Star Wars Battlefront takes the fight to the Death Star in latest DLC

Star Wars Battlefront players can officially take the fight to the Death Star thanks to the game's latest DLC expansion. Now available for season pass holders on Xbox One and PC, the Death Star expansion brings a slew of new maps, a new game mode and much more.

In all, the pack contains 5 new maps — all set on and around the Death Star — along with the new Battle Station game mode, which EA describes thusly:

A new three-phased mode in which Rebels attempt to destroy an Imperial Star Destroyer in order to clear space for a GR-75 and its brave Rebel boarding party. Then, these Rebels participating in an assault on the Death Star in hopes of rescuing R2-D2 before, finally, attempting to destroy the Death Star itself with the help of Luke Skywalker.

This update also includes two new heroes, Chewbacca and Bossk, along with new Star Cards and weapons. Of course, there are a number of bug fixes and tuning tweaks across the board as well. If you're interested in checking out the full list of changes, be sure to give EA's full patch notes a look.
