Electronic Arts is feeling the holiday spirit, and are giving gamers a few good reasons to hop back into Star Wars Battlefront this weekend. The festivities begin on December 23 and last until the 25. Players will get a 5,000 credit bonus for simply logging into the game during this time. Also on tap is a double XP multiplier, and the game’s Death Star expansion, which originally released in September, is available for all players to check out.
The Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC typically retails for $14.99, although it’s currently on sale until December 27 for $7.49. It’s also a part of the game’s Season Pass, which can be purchased for $29.99 (and is also currently available cheaper at $19.49). Here’s how Electronic Arts describes the DLC’s content on the game’s PlayStation Store page:
Expand your galaxy with the Star Wars Battlefront Death Star digital expansion pack. Fire up your starships and ready your blasters as one of the deadliest weapons in the galaxy makes its highly-anticipated debut. Everyone’s favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca, arrives alongside bounty hunter Bossk as the two new playable heroes. Board the Death Star and blast foes with the new K-16 Bryar Pistol or TL-50 Heavy Repeater. Take your starfighters to space in an all-new game mode and even hop into the cockpits of Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced or Luke Skywalker’s Red Five X-wing. If the Force is strong with you, attempt a trench run to take down the Empire’s ultimate weapon.
All of that will be free to check out from December 23-25. Will you be jumping back into Star Wars Battlefront? Let us know in the comments below.
