Please put on all your clothes

We told you earlier this week that EA and DICE would probably be dishing out free DLC for their decidedly fun, but equally hollow Star Wars: Battlefront. That news came via a video from EA Brazil, which seemed to let he information out a little prematurely.

As it happens, the information wasn’t bogus, and there is indeed a wealth of free content hitting the game today. Here’s what you get in the new content, which should be available today.

  • 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 the Hoth – these were unlocked by our players for completing our Heroes’ Holiday community mission last month.
  • Create Private Matches
  • 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.
  • Overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.

On top of that, there’s even more free DLC coming next month – including a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a new Hoth multiplayer map that’ll support the game’s more expansive modes; Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point.

There’ll also be more free DLC In March. Not everything’s free though – and there’s a great big roadmap of planned content coming for season pass holders. Here’s what big fans can expect throughout the year:

  • 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 experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin
  • Star Wars Battlefront Death Star (Autumn 2016) – That’s no moon.
  • Star Wars Battlefront Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – More details to be shared on the expansion pack to be revealed in the coming months.

Each of those will be available separately as well.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

      Words EA uses when discussing their clients. I lolled though.

    Create Private Matches “I see your Private is as big as mine!”
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA!
    I am tired. Hee-hee. Need sleep.

    I come to my favorite gaming website only to be greeted by Nelly’s ripped abs.

    • Jan Prins

      I can show you my wobbly abs. If that will make you feel better.

      • Umar

        I’d rather see no abs, thank you very much!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Do you even crunch, bro!?

        • Jan Prins

          You break my poor white heart.

        • Jan Prins

          No abs? Cool. How’s about…

          • Hammersteyn

            Just marry her already

          • Jan Prins

            Then I would be marrying the second best woman on the planet. WHo am I kidding. I know nothing of her. For all I know she hates puppies and love kittens.

    • Hammersteyn

      They could have shown Nicki Minaj’s Sarlacc pit instead?

    • Original Heretic

      Don’t worry, if he stays there he’ll be freezing to death rather soon. No tauntaun!
