on future plans for the futuristic action game, including free content tomorrow,
more free content next month, and details on season pass contents, including one
DLC pack based on the Death Star. Here's word:
We began our post-launch
journey together last month with the Battle of Jakku DLC, adding two new maps
and the new mode Turning Point. Tomorrow, we are adding more free content to the
game for all Star Wars Battlefront players, including:
- 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.
In February, we will continue to add more free content for all players,
including a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map
that will support our larger game modes including Walker Assault, Supremacy,
Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Speaking of Turning Point, we are also
excited to make this popular mode available on all maps that currently support
Walker Assault and Supremacy in the February update.
In March, we will be adding another exciting new multiplayer map on Endor that
will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point, and an additional
Tatooine Survival map.
In addition to the free content we will be delivering through March, we will
continue to listen to our community throughout the year and provide updates
designed to make Star Wars Battlefront even more fun for everyone.
