Greedo headlines Outer Rim Battlefront DLC

Unless Han sticks to the script and turns him into a black, smouldering corpse beforehand. Star Wars Battlefront’s Season Pass is really starting to kick in, and DICE have finally revealed everything players can expect to receive with the Outer Rim Pack. Above everything else, Outer Rim will introduce two brand new Hero characters, one of which is the infamous green hitman from a New Hope.

Joining Greedo is the oddly popular Nien Nunb – the very odd looking co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon in the climatic final battle in Return of the Jedi. They’ll both join the villain and hero sides respectively, added to the (right now) limited roster.

The Outer Rim pack comes with a lot more than just two new characters though. Included is a brand new game mode called Extraction, which sounds a lot like Team Fortress 2’s Payload. Rebels will be tasked with protecting a convoy while it moves to extraction, while the Empire will attempt to stop them. This mode can be played across all existing maps and three new ones: the industrial factories of Sullust, Jabba’s throne room, and a sail barge garage on Tatooine.

Along with that comes some new weapons to take into battle, which will hopefully bolster the depressing shallow weapon pool. Out Rim will introduce the Relby V-10 rifle, DT-12 blaster pistol, Scatter Gun, Dioxis Grenade, and Adrenaline Stim Star Cards. It’s asking a lot of essentially two guns, a grenade and a perk, but here’s to hoping they shake things up meaningfully.

I’m still not entirely convinced of the worth in Battlefront’s Season pass, but if you’re full invested in DICE’s multiplayer-only shooter then it’s a no brainer. EA is already making a lot of money from it, even if The Force Awakens’ Finn desperately wants a single-player campaign too. Outer Rim is out later this month.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Stuff him and the DLC he Rodian on.

    • miaau

      not bad. not bad at all.

      Ok, fine. I liked it.

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      Take a like!

  • HvR

    Geedo ?!?!?!

    Jar Jar coming in the DLC after Outer Rim?

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      I’m busy re-reading my Boba Fett graphic novels and Greedo makes a few interesting appearances.

    • Pariah

      It’s Gar Gar… Seriously… People never learn…

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        xD

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Suddenly Lady JaJa makes much more sense.

      • HvR

        So you have a hard G for Binks?

  • Captain JJ the “saviour”

    Greedo didn’t shoot first
    Han didn’t shoot first
    ONLY Han shot.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      ^This

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      If Han hadn’t shot, would Greedo have shot? Yes. Therefore Han shot first. Being incapable of shooting second by way of being dead doesn’t invalidate that.

      This is what I’m reduced too, arguing logic with Star Wars fans. 🙁

      • Pariah

        Woah there buddy. Using “logic” and “Star Wars fans” in the same sentence is dangerous territory…

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I KNOW!

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            May you live long and use the schwartz

          • Pariah

            I see your schwartz is as big as mine… Let’s see if you can handle it.

            *wink wink*

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        Logic????

        BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • Captain JJ the “saviour”

        Semantics.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Is the correct term for your argument. 😀

          Playing a semantic game using the present & past tense of shoot:

          Yes, only Han shot, because only Han had the chance to shoot… by virtue of shooting first. BOOM. Or PEW. Whichever you prefer. *run*

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            This is you correcting me for the sake of correcting me.
            Playing the true Emperor’s role. You’re right, and I’m not wrong, but you said the last thing, so you’re more right ;P
            I know your games Alien. 😀

          • miaau

            Or, you know, right is right. And right is might. And might is uncertain.

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            Now I am uncertain :/

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Does that mean the pen is uncertain about the sword?

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            The pen likes the sword, like more than a friend, but tries to avoid complications seeing as how they are from different backgrounds and although their cultural differences mean nothing in love they know that life will not be easy as their families will not approve of their relationship, therefore in the best interest of both them and their families they must keep things professional only.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            LOL! Okay, you win.

            But I still won first, JJeedo.

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            Bastard! 😛

          • HvR

            Try correcting the guy hi-jacking or robbing you and find out?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            The sad thing is I probably would. Nerves.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I WIN, YES!

            Wait… are you humouring me? Never mind, I STILL WIN! 😀

    • HvR

      So this new BF villian is just going to run around unable to shoot and dying.

      Well not that it will any different to my usual Battlefield game.

      • Captain JJ the “saviour”

        Haha. Yea, sounds like mine too.
