Star Wars Battlefront Bespin DLC Release Date and New Details Revealed

Season Pass-owners get it first, starting on June 21.


Star Wars Battlefront's Bespin DLC is coming out this month, EA has announced. People who own the Season Pass can pick it up starting on June 21, while everyone else can buy it two weeks later, beginning on July 5. This was announced on the EA Star Wars blog.

Bespin adds new Hero and Villain characters in the form of Lando Calrissian and Dengar, while the new maps are set in the Cloud City itself. There is a new "cloud car vehicle," too, as well as new weapons. These include the X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters. Bespin's key art has also been released; take a look:

As for the new Hero and Villain, here is how EA describes them:

"Dengar is a villain that thrives on being in a fight. He wields the DLT-19, which makes him the first Hero with a heavy blaster so far. Lando is very skilled with a blaster too, but his greatest talent comes from knowing the odds and using tricks against his enemies."

Battlefront's Bespin DLC also adds new game modes, star cards, and more, all of which will be announced at a later date.

Bespin is Battlefront's second paid add-on, following Outer Rim, which came out in March. After Bespin comes Death Star (fall 2016), while the final planned expansion, which currently has no name, will be delivered in early 2017. If EA is to make announcements about the future of Battlefront, that could happen during the company's E3 2016 briefing this Sunday.
