The recently released Star Wars the force awakens is a huge merchandising juggernaught, but it seems that disney will not be pushing its content in to the newly established Star Wars Battlefront game’s cannon.
This may come as a disappointment to many fans. The first set of DLC is set on one of the planets in the movie Jakku, its even called Battle of Jakku DLC but is set 29 years before the film so its not going technically a part of Episode 7.
At least four expansion packs are coming to Battlefront, the first of which will debut in 2016. Together, they will deliver the following content:
- Over 20 new items, including weapons, vehicles, and Star Cards for both Rebels and Imperials.
- 4 additional Heroes and Villains (these were not named).
- 16 new multiplayer maps featuring “new locations.”
- 4 new game modes.
The Battlefront DLC pass (which grants two-week early access to the expansion packs and other perks) costs $50 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Assuming EA and DICE follow the same setup as the recent Battlefield games, the DLC packs are likely to cost $15 each.
