Mat Everett of DICE announced on Twitter that the March free content update will release before the Outer Rim DLC. While Season Pass holders will get early access to Outer Rim, it’s still uncertain if this free update will come before the early access or before anyone at all sees the Outer Rim. This is good news for many players, as some speculated there would be no new free content with the DLC dropping in the same month. So that’s good news to see there will be new content all around.

There has also been some chatter from Dennis Brännvall, lead designer at DICE, about new heroes and other details from the game and the DLCs. He also confirmed that you will be able to use the new heroes on the old maps, as well as the old heroes on the new maps.
See the latest video about the free game update:
Since launch, the Force has been strong with Star Wars Battlefront. Players have celebrated Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™ by exploring the all-new planet and game mode with the Battle of Jakku. Single and multiplayer have both been updated to include new missions, maps and hero outfits.
Below are the patch notes specific to PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One for the March Update.
