Stay on target! Major Star Wars Battlefront Death Star Details were unveiled recently at Gamescon in Cologne, Germany. EA just announced that new weapons and Star Cards will be added, along with a hotly anticipated new game mode, Battle Station, which will be part of the DLC release.
In similar suit to the game modes like Extraction from the Outer Rim expansion, and Sabotage from Bespin, this new mode will have three stages. In the first phase, rebel starfighters will face off in space against Imperial TIE Fighters, with an objective that mirrors the current space game mode, Fighter Squadron. However, have patience young Padawan, because this is only stage one. If enough TIE Fighters are destroyed, Y-Wing support will arrive and rebel forces can focus their attacks on bringing down the main Star Destroyer. Phase Two brings the battle straight to the main corridors of the Death Star. Rebel forces will need to secure a priority droid directly inside the legendary space station, while fending off Imperial troops and villainous bounty hunters. The final phase takes place back in space, where players can try to blow up the Death Star. Details have been scarce, but it’s just been announced that the Red-5 X-wing of Luke Skywalker will be featured, along with the TIE Advanced Darth Vader.
Fans will rejoice with the addition of everyone’s favorite Wookiee, who will be added to the squad of playable Heroes. Chewbacca will have a super enhanced Bowcaster, which we can only hope is akin to Han Solo’s unique Rapid Fire ability. Meanwhile, the menacing Trandoshan bounty hunter, Bossk will be added to the side of Villains. He’ll be equipped with a blaster with infrared sight, along with grenades and health regeneration upon a single kill.
Fans have eagerly awaited more details surrounding the upcoming expansions. EA and DICE have confirmed the release date for the Death Star DLC in September, and the Rogue One: Scarif is slated for December. Season Pass
holders will gain access to the new features two weeks before the general public. With the Death Star DLC jam-packed with new features, we can’t wait to explore the new maps and what’s on the horizon.
