Battlefront players will be able to run through the halls of Cloud City very soon; this month in fact.
In an update on their Battlefront blog, EA announced that the Bespin DLC pack will be coming to season pass holders on June 21, with the content releasing to the rest of the galaxy two weeks later. Along with some new bits of detail, the key art for the expansion was released. Check that out below.
They also announced that a cloud car will be a playable vehicle in the Fighter Squadron and Walker Assault game modes, and the X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blaster will be added to the list of available weapons. No information on star cards or maps were detailed, but from how they worded it, it is likely that one map will take place in Cloud City itself, fighting through the Bioniip Laboratories and carbon-freezing chambers, while the other will show off the Administrator’s Palace.
As we already knew, Lando Calrissian, smuggler and scoundrel, as well as the famed bounty hunter, Dengar, will be joining the roster of heroes and villains with the release of Bespin, alongside new blasters, star cards, and maps. EA teased what Lando’s abilities might be, saying, “his greatest talent comes from knowing the odds and using tricks against his enemies.” For Dengar, they said he will be wielding the DLT-19, while hinting that his ability may have something to do with how thoroughly he enjoys being in a fight. That’s all they’ve given us for now, but more details will likely show up within the next couple days at EA Play.
