Star Wars Battlefront launched with a pretty small amount of content, especially when compared with other multiplayer only games. However, EA and DICE have followed up with some free DLC releases that have helped alleviate some of the pain that gamers felt back in November. That help continues tomorrow with a new set of free DLC, which will be followed up by more free expansions before moving on to paid content.
Tomorrow Star Wars Battlefront players will receive a free update containing the following changes: “The Tatooine Survival map will now support the Blast, Droid Run, Drop Zone, Hero Hunt, and Heroes vs Villains multiplayer modes, and is called Raider Camp. New Hoth-themed outfits for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, both of which will be available to all fans when they play as these two iconic characters on Hoth. We are giving players the ability to create Private Matches, which makes playing with friends even easier. The introduction of Daily Challenges and Community Events. These are designed to rally the Community around certain goals and objectives, giving players the chance to earn credits and unlocks even faster. And of course, we are also including some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.”
February will see another piece of free DLC hit that contains “a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support our larger game modes including Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point.” Turning Point will also become playable on all maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy. March will also get an update that will add a new Tattoine Survival map, as well as a new map on Endor that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point.
EA also revealed info about the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass, sharing the four DLC packs that the pass will unlock. These are:
