Star Wars Battlefront Dev Teases Announcement With Hoth Picture

What do you think EA is teasing here?


Star Wars Battlefront

It looks like Electronic Arts is gearing up to share some Star Wars Battlefront news tomorrow. This afternoon, the official EA Star Wars Twitter account posted the teaser image below, showing Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and a Tauntaun on the icy planet Hoth.

It's possible this tweet is in reference to Battlefront's January 2016 update. With only a few days left in the month, it seems about time for DICE to start talking about specifics for it.

We know it won't include a new Tatooine map, but there is no word yet on what Battlefront's January patch will come with. A video from EA Brasil indicated that new outfits for Luke and Leia may be featured, but this is not confirmed.

Battlefront's extra content so far has included The Force Awakens-inspired Battle of Jakku. Released in December 2015, this was a free update for all players that came with a new map set on Jakku and the 40-player Turning Point mode.

In addition to at least four paid expansion packs, DICE will deliver free content (maps and Star Cards) for all players in the future. None of the paid or free content has been officially announced yet, however.

What are you hoping to see from tomorrow's Battlefront announcement? Let us know in the comments below!
