If you’re a Season Pass owner for Star Wars Battlefront, we’ve got good news. The Death Star raid is live.
That’s no moon
It’s one of the coolest moments in the original Star Wars film, and an important moment in the fiction’s lore. It was also the first such event in what would become a series of them in the Star Wars universe, but I digress. Simply put, the Death Star raid is pretty awesome.
More than just the trench run and space battle though, the Death Star map in Star Wars Battlefront also gets up close and personal. Players will have to be part of an assault crew in the battle station itself to complete a mission there. There’s quite a bit to it, and of course, it all looks pretty awesome.
In all, there’s quite a bit of new stuff added with this mission. New maps, weapons, and -of course- Bossk and Chewy himself are now playable too. It’s not available for everyone with the game though. As I mentioned, this release is just for the Season Pass owners.
Everyone else will be able to play too, but not till October 4th. That’s when the map will be up for purchase, and can be added to non-Season Pass authorized copies of Star Wars Battlefront for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Here’s your full list of what’s new:
