Star Wars Battlefront To Get More Free Content In Coming Months


Star Wars Battlefront released last week and it's scheduled to receive its first free DLC pack on December 1, at least for the customers who pre-ordered the game (the others will have to wait December 8).

The first Star Wars Battlefront DLC will introduce the Battle of Jakku, with a brand new mode (detailed in our earlier post) and two new maps, Graveyard of Giants (available in Turning Point, Walker Assault, Supremacy and Fighter Squadron modes) and Goazan Badlands (available in Blast, Cargo, Drop Zone, Droid Run, Hero Hunt and Heroes vs Villains).

However, this will not be the only free content coming to Star Wars Battlefront. Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios, promised as much in a blog post published yesterday:

Best of all, this is just the beginning. We have lots of new content coming over the next several months that will provide new ways to immerse yourself in Star Wars.

In two weeks, The Battle of Jakku launches. Taking place 29 years before the events of Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™, The Battle of Jakku is a free DLC pack* that adds two new maps (including one for popular modes like Walker Assault and Supremacy) and a new mode to the game. The coolest thing is that it’s the only place you’ll be able to experience the pivotal events that help shape the look of one of the next iconic planets in the Star Wars universe. We can’t wait for you to step onto Jakku for the first time with us.

Of course, we are also planning to support Star Wars Battlefront with new content well into the future. We will be adding more of what you love about the game, like new maps and Star Cards, for free in the coming months, in addition to all of the content we have coming with Season Pass. We’ll have more to share soon.
