We’ve long known that Star Wars Battlefront would be getting quite a bit of DLC as the game has a Season Pass (ad) that costs $49.99, a fairly hefty price tag for a season pass.
It has now been revealed that the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass includes:
4 epic expansion packs featuring brand new content set across the Star Wars galaxy. Over 20 new pieces of galactic tech including weapons, vehicles, and Star Cards for both Rebels and Imperials. 4 more heroes and villains for you to fight as or against. 16 additional multiplayer maps featuring new locations. 4 exciting new game modes. Two-week early access to each expansion pack. Exclusive “Shoot First” emote.
As the game launched with just 12 maps, getting an additional 16 maps is quite a bit extra! 4 new game modes also is a big upgrade. There has been a lot of criticism of Star Wars Battlefront for being light on content. It looks like the DLC is going to make this a much more robust game, although with a robust price tag to match.
We would venture to guess that the DLC will probably included content related to the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. New heroes based on characters in the new film would also make sense. It is looking more and more like EA is going to be promoting this game heavily right through the launch of the new film and beyond, capitalizing on the huge amount of Star Wars hype this holiday season.
Stay tuned for more info on the DLC. If you haven’t already, order Star Wars Battlefront (ad) from Amazon (get a discount with Amazon Prime).
