The second DLC expansion for Star Wars Battlefront launches June 21 for holders of the game’s season pass and two weeks later for everyone else, EA has announced. The Bespin add-on will will take players to the golden-hued Cloud City seen in The Empire Strikes Back, and will have several maps set in and around iconic locations, including the carbon-freezing chambers and the Bioniip Laboratories.
Of course, the setting being what it is, you can look forward to Lando Calrissian joining the side of the heroes, and bounty hunter Dengar teaming up with the villains. The post on EA’s official website reads:
Join legendary smuggler Lando Calrissian and cold-blooded bounty hunter Dengar in the Cloud City of Bespin. Take to the skies in the new cloud car vehicle and journey through Cloud City and the Administrator’s Palace. The Bespin digital expansion will feature two new blasters to add to your arsenal. No matter your preference of short or long range combat, there will be something new to try out in Cloud City. Hunt enemies within the Bioniip Laboratories or carbon-freezing chambers with the new X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters.
Additionally, EA says that both new special characters will have new “unique gameplay abilities,” including the DLT-19 heavy blaster for Dengar, whereas Lando uses his talent for “knowing the odds and using tricks against his enemies” to gain the upper hand.
Lando and Dengar both feature new traits that will give them unique gameplay abilities. 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.
Two more sizeable expansions are planned for Star Wars Battlefront after the release of the Bespin pack. The Death Star add-on is currently scheduled for a Fall 2016 release, with a still-unnamed fourth due to reach players in early 2017. Expect to see more news on the latter at E3.
