To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Star Wars Battlefront, EA and developer DICE has blown the lid off the shooter’s latest DLC, Rogue One: Scarif.
On the one hand, we now have confirmation that the upcoming expansion will launch for PlayStation 4 on December 6 – those who don’t own the Season Pass can expect the new content on December 20 – alongside the long-awaited Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission. The former will herald two new playable heroes in Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic, a new multi-stage game mode that spans land and space, and four additional maps. You can get a fleeting glimpse of that new content in motion via the new teaser above, which is designed to trumpet the comprehensive Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition.
Here’s the synopsis:
“In Rogue One: Scarif you’ll battle across four new maps, including the sandy beaches of Scarif – an all-new tropical planet crawling with Imperials – which should look mighty familiar to anyone who saw the movie trailer. Know that incredible scene in the trailer where the AT-ACT is marching through the waves? That’s the one!”
When it comes to the VR-exclusive missions, users will need both PlayStation VR and a copy of Star Wars Battlefront. Available to download at no extra cost, the description reads: “This free DLC gives you control of your very own X-wing in fully immersive virtual reality – brush up on your piloting skills, stay on target, and prepare to jump through hyperspace as you carry out an important mission for the Rebellion.”
Star Wars Battlefront will get its fourth and final DLC, Rogue One: Scarif, on December 6. That’s just in time for the release of Gareth Edwards’ anthology movie, which is expected to hit theaters on December 16.
