Electronic Arts announced today that a new trailer for Star Wars Battlefront‘s Death Star expansion will air tomorrow, September 16. You don’t have to wait that long to see some new footage, however, as EA released a teaser on Twitter that provides of glimpse of what fans can expect.
Death Star comes with new maps, Star Cards, and weapons. Additionally, new heroes Chewbacca and Bossk will be added. There is also a cool-sounding mode called Battle Station that plays out across three phases. In the final one, players become Luke Skywalker and fly his Red-5 X-wing to take out the ship in a scene not unlike the one from A New Hope. This appears to be what’s referenced in the teaser trailer.
A release date for Death Star has not been confirmed, though we know it’s coming in September. The Battlefront Live Events Calendar says there will be a double XP event on the weekend of September 23-25 to celebrate Death Star’s launch, so it should come out around then.
Death Star is Battlefront’s third expansion, following Outer Rim and Bespin. The fourth add-on, Rogue One: Scarif, which is based on this year’s movie, is slated to launch this holiday.
In other news about Battlefront, the Bespin maps are now free for everyone to try for a limited time.
Here is the Trailer and it looks epic!!
