Ready to hit the beaches of Scarif? Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Battlefront mission is almost here.
The war rages on Scarif
That was, of course, the trailer for the Ultimate Edition of Star Wars Battlefront. And while you will get the new Rogue One content separately or as a part of the Season Pass, you can also opt to simply pick up that new version of the game. That way, you’ll get everything. Kind of useful if you’ve skipped chunks of content from throughout this past year.
If you haven’t though, and you’re up to date on your Battlefront-ing here in 2016, then Scarif alone is what you’re looking forward to. And it looks pretty great, with AT-ACTs, U-Wings, Shore Troopers, and rebel soldiers all hitting the beach. Not that that’s the only new level, as you’ll get another three in the pack. And along with all that, you’ll also get access to two new heroes with Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic. So it’s a good deal of Rogue One content that’s heading gamers’ way.
And again, all this will be happening on December 6th… but that’s not all. On the sixth, PSVR gamers will also be getting the special Rogue One VR mission. In that, you’ll get to actually fly an X-Wing in virtual reality. That’s kind of reminiscent of that old Star Wars arcade machine, except you know, way better.
Oh – the VR mission is free too. Did I mention that? As long as you’ve got a copy of Star Wars Battlefront on the PS4 and a PSVR headset, you’re good to go to download the mission.
As for the movie itself, that’s right around the corner too. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on the 16th of next month.
