May 12, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

If you’ve yet to purchase the Outer Rim expansion for Star Wars Battlefront, EA is giving you the chance to play it for free this weekend.

Available to all players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the free trial runs from Friday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15, and allows you to try all of the maps, modes, and heroes from the expansion:

This includes all locations from Jabba’s Palace and the Palace Garage on Tatooine, to the SoroSuub Refinery and Pipelines on Sullust. All players will also get to experience our new Outer Rim game mode, Extraction and earn the ability to play as Nien Nunb and Greedo.

Rebels have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim determined to extract a shipment of vital resources to their GR-75 transport ship. The Empire, intent on stopping them, has sent its stormtroopers to stop them from completing their objective.

You’ll be able to access the free Hutt Contract weapons during the trial, but Outer Rim specific weapons and Star Cards won’t be available unless you purchase the expansion or Season Pass.

The next expansion for Battlefront, Bespin, is scheduled for launch in June.

EA also announced this week that a sequel to Star Wars Battlefront will arrive in 2017.
