Outer Rim Star Wars Battlefront DLC: 5 Reasons to Get Excited

Published

Extraction

Extraction

I've been playing Star Wars Battlefront since launch. There are a number of modes I actively avoid (Hero Hunt) and the others are starting to grow stale. There's only so much Fighter Squadron and Walker Assault a man can play. 

The February update helped with its improvements to Turning Point but the game needs new modes and Outer Rim's addition sounds like a doozy. 

The new game mode is called Extraction. Here is how EA and DICE describe it on the brand new Outer Rim teaser page:

"Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point."

I'm big into goal oriented game types and Extraction sounds like it will require some actual teamwork to get a victory.

    So whats so exciting about releasing two re-skinned characters already included in the game now as “Heroes” into this DLC? If anything this should be labeled as LAZY and CHEAP… ohhh and btw… your articule title is very missleading, there little to nothing INCREDIBLE about this release.

      @Sledgehammer70,
      Don’t be worried, you will enjoy playing as a clone

      Your opinion. This update (free and paid) sound amazing! Battlefront (old ones and new one) is the best game(s) ever!

    Agreed pelon35.

    Adam Mills, you are a fluff writing d-bag. This DLC is a lazy cash grab and very disappointing. This game has been a borderline disappointment from the beginning anyway. This DLC, and the next, should be free add-ons considering the small amount of content available at launch.

    I’m afraid that lot’s of people are going to buy this DLC. Which EA will take as an excuse to continue to jip us of free content, and by “free content” I mean what should’ve been in the game to begin with that their trying to sell us in pieces.

    So how much are they paying this guy to write this shit? I mean, I’m a fan of the game but come on…. This article is rediculous and annoying.

    For the HEREO$ DLC, I don’t understand, why couldn’t they put old Obi-wan in there? obi-wan was in Episode 4 new hope.

    God damn, this is getting more disappointing. I hope I didn’t spend $50 on the season pass for nothing.

      Well keep in mind that there are 3 more DLC packs. I personally think that Obi Wan will be in the Death Star DLC because that’s where he is seen fighting in the original trilogy. I’m personally exited for this DLC pack, I understand why there is some hate, but it’s not that bad guys.

    They will definitely put lando in the Breslin one.

    Greedo did not fight for the Empire in the film, he worked for Jabba The Hut

    Even with the lack of content, I still think battlefront is the best shooter game out now. The smoothness, the graphics, the mechanics, and sound are all brilliant. I have all the new games the are out and even though I’m maxed out rank in Battlefront, it’s still my daily go-to game.

    I also am a consistent Battlefront player and am hyped about the update just because of the new maps and new game mode, the heroes are a nice add-on but yes they could have done better regarding that aspect.

    Neither of these characters are deserving of a slot, greedo never worked for the empire and there are just too many rebels more deserving that nien numb, if its bouty hunters for the empire, bossk, dengar, ig-88, zuckuss and 4-lom would ALL make better and more interesting options, plus all four worked for the empire at some point, not to mention high ranking imperials that would be an improvement over greedo, like tarkin, veers etc, but in spite of all of that, greedo i can live with, as long as bossk makes it in, why? Because hes memorable, you know who isnt? His sullustan counterpart, why on alderaan would he be made playable instead of chewbacca, old ben, lando, wedge, even yoda, ackbar and jek bloody porkins would be better options than this sorry excuae for a memorable hero! Go to mustafar ea! And another thing, what happened to ‘no death star’ and ‘4 paid dlc planets’? So far all we’ve been promised from that is a death star lie and onw planet, bespin, where are my other 3 planets ea? Wheres yavin iv? I wanna battle inside the massassi temples! Wheres mon calamari? I wanna see some awesome aquatic levels! Wheres kashyyyk? Wouldnt that be the perfect release planet to introduce chewbacca!? LAZY GREEDY IMBECILES!

    You sure aren’t happy. I am actually really excited for this one, and while the heroes could be a lot better, the weapons, modes and maps will be fun, as always. And I sure as shit know that the adrenaline stim will be fun
