Now Playing: 25 Minutes of New Death Star Battle Station Gameplay - Star Wars Battlefront DLC

Death Star is Battlefront's third paid expansion, following Outer Rim and Bespin. The fourth and final one, Rogue One: Scarif, comes out this holiday; it is based on the upcoming movie. The Death Star expansion 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.
