EA announced not too long ago that an upcoming DLC pack for Star Wars Battlefront will be set in Jabba the Hutt’s palace. Due to popular demand, we might see the Rancor in the game as well.
Lead designer for Star Wars Battlefront, Dennis Brannvall, replied to a couple of fans about the upcoming Jabba the Hutt DLC on Twitter. One fan asked if the DLC will be adding the Rancor pit and Brannvall replied “ok“.
He later clarified in another tweet that this was not a yes or no answer, but he’s taking the fan’s idea into consideration. After all, the Rancor pit is an iconic feature of Jabba the Hutt’s palace and it would be sorely missed if DICE left it out.
If fans remember correctly, the Rancor pit was featured in Star Wars Battlefront 2 back in 2005 and the character was invincible. Not even hero and villain characters could kill it. It will be cool to see it in the new Battlefront video game, but this depends on how much time DICE has in developing the DLC.
If you really want to see the Rancor in Star Wars Battlefront, it might be a good idea to tweet Dennis Brannvall about it. Hopefully he will be able to relay the idea to the rest of the team.
