Star Wars Battlefront DLC: 10 Things We Really Want

EA and DICE recently confirmed some of their Star Wars Battlefront DLC plans though many details remain in the shadows. While we wait for the next round of announcements, we want to share a few things we would really love to see included in upcoming Star Wars Battlefront DLC.

Last year’s free Battle of Jakku DLC release was just a taste of things to come. EA and DICE plan to enhance Star Wars Battlefront with downloadable content that delivers new weapons, Star Cards and more to Xbox One, PS4 and PC gamers.

The companies are starting with a bit of free of DLC. EA and DICE just rolled out a January update that brings new outfits, private matches, new maps, and more. Next month it will roll out a free February update that delivers new maps and some improvements to Turning Point.

These free updates will continue to roll out over the course of the year, free of charge, to all three platforms.

Star-Wars-5

EA and DICE are also planning to roll out four paid Star Wars Battlefront expansions. This paid Battlefront DLC breaks down like this:

  • Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim (March 2016) – Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine
  • Star Wars Battlefront Bespin (Summer 2016) – It’s hunt or be hunted in this action-packed experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin
  • Star Wars Battlefront Death Star (Fall 2016) – That’s no moon! One of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe makes its debut in Star Wars Battlefront.
  • Star Wars Battlefront Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – We will have more details to share about this exciting new expansion pack in the coming months.

For the moment, that’s all we know about these big expansion packs.

While we wait, I want to share a few things I’d love to see emerge in these four expansion packs for Star Wars Battlefront DLC. Some of these appear to be locks, others not so much.

These Heroes & Villains

These Heroes & Villains

EA is promising "4 more heroes and villains for you to fight as or against" and I have a pretty good feeling that we're going to see some classic favorites emerge over the next year or so. 

At this point, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian seem like locks for the Battlefront DLC. The Bespin expansion pack is focused on Cloud City and that was Lando's base of operations.

Chewy's already been spotted in the game and he's one of the series' main characters. I can't see EA and DICE leaving him out. And yes I would love to take down Boba Fett using Chewbacca and a bow. 

There are three other characters that I'd love to see emerge in the upcoming expansion packs or, if we're lucky, the free DLC. 

One, Yoda. He's rumored to be in the game but nothing is confirmed yet. Yoda's size and firepower would make him an ideal hero across all game types. 

Two, Greedo. Everybody's favorite Rodian bounty hunter would make a solid addition to the Outer Rim expansion which includes a visit to Jabba the Hutt's palace. 

Three, Grand Moff Tarkin. He's not a Jedi but he's evil and I'd love to see him make an apperance as a villain in the Death Star expansion pack.

    I’d like to see IG88 and some of the other bounty hunters as unlock able skins to fight on empire side. A game mode where stormtroopers raid a captured corvette and have to board it and capture droids/stolen plans before a time limit is up (in droids escape via a jettisoned escape pod) would be a great game mode. A lando or greedo or tarkin hero sounds great, but honestly hero battles are least favorite aspect of BF. With recent patch and it’s nerfs, new blasters is no longer a desirable prospect, as these weapons will likely be underpowered or “balanced”. Just give us new maps and fix spawning issues and we’re good. Easter eggs are fun.

    I think there should be more skins and heros to go along

    I agree with more skins. Its seemingly an easy upgrade for them. Original trilogy still has so much content available that remains untouched.

    Secondly, I’d love to see EA/Dice break out of the conventional Empire vs Rebels (only) dynamic. How about Sandpeople vs Jabba’s Gangsters? Bounty Hunters vs Smugglers? Stormtroopers vs Bespin Guards, or Mos Eisley Rogues? Jawas vs Droids? many possibilities..

    Well considering their are only two Hero/Villains with a lightsaber I believe that they will definitely focus on a new character that appeals to everyone. I would say Yoda or Obi-Wan (New Hope) will be added. I would rather see IG-88 or Bosk rather than Greedo. I feel as if this BF doesn’t focus on the real thing people want. A lightsaber. Jedis and Siths. But with DICE focusing on the original trilogy they don’t have any Villains to add with a lightsaber. Maybe give Palpatine one? And add Yoda or Ben. Definitely would like to see Chewbacca added as well. If Grand Moff Tarkin is added I don’t think the players will be satisfied at all. I know I wouldn’t. Not a very descriptive type of Villain. All he did was command an imperial star cruiser. DICE should listen to the fans. There are great ideas out there that can make this game even better. Looking forward to all of the new upcoming DLC!

    Bleh. This whole piece is written in the first person, I’d say a more accurate title would be, “10 Things *I* Really Want to See etc.”
    You want to see Greedo as a hero? That sounds like something EA would think was a good idea. By that I mean I think that’s a terrible idea. I, and I suspect thousands of other people, would be pissed if they made Greedo a hero. Who in creation is a fan of Greedo? Whoever wanted to play as Greedo in a video game? People want to play as Rodians, sure, but Greedo?
    I wouldn’t count on them remastering the old maps, unless they’re planning on reviving old game modes. I wouldn’t bet on that either. Forgive me, but this is a terrible article.

    For skins, I would like to see a jabbas palace lando Leah and Luke or a chewy on cloud city with the broken down c3po on his back or clone trooper Luke and Han for Death Star

    Yavin IV appeared in A New Hope, not Empire.
