Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the highly anticipated, next Star Wars movie, and EA and DICE are looking to bring that excitement to Star Wars Battlefront. In a new post, DICE talks about all of the features that are going to be coming to the latest DLC for Battlefront – the fourth and final in the season pass for the game. The expansion will be available on December 6th for all season pass holders, and then will be available for purchase a couple of weeks after that. The DLC includes 4 new maps, which features Scarif, the tropical locale that has been shown off in the Rogue One trailers. There are 2 new heroes to play as – Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic – as well as a brand-new game mode that features a combination of ground and aerial combat.
The other important piece of information released by DICE is that on December 6th, the much anticipated Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission will also be released, as free DLC for all Playstation 4 VR players to take advantage of. Not much is known in regards to the length of the DLC mission, but as free DLC, certainly many gamers that have longed to fly their own X-Wing will be taking this offering for a spin.
Star Wars Battlefront has been out for a full year now, and while it has been criticized for its initial lack of content, the DLC releases have done a good job at filling out the game even more. An Ultimate Edition has also just been released that contains all of the DLC, so if you have missed out on the action this past year, it’s definitely a good time to jump in.
