EA and DICE have released a few more details about the “Outer Rim” downloadable content pack coming to Star Wars Battlefront this month, including the two new playable heroes and maps, along with a new game mode.

Greedo and Nien Nunb will be added to the game’s various modes as new blaster-toting heroes for players to control. They join already-included heroes like Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett.

Additionally, “Outer Rim” will deliver two new maps, one setting players loose in the factories of Sullust, while another will introduce Jabba the Hutt’s palace to the game as a playable locale on Tatooine. The map will feature his throne room and his sail barge from Return of the Jedi.

The pack will introduce the Extraction mode, which sees Resistance players carrying precious resources back to their transport ship within a time limit while the Empire fights to stop them. New weapons, including the Relby V-10 rifle and DT-12 blaster, as well as new Star Cards, will come with the pack.

The “Outer Rim” pack is one of four major content packs planned for the Battlefront season pass; the pack is also available to purchase individually.

Battlefront is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
