UPDATE : EA’s SW Battlefront community manager, Mathew Everett (Sledgehammer70), has made a post on the official Battlefront forums regarding the upcoming January update. Official details alongside the release timing, will be revealed tomorrow at 9 AM PT.
EA’s official Star Wars Battlefront has been teasing a possible content reveal for Battlefront today.
The tweet from EA’s Star Wars account doesn’t reveal any details, but merely reads as follows:
“Prepare for a cold front coming through Star Wars Battlefront tomorrow”

Attached to the Tweet, is an image with Han Solo, and Luke on a Tauntaun.
On the Neogaf forums, users are speculating what the reveal could possibly be. While some are hoping for a new map, others are guessing it might be new character outfits. I guess we’ll find out later today.
Star Wars Battlefront content arriving this month
Last week we reported that Battlefront will receive a new update this month, which will contain free DLC. According the game’s community manager, Mathew Everett, the next update is indeed getting released before the end of the month, but no new detail could be shared at the moment. Sledgehammer70 added that the first drop of free additional content and the Heroes’ Holiday rewards will be coming alongside the update.
As you know, our team has been working hard on our upcoming January update. While we do not have a specific day, date, or time to share right this moment, I can say this update is coming. Alongside this update, you will also see our first drop of free additional content we promised here, along with the Heroes’ Holiday rewards.
The path has been long, and we appreciate your dedication and passion around Star Wars Battlefront. Look for server downtime notifications and full patch notes to come.
More recently, a new video from EA Brasil revealed, that Star Wars Battlefront is going to get a new Tatooine map and new outfits for Luke and Leia this month. The video also confirmed that these free DLC packs are not part of the packs which are included in the game’s Season Pass.
