Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star Gameplay Trailer Released

by Staff

The full trailer for the Death Star Expansion DLC for Star Wars Battlefront has been released, featuring new playable "Heroes"-class characters Chewbacca and Bossk.

The trailer represents a "FINALLY" moment for gamers who have stood by Battlefront while desperately waiting for more movie-moments to play through. It looks like the Death Star DLC should have those moments in spades, whether it's by playing with Chewbacca and his powerful bowcaster, re-enacting the famous trench run from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, or pulling off a daring rescue of everyone's original favorite droid, R2-D2.

The DLC pack, included in the Season Pass for the game, drops in four days on September 20, 2016 for those who bought the pass, and should become available to the masses about a week later.

The official press release and synopsis follows.

"Coming in September, Season Pass holders will receive our third digital expansion pack, Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star. Players will experience five new maps – on ground and in space – new weapons and Star Cards and two new heroes, the fearsome bounty hunter Bossk and everyone’s favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca.

"Board the Death Star and blast foes with the new K-16 Bryar Pistol or TL-50t Heavy Repeater. Take your Starfighters to space in an all-new game mode and even hop into the cockpits of Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced or Luke Skywalker’s Red Five X-Wing. If the Force is strong with you, attempt a trench run to take down the Empire’s ultimate weapon."

So hop into your Battlefront account and get yourself ready to take on the original planet-destroying weapon next week.
