Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass Details Revealed

BF Road Ahead

Star Wars Battlefront has laid out plans for the road ahead through 2016, including the first look at what those of us who purchased the season pass can be expecting to see, as well as straight up free additions to all people who own and play the game.

From the post on the Battlefront blog, we can see that "[a]ll 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. 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."

Not only that, but there will be a content release adding on the Battle of Jakku DLC dropping TOMORROW which will include:

  • 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.
  • We are giving players the ability to create Private Matches, which makes playing with friends even easier.
  • The introduction of Daily Challenges and Community Events. These are designed to rally the Community around certain goals and objectives, giving players the chance to earn credits and unlocks even faster. We'll have more news regarding Community Events and Daily Challenges in the days ahead. And of course, we are also including some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.

I'm really intrigued about the private matches personally, and can't wait to see what the Fist's office comes up with to support them. But the announcement isn't just about whats coming tomorrow, it also includes a roadmap going forward for what we can expect to see.

  • February
  • New Survival Mission on Hoth, Brand-New Hoth MP Map that supports Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron & Turning Point
  • Turning point will expand to all maps that currently support walker assault and supremecy.

  • March

  • New MP Map on Endor that Supports Walker Assault, Turning Point, Supremacy and another Tatooine Survival Map

As for Season Pass owners, this is what we can expect to see... including MOAR DEATH STAR!

  • Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Outer Rim (March 2016) - Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine
  • Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Bespin (Summer 2016) - It's hunt or be hunted in this action-packed experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin
  • Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Death Star (Fall 2016) – That’s no moon! One of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe makes its debut in Star Wars Battlefront.
  • Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – We will have more details to share about this exciting new expansion pack in the coming months.

All of this content will be released on all the supported platforms. I'm looking forward to this game continuing to stay active and fun, and it looks like DICE and EA are doing their best to make sure it stays that way!


On the off chance any one from EA or DICE is looking here are some of my suggestions for content updates to make BFIII fun:

  • Usable Vehicles
  • Weapon customization
  • Character classes
  • Squad insertion/gameplay
  • Return Control Points to their original importance
  • Add more heros
  • Add more maps
  • Scrap BFIII and instead reskin Battlefield IV with star wars
  • Buy back my copy of Battlefront and send me a copy of the game with these new features plz&thnx

So you would rank the game as a...7/10?

The season pass might not have been a mistake. I hope Bespin is as good as it was in Battlefront 1

It still has not got me convinced that I will be buying in for a while. I remain pessimistically optimistic though. I want the new content to make the game closer to what I originally hoped for.

To be clear, I mean on the future paid content.

I have a lot of fun playing the game, however, the lack of a campaign kind of doesn't make sense to me.

Agreed. I wish there was a campaign. I haven't enjoyed it as much as I hoped I would, because I loved the first two. I've already paid though for the game and season pass. I'm not saying the season pass is worth it yet, but it sounds promising

As much as I'd like to get the season pass it costs more than the game where I live which is quite frankly just ridiculous.
