The Death Star expansion will be available to season pass holders in September. It introduces new ground and space maps, weapons, Star Cards, and two heroes. One of these characters is described as "larger-than-life" and someone DICE knows players have been waiting for.

During the panel a very brief trailer showed a number of fighter pilots engaging in combat, the scene was very reminiscent of the Death Star assault from A New Hope.

Another upcoming mode for Star Wars Battlefront is Skirmish, which allows players to have multiplayer battles offline. You can read more about it here.
