Star Wars Battlefront Free Content & DLC Info Announced



Electronic Arts has announced new free content for Star Wars: Battlefront as well as information on the Season Pass DLC Expansion packs.

Starting tomorrow, for all Star Wars Battlefront players, the following will be free including:

• 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 players for completing the Heroes’ Holiday community mission last month.

• EA is 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. EA will have more news regarding Community Events and Daily Challenges in the days ahead.

• And of course, EA will also be including some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.

In February, EA will continue to add more free content for all players, including: a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support larger game modes including Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Speaking of Turning Point, EA is also excited to make this popular mode available on all maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy in the February update.

In March, EA will be adding another exciting new multiplayer map on Endor that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point, and an additional Tatooine Survival map.
