Set for release later this month, the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim expansion includes Greedo and Nien Nunb as playable hero characters, the Extraction game mode, and new weapons as you fight within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine and among the factories of Sullust.
Here’s what EA says about Outer Rim in the newly updated product page:
Explore New Locations
- Blast enemies in the smelting factory or along the industrial pipes and platforms of Sullust or fight through Jabba’s throne room and sail barge garage on Tatooine.
Play as Iconic Heroes
- New playable hero characters will have you shooting first with Greedo or targeting foes with precision as Nien Nunb.
New Mode: Extraction
- Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point.
Become More Powerful on the Battlefront
- Arm yourself with the new Relby V-10 rifle and DT-12 blaster pistol and collect and equip the Scatter Gun, Dioxis Grenade, and Adrenaline Stim Star Cards.
The Bespin expansion then arrives in summer 2016, followed by Death Star in fall 2016 and the fourth expansion pack in early 2017.
We’ll let you know when EA announces a release date for Outer Rim.
