Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Old Republic DLC, and Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes – All the news from E3

E3 2015 opened with a bang. 2 great conferences that kept us gaming fans on the edge of our seats. Starting at just 1:00 PM PDT was the EA conference. This year, we the Star Wars fans, will finally be able to embark on an epic looking journey in Star Wars Old Republic in the newest DLC. Knights of The Fallen Empire.

Next we got to see a mobile game coming out later this year, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Not much was shown, besides the fact you can collect and play with all your favorite characters from the Star Wars Trilogies.

Finally, we get to revisit one of our childhood games, Star Wars Battlefront.
