Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC Adds New Gamemode ‘Battle Station’
During this year’s Gamescom event in Cologne, DICE announced that the SW Battlefront Death Star DLC features the all-new ‘Battle Station’ game mode.
The upcoming Death Star DLC for Star Wars Battlefront takes the epic battle to space for the very first time. As can be guessed, the expansion will be based on one of Star Wars’ most iconic weapons – The galactic imperial ‘Death Star’.
In the expansion, players will be able to play the new ‘Battle Station’ mode which has players fighting across 3 phases. According to DICE, each phase will have a different objective. Down below you’ll find details about each phase taken from DICE’s official announcement.
In Phase 1 you’ll be flying X-wings and A-wings against TIE fighters and TIE interceptors in space! The main objective in this phase is for Rebels to destroy enough TIE fighters until their Y-wing support can come in to weaken the Star Destroyer’s defenses. Once vulnerable, Rebel starfighters can attack the weak spots in an effort to bring the Star Destroyer down. In an effort to help defend this key asset for the Empire, players along with AI ships will be set up to help defend the Star Destroyer.
Phase 2 will have players fighting inside this iconic space station among areas inspired by the classic trilogy. Rebel infantry will be tasked with extracting a priority droid from within the Death Star. Amidst the chaos of battle, you’ll be able to gain an advantage by taking up arms as our new heroes Bossk and Chewbacca!
And finally, in the culmination of the new mode, players head back into space where the Rebels need to end the battle once and for all - by blowing up the Death Star! Players can become the hero of the Rebellion, Luke Skywalker, in his Red-5 X-wing as they attempt to destroy the Empire’s ultimate weapon. But beware as Darth Vader has been dispatched to protect the Empire's asset in his TIE Advanced.
The SW Battlefront Death Star DLC is slated for a release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One this September.
