what is it


  • Star Wars: Battlefront has been released nearly a year ago and it was a massive success; although, the population of the game has since been slowly declining.

    I think, you could attribute it to the fact that Blizzard’s Overwatch is now the first-person genre’s poster child.

    Anyway, Star Wars: Battlefront has had a lot of interesting pieces. You can play as iconic characters and a lot of Star Wars fans really love this hoverboard skate.

    The game’s developer, DICE, has not added some definitive DLC content that would entice a massive pool of Star Wars fans, though.

    That will probably change in the near future as DICE and EA has unveiled a new DLC content that will feature the iconic Death Star.

    For the people who do not know, the Death Star is a space installation that sports a massive weapon and can house the Imperial fleet without any problems.

    And no, we’re not talking only about a hundred imperial soldiers; we are talking about thousands of them in the Death Star.

    Since the game’s launch, a lot of fans were wondering if DICE is going to include the iconic space station in the game.

    I mean, the Death Star is one of the hallmark figures in the Star Wars universe and it would be a shame if the game developers would not include it, right?

    Well, the publisher of the game, Electronic Arts or EA for short, has released a new trailer featuring the new Death Star DLC update.

    The trailer was short but it featured the Death Star and some star pilots that waged war on the Imperial army via a space battle.

    Of course, the game will feature some space battle at some point and it may be included in the upcoming DLC update.

    Aside from the Death Star, the DLC update will also tag along one of the most iconic characters of the original Star Wars saga: Chewbacca!

    Han Solo’s trusty sidekick will also be joining the fray as a playable character. It would be interesting to see Chewy wielding his trusty bow gun, shooting at enemies while roaring his iconic “rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr”.

    The new Death Star DLC update will also feature new maps, new Star Cards, and new weapons as well. We will have to wait a little longer to know the full features of the Death Star DLC update as there is still no patch notes yet as of the time of writing.

    And lastly, DICE is also set to release a single-player, offline mode. Think of this as a mode where you can practice your skills by battling some AI opponents.

    This is great as the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, another popular FPS shooter, has this feature and it is perfect for people who want to hone their skills first before entering the multiplayer arena.

    I don’t know if this feature will be bundled with the DLC update or if this feature will be released prior to that; we will have to wait and see.

    The new Star Wars: Battlefront Death Star update will be released sometime in September 2016.
