Star Wars Battlefront DLC plans revealed

EA has a lot planned for the future of Star Wars Battlefront's downloadable content.

13

Star Wars Battlefront is now available for Rebels and Imperials to wage war online, and today, we’re learning what we can expect to keep the battles feeling fresh via its Season Pass.

The Season Pass will include four expansion packs, which will include over 20 new items, four additional Heroes and Villains, 16 new multiplayer maps taking place in new locations, and four new game modes. Those who purchase the high-priced Season Pass will be given access to each expansion pack two weeks earlier than those who purchase them separately, and an exclusive “Shoot First” emote.

The Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass retails for $50 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, which we already voiced our opinion in regards to its high price. Considering all of the content expected to be released in the four expansion packs, we wish EA would have included more content in the actual game rather than saving all of this content in its expansions.

      "16 multiplayer maps, so we can split the living hell out of the playerbase...."

      i'm usually OK with season passes but isn't there only 8 maps in the original game and they want me to pay 79.99 CAD just for that? 69.99 gets me 16 more maps that will trickle out over a year...

      Just looked up the prices in canada, $80 for the game, $70 for the Season Pass. These prices seem crazy.

        That's only because they are crazy

      What pisses me off is for the top tier you don't even save any money. It'd be the same as getting the second tier bundle and later buying the season pass...

      Yeah fuck this game, hard. And it will sell like hot cakes because it's Star Wars and is really fucking pretty. I hate everything.

      EA isn't the only one guilty of this, but I wish the game could at least come out proper before they started talking about DLC.

      I guess you've got to give folks a reason to put up for a season pass.

        Hell, they've aready finished the DLC I'm sure. Just holding it hostage for more money.

        They were thinking about all the sweet, sweet loot they're most assuredly going to make off this game and its business model!

      Yeah...I really want to play this game, I enjoyed the beta, but this is...I just can't justify spending that much money on one game. Sorry boys.

      Hahaha, jeesuz! I was on the fence about this but now there is no way in hell I am buying this game. There is more content in the expansions than in the actual game. You want me to pay $110 to get the whole game? Fuck you, EA!

        Yeah. I had the game preordered, but cancelled it Sunday night. I don't mind spending 60 bucks for a game if I get even 5 hours out of it. But I hate this idea of season passes, especially ones like this, with more content than the original game.

        I would rather they charge 100 bucks and give everyone the same maps at release.

          i miss the days when it was just Quake and it always had mod tools and people made their own maps for free

        This. No one is more excited than me for another Battlefront, but fuck this. I'll wait for it to hit $30 in a week. I wish it was digital, but fuck it.

          Knowing EA, they probably won't cut the price for a year. Hopefully then they'll have a package that includes all the DLC for $20 like they did with BF4

        Same here.. I was on the fence as it was but this DLC bullshit is simply too much blatant gouging. It's unfortunate as it's so well polished but I have no interest in paying over $200CDN to play a video game which is bland out of the gate.

      Main game should be 40 if they are just gonna put 2/3s of the maps in the season pass
