Level Cap Increase
The Outer Rim DLC is finally going to do what the free updates failed to do: Increase the level cap from 50 to 60. And no, you won't need the Outer Rim DLC to enjoy the cap increase. It will come to everyone.
This gives veteran users another goal to go after. Many people have been stuck on level 50 for several months and it'll be nice to see experience earned from multiplayer and the single-player co-op content go toward something.
We're also excited because EA DICE recently confirmed the new level cap "will bring a new 'bragging rights' item to unlock." That should have those sitting at level 50, and just below it, extremely excited. It's also added incentive for those of you toiling at lower levels.
To prepare for these changes, make sure you take a look at our tips to level up faster in Battlefront. They should help you when Outer Rim arrives later on this month.
