Star Wars Battlefront Death Star Launches Today

Posted By: GamerDating - September 20, 2016


The Death Star Expansion Pack takes the battle to space with a new game mode along with Chewbacca, Bossk and a collection of new weapons and powerups.

Today those early DLC earns will have access, 2 weeks before everyone else, to the new DLC including space battles.

“That’s no moon!” One of the deadliest weapons in the galaxy makes its debut in the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Death Star digital expansion. Take your starfighters to space in an all-new game mode, and hop into the cockpits of Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced x1 or Luke Skywalker’s Red Five X-wing. If the Force™ is strong with you, attempt a trench run to take down the Empire’s ultimate weapon.

New content for DLC owners:

  • New levels: Five new maps set around or on the Death Star.
  • New game mode: Battle Station
    A new three-phased mode in which Rebels attempt to destroy an Imperial Star Destroyer in order to clear space for a GR-75 and its brave Rebel boarding party. Then, these Rebels participating in an assault on the Death Star in hopes of rescuing R2-D2 before, finally, attempting to destroy the Death Star itself with the help of Luke Skywalker.

Bossk will be armed with micro grenades, and a visual heat vision mode to see character heat signatures. In addition he has toxic grenades, and escape and regenerates when wounding his enemy,

Chewbacca fires extra bolts and can do an AOE roar to increase armour and damage to allies and himself. He can also do an AOE slam. As he ranks up kills he will continue to fire even more bolts. 

Battlefront's level cap has been raised from 70 to 90, there are a bunch of free costumes for everyone and there are a number of changes to Star Cards, traits and weapons, including the ability to dual wield traits.

Soldiers can also no longer pistol whip Darth Vader while he's force choking them, and Palpatine has been buffed.
