Star Wars: Battlefront’s next expansion adds Cloud City and Lando


The future of Star Wars Battlefront is coming into focus. Developer DICE today shared new details on the free and paid content coming to the sci-fi shooter in the months ahead.

The second of four planned downloadable content packs arrives this June as part of the game’s Season Pass. It will finally introduce a fan favorite to the mix: Lando Calrissian.

As previously announced, Bespin will take place in Cloud City, a location first introduced in The Empire Strikes Back. Four new maps based on the area will be included, as will new Star Cards, blasters and a new game mode. Alongside Lando is another playable character: Dengar, a bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader to take down Han Solo.

“You’ll see AT-ATs in Cloud City, take to the skies in Fighter Squadron, and even spend time in a carbonite chamber,” DICE said.

In terms of free content, players can expect new in-game events such as double XP weekends and community missions, as well as new Hutt Contracts to help players earn more Star Cards.

The third and fourth of the remaining Season Pass expansions will arrive this fall and in early 2017. Each pack is also available as a stand-alone purchase. The first DLC set, Outer Rim, hit PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One last month, adding new characters like Greedo to Battlefront.

Battlefront launched with the following Hero/Villain characters: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Emperor Palpatine, Han Solo, and Boba Fett. Keep checking back with GameTraders USA for more Battlefront news.
