The “Star Wars Battlefront Bespin” downloadable content (DLC) was teased for a June release and now, Electronic Arts (EA) DICE has released the first wave of details about the much-awaited expansion pack.
People who own the Season Pass can pick it up starting on June 21, while everyone else can buy it two weeks later, beginning on July 5. This was announced on the EA Star Wars blog.
Since the DLC is based upon The Empire Strikes Back, it features two new playable characters that made their debuts in the film. For the good guys, you will be able to play as Lando Calrissian. Lando has always been popular among the Star Wars community. If you are a bad guy, you can play as Dengar. Dengar was one of the bounty hunters that Darth Vader hired to find Han Solo and the others.
Battlefront’s Bespin DLC also adds new game modes, star cards, and more, all of which will be announced at a later date.
The official description of “Star Wars Battlefront” Bespin DLC provided by EA DICE is as follows:
“Take to the skies in the new cloud car vehicle and journey through Cloud City and the Administrator’s Palace. The Bespin digital expansion will feature two new blasters to add to your arsenal. No matter your preference of short or long range combat, there will be something new to try out in Cloud City. Hunt enemies within the Bioniip Laboratories or carbon-freezing chambers with the new X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters.”
Bespin is Battlefront’s second paid add-on, following Outer Rim, which came out in March. After Bespin comes Death Star (fall 2016), while the final planned expansion, which currently has no name, will be delivered in early 2017. If EA is to make announcements about the future of Battlefront, that could happen during the company’s E3 2016 briefing this Sunday.
