Star Wars Battlefront Season pass and free content revealed
It's been two months since the launch of Star Wars Battlefront, you've probably played the current maps to death and crave some new content. Well, good news! EA has finally spoke out about both the season pass and the free content players were promised back in November.
Starting tomorrow, players can expect to see the start of Battlefront's DLC cycle. Kicking off with the following content:
• 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 – these were unlocked by our players for completing our Heroes’ Holiday community mission last month.
• 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. We'll have more news regarding Community Events and Daily Challenges in the days ahead.
• And of course, we are also including some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.
The new content continues in February with a new Survival mission on Hoth, a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Turning Point will also be available on maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy.
In March players can expect a brand-new multiplayer map on Endor that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, Turning Point, and an additional Tatooine Survival map.
