Star Wars Battlefront released at the tail end of last year, but EA says Star Wars fans still have a lot to look forward to in 2016. In December, EA/DICE released Battle of Jakku, a free Expansion Pack featuring two maps and new modes. In a lengthy post from Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir, Senior Producer for Battlefront, fans received information regarding the DLC plan for Battlefront throughout 2016; some of this even includes free Star Wars Battlefront DLC!
To start, at the end of January an update was released that introduced a slew of new content, features, and fixes for Battlefront such as:
- Raider Camp Multiplayer Map (brought over from Survival Mode)
- Hoth-Themed Hero Outfits
- Private Matches
- Daily Challenges and Community Events
- Balancing and tweaks to gameplay
EA went on to explain that additional free updates will be arriving in February for all players:
In February, we will continue to add more free content for all players, including a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support our larger game modes including Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and Turning Point. Speaking of Turning Point, we are also excited to make this popular mode available on all maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy in the February update.
After February, the Season Pass will kick in that will provide players with new content through all of 2016, leading to a final pack in 2017.
