10 Things to Know About the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim DLC

Today we want to continue our look at the first Star Wars Battlefront DLC for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Here’s what you need to know, right now, about the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim release on all three platforms.

Last year, EA DICE confirmed plans to release a substantial amount of downloadable content (DLC) for Star Wars Battlefront, their new game that takes gamers across planets like Hoth and Endor and puts them into the shoes of famous characters like Han Solo and Boba Fett.

The company didn’t reveal much until January when it took the curtain down and disclosed some concrete and exciting details. We still don’t have every bit of Star Wars Battlefront DLC info but we finally have release windows, names, and more.

EA DICE plans to release four paid expansions for Star Wars Battlefront. The first paid Star Wars Battlefront DLC will be called Outer Rim and it’s now out for Season Pass holders and anyone else who wants to add new content to their game.

With that in mind, we want to highlight a few of the most important things to know, right now, about the Outer Rim DLC expansion.

This outlines what we know about the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim release including its size, problems, and some new details about a free Outer Rim DLC trial that’s going to kick off soon for Battlefront owners.

Free Outer Rim Trial

Now that Star Wars Battlefront has been out for several weeks, EA DICE is promoting it with a free trial.

The developer recently confirmed an Outer Rim free trial that will kick off on May 12th and last through May 15th. During those three days, all Battlefront players will have access to Outer Rim DLC content. Once May 16th strikes, you'll need to buy Outer Rim to enjoy the goods. 

The company also notes that "while you will be able to access the free Hutt Contract weapons the Outer Rim specific weapons and Star Cards will only be accessible to our Season Pass and Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim Digital Standalone Pass holders during the free trial event." 

If you've been thinking about picking up Outer Rim, you'll definitely want to give the free trial a go to see if it's worth your time and money.

    Hasn’t anybody noticed that the outer rim release picture shows Greedo and Nien Nunb and so these are probably two heroes we’re going to get with the update

      Yeah I thought the exact same thing. But you get to play as them as a “hero,” not just the skin you get when you rank up. So they’ll have their own set of special abilities when you get a hero card and choose either of these guys.

    we need more maps and characters. Its now 4 months since the game has released and no season pass content has been released yet. This is pretty sad.

    I really enjoy the casual aspects of the game, the level designs and overally the gameplay.
    But this is sad.
    They didn’t even take the time to design new heroes.
    So much possibility, such a huge universe.
    And we get these 2 wackos who had like 2mins air time and no one really cares.

    Hope the next dlc-s will include more thoughts and passio. from the dev team or my season pass will be nothing much..
    Allthough excited about the other additions.

    But is this really how its gonna be?
    The vanilla game is so barebone.

    Dude who the hell wants to be Greedo and Nien Numb…I really don’t want to be Liea either but I deal with her… Hero’s should be Jedi or Sith that’s it… Also not for nothing they should make light sabers a weapon card… Fin takes his helmet off in the movie and I can get 20 storm troopers with out helmets. Fin uses a light saber twice in the movie but that’s not an option

    Now I’m hot!!! Just make it like bf2. I know like 100 people that still have ps2 BC of bf2 how hard is it…I know the prequels werent as good as the originals… But what made bf2 so great was the maps and JEDI/SITH. Also like I said earlier I’ll deal with Liea but you got to give us Wookies.

    Hey EA, The addition of a speeder bike race (8 or 12 players online) through endor and another map would be great.

    Has anybody successfully unlocked the Greedo’s Diaroma? I have 7 out of 9, went through and used all the cards again and got all the new weapon kills once more, but still saying 7 out of 9, when there are only 7 from Jabba the Hutt.

    EA is the worst company on earth. I’m not kidding. They spit in their customers face more than any company out there. Wish Naughty Dog would have gotten the rights to this game. They would have put out a better product that is more like BF2 and you wouldn’t have to buy all these ridiculous DLC’s after having already bought the freaking game.

    ea sucks.

    Gosh you millenials are pathetic.. Its not good enough unless its the surface level darth vader, yoda crap that you are vaguely familiar with,… Reminiscing your grandparents childhoods.
    Did you ever think that MAYBE, EA is thinking there are other fans, like say, people who were actually alive when the Star Wars movies were in theaters? We dont care about another game with Luke and Han.. Its fun for us to play as the action figures we still have sitting around, who have names, but never even got to speak in a movie.. Dengar, Boskk, IG-88, Admiral Ackbar, Greedo, Hammerhead, Snaggletooth (yeah I know Ive completely lost you all now, but thats why no one cares about your whining).
