Star Wars Battlefront‘s second round of premium DLC, Bespin, launches June 21, Electronic Arts has announced. This release date is for the people who hold season pass subscriptions. It will go on sale for everyone else two weeks later. So now that we know when we are getting it, what can we expect from this update?
Bespin is set in and around Cloud City, a tibanna gas mining operation you might remember from The Empire Strikes Back. With this, we’re going to see the ever-popular Lando Carrissian. This will actually be his first non-Lego console video game appearance since 2002 with Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (who remembers that game?). Fans of Lando are pretty pumped up about this and I can see why.
So who’s the bad guy in this new content launch? You can play as Dengar, the bounty hunter. And of course, there will be new weapons. The X-8 Night Sniper and the EE-4 Blaster are added and there is a map set for the famous carbon freezing chamber. EA is also telling us there will be additional game modes, star cards, maps, and blasters that come with the Bespin content drop but they’re not telling us much more about those yet. These are part of the monthly content update that will be available to all players, regardless of whether you get the DLCs or not.
So, what do you think? Are you excited for the new content? Pumped up about the addition of Lando? Want to hear more info from EA about Star Wars: Battlefront and other Star Wars games? We’ll keep you posted as we hear things.
