EA detailed the new mode called Extraction:
Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point.
The new heroes are Greedo and Nien Nunb, in case you have no idea who they are, take a look at the picture to put a face to the name.
The new Star Cards and weapons were also highlighted
- Relby V-10 rifle
- DT-12 blaster pistol
- Scatter Gun (Star Card)
- Dioxis Grenade (Star Card)
- Adrenaline Stim (Star Card)
As for the maps, EA did not shed any light on them, but the screenshots show that Sullust will take you to the smelting area where the fate of Anakin Skywalker was sealed. As for the new map on Tatooine, it seems to be centred around Jabba’s throne room.
No release date has been revealed for Battlefront Outer Rim, but expect the DLC to drop in March. If you own the Season Pass, then you will get the DLC for free, if not, get ready to fork out some cash for it
