Electronic Arts’ “Star Wars Battlefront” is set to receive a brand-new update next month. The shooter game will also be getting its first Season Pass DLC which gamers believe will add two new aliens as playable characters.
After EA started rolling out its February 2016 update for the game, the publisher didn’t waste any moment and teased the upcoming “Star Wars Battlefront” Season Pass DLC Outer Rim.
“With our February Update launched today, we will be coming up on the full reveal and release of the first pack within the Season Pass, Outer Rim,” EA’s community manager Sledgehammer70, a.k.a. Mat Everett in real life, posted on the “Star Wars Battlefront” forum on Feb. 23. “Look for details on more maps, weapons, star cards, heroes, level cap increase, and an all-new multiplayer game mode.”
The teaser was accompanied by the image above. Looking closely at the image, members of the “Star Wars Battlefront” community were quick to note in the forum that the upcoming Outer Rim DLC could have both a villain and a hero, namely Greedo and Nien Nunb, respectively. They are referring to the two characters located in the center of the image.
Nien Nunb is a native of Sullust who helped Princess Leia and the Rebel Alliance in several occasions. He aided the princess in smuggling Alderaanian survivors off Sullust, was involved in the princess’ diversionary mission Operation Yellow Moon, and later on served as co-pilot to Lando Calrissian during the Battle of Endor. For those wondering, he is described as “jowled” and “mouse-eyed.”
Meanwhile, Greedo is most well-known for being the alien featured in the Cantina scene with Han Solo (Harrison Ford). He is a Rodian bounty hunter working for Jabba the Hutt.
Needless to say, these are all speculations at this point until confirmed by EA. Everett did say that they are “very much looking forward” to revealing more details on Outer Rim’s content and launch.
The Outer Rim DLC is part of the “Star Wars Battlefront” Season Pass which is available for the PS4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. It can also be bought separately.
