Battlefront has been out for a couple of months and fans have been a little disappointed about the amount of content that has been released. Many have been asking about maps that have been introduced in previous games. For us, the game has been a lot of fun but can be a drag since there are still a few things that need to be fixed, one specifically dealing with partnering up with friends as well as connecting to servers.
Well, today, EA has officially announced some new updates that they will be making as well as some details about what to expect in the Season Pass. Starting with the free updates;
“The Tatooine Survival map will now support the Blast, Droid Run, Drop Zone, Hero Hunt, and Heroes vs Villains multiplayer modes, and is called Raider Camp.
New Hoth-themed outfits for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, both of which will be available to all fans when they play as these two iconic characters on Hoth – these were unlocked by our players for completing our Heroes’ Holiday community mission last month.
We are giving players the ability to create Private Matches, which makes playing with friends even easier.
The introduction of Daily Challenges and Community Events. These are designed to rally the Community around certain goals and objectives, giving players the chance to earn credits and unlocks even faster. We’ll have more news regarding Community Events and Daily Challenges in the days ahead.
And of course, we are also including some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.
Now for the Season Pass, we will be getting these awesome maps.
Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Outer Rim (March 2016) – Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine
Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Bespin (Summer 2016) – It’s hunt or be hunted in this action-packed experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin
Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Death Star (Fall 2016) – That’s no moon! One of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe makes its debut in Star Wars Battlefront.
Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – We will have more details to share about this exciting new expansion pack in the coming months.”
So a lot of cool things to look forward to. We are excited to see that EA is listening to the feedback from fans to bring Bespin and the Death Star back on the list for playable maps. We still want them to bring back Galactic Conquest and introduce The Clone Wars and The Force Awakens into the game, but that might be something we will have to wait for in the next Battlefront.
