First Star Wars Battlefront DLC takes players to the Outer Rim0 Comments
After two weeks of exclusivity for season pass owners, Star Wars Battlefront’s first expansion called Outer Rim is available for anyone to purchase. This expansion adds two new characters: the smuggler Nien Nunb, a friend of Lando Calrissian who makes an appearance in Return of the Jedi, and Greedo, the bounty hunter that Han Solo kills in the Mos Eisley Cantina in A New Hope.
Outer Rim will bring with it four new multiplayer maps – SororSuub Refinery, SororSuub Pipelines, Jabba’s Palace, and Palace Garage. It will also add new weapons including the Scatter Gun and Dioxis Grenade, as well as a new game mode called Extraction, which will have the Rebels extracting shipments to their transport ship while the Empire’s Stormtroopers try to stop them.
Outer Rim is the first of four planned expansions for EA’s Star Wars Battlefront, and will be followed up by Bespin this summer and Death Star this Fall. The last expansion will be released in 2017 and has not yet been announced.
