Welcome friends and comrades in arms.  We are here to honor those we've lost in the long wait for the next Star Wars Battlefront.  To those who come from the old Battlefront Gang I welcome you back to our community which sprang forth from the old Xbox360gamingworld site.  The idea is to bring the old group together as well as some new people who may have enjoyed the original Battlefront I & II.  With the new movies I expect us to have plenty of content to bring to our community.  Feel free to explore around the site, create a gallery and post in the threads.

Best Regards,

Pogue

The first Star Wars Battlefront DLC is the Outer Rim pack.  Outer Rim consists of 4 new maps set on Sullust and Tatooine as well as a new mode called Extraction.  The new mode calls for Rebel forces to take resources to a transport ship before the time runs out.  The Tatooine maps consist of a throwback to the Jabba's Palace map of the old Battlefront games.  The DLC also includes two new playable "heroes": Greedo the Bounty Hunter and Nien Nunb.  There are also several new weapons included.  The DLC launches on March 22nd.

The first patch for Star Wars Battlefront includes the following updates:

  • Game modes balancing tweaks
  • HUD UI adjustments
  • Audio optimizations
  • General crash and stability fixes
  • Online traffic performance improvements
  • Various text fixes for all languages
  • General bug fixes for both Missions and Multiplayer
  • Legacy Controls should now work as intended

The battle of Jakku DLC will include not only a new map but a new 40-player mode called Turning Point.  In Turning Point, Rebels must attack Empire bases and capture them.  There are three bases on a map.  Each time a base is captured time is added to the clock and new bases open up.  The final goal is to capture each base where a stand off then takes place.  Each base will become more challenging to capture as matches are played.

With Star Wars Battlefront launching on 11/17/2015 there will be 6 playable heroes at launch.  They include 3 for the Rebels (Leia, Luke and Han Solo) as well as 3 for the Empire (Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Emporer Palpatine).  These characters are directly playable in two modes: Heroes Vs. Villains and Hero Hunt.  You can also play as the heroes in the Walker Assault and Supremecy modes through collectible tokens such as supply drops.  When activated you will be able to play as the character for as long as you can survive.

EA has put up a new section on their website for Star Wars Battlefront which includes an interactive tour of the planets that will be playable in the game.  At launch there will be 12 multiplayer maps with an additional free DLC for the planet Jakku.  Thus far the planets included are: Tatoine, Hoth, Sullust and Endor.  You can view the guide here: http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront/planets
