If you’re a fan of Star Wars: Battlefront, I know you’ve been waiting for DLC to hit your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, just like I have. That being the case, we now have word from EA and DICE that new DLC is headed down the internet pipeline!
Tomorrow, the FREE DLC content coming to the game includes:
- 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.
In February, more FREE DLC content will be added including: a new Survival mission on Hoth, a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support the larger game modes including: Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Turning Point mode will also be available on all maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy in the February update.
In March another map on Endor that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy and Turning Point and an additional Tatooine Survival map will be added.
