Speculation has been abound as to what EA might have planned for their DLC pass following Star Wars Battlefront's release, considering the company has been pretty much silent on the matter. However, in a recent EA company earnings conference call, COO Peter Moore may have offered some idea as to what to expect.
Electronic Arts revealed during its financial report conference call that thanks to the widespread beta response, they upgraded their sales expectations for Star Wars: Battlefront. The publisher also teased a launch window for Planetfall 2.
We're so close to getting Star Wars Battlefront in our hot little hands and EA is more than happy to keep the hype train rolling. They've released a new launch trailer featuring all the heroes we've come to find will be playable in the game, although their situations may be slightly less than canon to the original trilogy.
In a jaw-dropping announcement, EA posted numerous stats about the results of its Star Wars Battlefront beta on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Among the numbers posted, the most amazing was that players clocked a grand total of 1.6 billion minutes of playtime in the beta, making it the most played beta in EA's history.
An announcement on the Star Wars Battlefront blog has confirmed that players will have the chance to jump into the cockpit of Han Solo and Boba Fett's iconic vehicles from the original trilogy. The "hero vehicles" will be playable in Battlefront's Fighter Squadron game mode and will be acquired much in the same method players used to play as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in ground combat modes.
