Play Star Wars Battlefront's Bespin DLC for free this August

The expansion launched in June, and added new characters, maps, cards, and a vehicle.


To entice players (back) to 2015's Star Wars Battlefront reboot, EA and DICE will be running a free trial of the game's Bespin DLC over August 19-21 (via GameSpot).

Bespin launched back in June, and augmented the base game by adding Lando Calrissian and Dengar to the Light and Dark sides of the conflict, respectively, plus maps set in Cloud City, Lando's stomping grounds.

The DLC, Battlefront's second paid expansion, added weapons, Star cards, and a cloud car as well.

EA will hold another free trial of Bespin over September 12-18. If you can't wait, or if you like what you play and want to continue enjoying the content beyond free trial periods, the expansion runs $15. Or, you can get it as part of Battlefront's Season Pass at a price of $50.

Battlefront's third expansion, titled, Death Star, is scheduled to launch in September. Rogue One: Scarif is the name of the fourth and final DLC pack; expect that one during the holiday season in tandem with the theatrical release of the Rogue One spinoff film.
