Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition Contains Game and All DLC for $40
If you're thinking about buying Battlefront, you might want to wait until November.
[UPDATE] EA has now officially announced the Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition. As rumored, it comes with the base game and all four expansion packs, Outer Rim, Bespin, Death Star, and Rogue One: Scarif.
The original story is below.
Electronic Arts will release an "Ultimate Edition" for Star Wars Battlefront, according to a recently discovered retail listing.
The unannounced version of the game will come with Battlefront's Deluxe Edition content (including the DL-44 blaster and other items), as well as the season pass that contains four expansion packs. These include the already released Outer Rim, Bespin, and Death Star, as well as Rogue One tie-in Rogue One: Scarif. That expansion doesn't yet have a release date, though launching close to the movie, which comes out in December, would seem to make sense.
Amazon (via VideoGamer) lists the Battlefront Ultimate Edition as coming out on November 18. Rogue One hits theaters on December 16. Amazon has listings for PS4 and Xbox One, but not PC, though that doesn't necessarily mean it won't come to PC.
Battlefront's latest expansion, Death Star, started its rollout in September for season pass-owners, before launching for everyone in early October. It added five new maps and the Battle Station mode that basically lets you recreate the scene from A New Hope where Luke Skywalker blows up the Death Star. There are also more weapons and Star Cards, while Chewbacca and Bossk have been added as hero characters.
Additionally, Battlefront's level cap has been raised to 90. A patch released alongside Death Star in September also made a number of hero/villain changes and fixed a lot of bugs. You can see the full patch notes here.
As for the upcoming Rogue One tie-in expansion, little is known, though the Ultimate Edition's box art states it will contain "characters, maps, and more" from the upcoming movie. We do know, however, that Felicity Jones' character, Jyn Erso, will be playable, alongside Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic.
