Star Wars Battlefront‘s developers have promised a suite of free and paid extra content coming to players in 2016, and finally they’ve offered some details about what’s to come to players from one far, far away galaxy to another.
DICE announced that new free content is on its way Wednesday, which will kick off over a year of new content. The new content includes the Tatooine Survival map Raider Camp, which will support a number of the game’s modes, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo will receive Hoth-themed outfits, players will be able to create private matches, and daily challenges and community events will start being organized in the game.
The game will also receive free updates in February and March, the former bringing, among its content, a new map on Hoth, while the latter will deliver a new Endor map, as well as another Tatooine Survival map. Many of these new maps and updates will allow Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point, a mode introduced in the Battle of Jakku DLC, to be playable in new areas.
Battlefront‘s season pass has also been largely shrouded in mystery. New maps, modes, and other content have been promised across four content packs, but DICE has finally revealed just what some of that content is.
The Outer Rim pack, coming in March, will bring modes and modes featuring Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine and the factories of Sullust. Sometime this summer, the Bespin pack will allow fighters to play in the Cloud City of Bespin (which would perfectly set the stage for Lando Calrissian to hop into the fray). Later this fall, the Death Star pack will finally bring the Death Star to Battlefront, which was previously featured in Star Wars: Battlefront II, before the series was rebooted. A fourth pack will come sometime in 2017, but no details are currently available.
Players can pick up the season pass for $50 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, but each pack will be available for individual purchase as well, while the free content will come to all players.
