While things have slowed down a bit after the release of the Outer Rim DLC, we know that EA DICE has plenty more planned for Star Wars Battlefront owners in 2016.

The developer is planning two more Battlefront DLC expansions for 2016. One is called Bespin and it will be out in June. The other is the highly anticipated Death Star DLC that will make it out to gamers in time for the holidays.

The company is also planning more free Star Wars Battlefront content for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Before that new content arrives, EA DICE is updating Star Wars Battlefront with bug fix updates that aim to stabilize the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

Earlier this month, the company pushed out a big client-side update. The update was the first major update since the release of the Outer Rim DLC and it squashed many of the problems that emerged after the release of the expansion.

More recently, EA DICE pushed out a server-side update that tackles a few other lingering Battlefront problems.

This roundup will walk you through both of those releases. Here’s everything we know about the May Star Wars Battlefront updates for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
