney back in 2013. So, EA DICE (creators of critically acclaimed Battlefield series) decided to take the reigns on this project by snatching up an official licence for the title, and with the help of their Frostbite game engine, Battlefront was born.

Senior Producer at DICE, Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir commented last night at the conference, “with Star Wars Battlefront, we will immerse players in an incredibly authentic, visually stunning universe.”

“We will give you the chance to live out the Star Wars Battlefront fantasies you’ve always dreamed of, and we can’t wait to see all the memories you will create on your own.”

“We have a variety of multiplayer modes that range from large scale battles between 40 players, all the way down to 8 player modes that deliver a more intimate experience between squads of rebels imperial soldiers.”

The gaming giant showcased a five minute trailer  titled,”Walker Assault,” situated in a place called Hoth.

This is the first real footage to be shown for the title for a long time, however people must keep in mind that this is pre-alpha footage, and can be subject to change.

For those unfamiliar with the details of this game, Battlefront can be narrowed down to the combination of a Battlefield game-style and Star Wars universe to bring gamers as a first person shooter with 40-person multiplayer battles.

Who is hyped about this title progressing towards it’s final stages, and what are your thoughts on what you saw last night from the EA E3 conference? For more details feel free to follow my on Twitter @GeorgiaDanaG
