EA DICE has revealed on the PlayStation Blog what the studio has planned for the online shooter Star Wars: Battlefront tomorrow and for the rest of 2016.
"All fans will get free content that includes new maps for both multiplayer and Missions modes, the introduction of Private Matches, new Hero outfits, and more," stated the developer. "Fans looking to get even more out of their Star Wars Battlefront experience can look forward to the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass, which will introduce a wealth of fresh content set across exciting new locations including Bespin, the Death Star, and more."
February will see a new Survival mission on Hoth, a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support four larger game modes, including Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Content coming to the game in March will feature a multiplayer map on Endor that will support Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point, as well as an additional Tatooine Survival map.
Some of the upcoming content tomorrow includes:
- 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.
- Players will have the ability to create Private Matches, which makes playing with friends even easier.
- The introduction of Daily Challenges and Community Events, designed to rally the Community around certain goals and objectives, giving players the chance to earn credits and unlocks even faster.
- Some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.
As for the premium paid Season Pass content for the rest of 2016, gamers can expect:
- Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim (March 2016) – Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine
