    It’s been a long two months since the initial release of EA’s galactic shooter Star Wars Battlefront. During this time, players received the free Battle of Jakku update which increased the scale of destruction on the battlefield by bringing down a massive Star Destroyer mid-battle. This action packed update left players wondering what DICE had stored away for their next update for the game. All throughout 2016, players will receive free content updates which will include multiple new maps and game modes. Some of the upcoming content will take players to new locations in the Star Wars universe, including Bespin and the Death Star, just as long as they purchase the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass to gain access. Players looking to stay on the free route can expect new content no later than tomorrow. Here’s what to expect.

    The first part of the update will allow the Tatooine Survival map add additional support for the Blast, Droid Run, Drop Zone, Hero Hunt, and Heroes vs Villains multiplayer modes. In addition to this, players who unlock the Heroes Luke Skywalker or Han Solo while playing on Hoth will be able to use the brand new, Hoth-themed outfits which were unlocked for all players due to the community’s participation in last month’s community mission. Also being released tomorrow, are brand new in-game features which will allow players to participate in Daily Challenges and Community Events. These community-based events are geared towards having the Battlefront community come together as one to reach goals as a collective, which will help everyone unlock in-game items faster, and earn more credits. Now for those of you who’d rather play with your friends only, DICE is introducing Private Matches. The perfect way to get away from battling with random players and keeping things they way you like them


    The free content doesn’t end there. February and March are approaching fast, and along with them, more free content. In February, DICE will be introducing a brand new Survival mission on Hoth, a new Hoth multiplayer map with is aimed at supporting some of the game’s “larger” game modes such as Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, and Turning Point. In addition to this, Turning Point will be added as a playable game mode for all maps that support the Walker Assault game mode in the February update. In March, an additional multiplayer map will be added on the planet Endor which will support the Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point game modes, and an additional Tatooine Survival map.

    DICE has also revealed a few details on what to expect if you decide to purchase the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass. You can see the details of the upcoming content below:

    • Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Outer Rim (March 2016) - Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine

      I haven't played on PC, but I know a lot of people have put off purchasing and stopped or slowed down playing waiting for new content.

      Its an amazing game, just didn't have enough content :smile:

    I want new heroes. I don't care about any characters from the Force Awakens but I wanna see Darth Maul and Obi-Won or Qui-Gon
  4. Salus
    Are they adding new hero's?
    1. God
      Nothing on that yet, but most likely. There are so many more characters they can add. I'd buy the game if we see Kylo Ren lol.
    2. Salus
      Might hold off on buying the season pass until there's more news on that
    3. ItsMar10n
      they wont add kylo ren. ea has several times answered on twitter that star wars battlefront is focused in the orginal star wars universe

    I love Star Wars and all of this content would be great except for the fact that this game is unbearable to play. I honestly can't believe that this game is such a screw up, it should have just been Battlefield 4 re-skinned in my opinion!

    They better make all the DLC free with how incomplete the game is....

      That would be amazing but I doubt they will with a lot of the people paying for the pass :/
    2. 3xTiNcT
      Yeah sadly, they should just give them their money back.

      I believe they will charge for dlc's, sadly they will find a way to make money.

    Nice article :biggrin:

    EA Ruined battlefront, by doing their usual. Releasing an unfinished game and selling the content that should of came with it as DLC. Electronic Arts the King of rip off's.

    I am sorry, but unless they take note from their own Battlefield series BattleFront will become in the same stature as BF Hardline, we need a decent squad system, a class system.
