The DLC is one with the Force. The Force is with it.

The first batch of free Star Wars Battlefront 2 DLC has been detailed by EA.

Here’s what to expect from the free content, unsurprisingly themed around Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

5 December

  • Pick a side: either the First Order or the Resistance. That’ll open up the possibility for special missions that unlock faction rewards. The faction rewards will be offered all throughout December.

13 December

  • Finn and Captain Phasma join the game as playable characters. They can be purchased with in-game credits. Special faction rewards this week will offer high-power upgrades for one of the new characters.
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi vehicles and maps arrive. The maps are Crait, a planetary map, and D’qar, a Starfighter Assault one. The Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing will be added to the game, and Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing will get an upgrade.
  • A new single-player chapter, Resurrection, will feature protagonist Iden Versio “during the days of the First Order’s rise to power.” This all new chapter of Star Wars Battlefront II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.

New characters, maps and a single-player campaign? Sounds pretty good.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 next week. A ten-hour trial is now available on PC’s Origin Access and Xbox One’s EA Access.
