Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim release date

Posted on

EA and DICE have been offering a steady stream of free updates to Star Wars Battlefront since its launch, but the multiplayer shooter receives its first major update pack today with brand new heroes, modes, levels, and more for players.

The “Outer Rim” downloadable content pack debuts on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC today, bringing with it Greedo and Nien Nunb as playable heroes; a new mode called Extraction; and new maps on Sullust and featuring Jabba the Hutt’s palace from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

“Outer Rim” is available today to Battlefront season pass holders, and is the first of four major content packs planned this year as part of the Battlefront season pass. Other expansions hitting later this year are set to introduce new locations and heroes — including the Death Star — to the game.

Check out a teaser for the Battlefront expansion above, and read more on the details of the Battlefront season pass. Sony also recently announced that a Battlefront virtual reality experience is coming exclusively to the PlayStation VR headset.
