Death Star Expansion and Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission for Star Wars Battlefront Detailed

EA and DICE have been providing updates on two of Star Wars Battlefront’s upcoming expansions, which include the Death Star Expansion and the Rogue One: X-Wing VR mission.

The Death Star Expansion adds a new game mode called Battle Station, which will offer up three phases of gameplay all taking place in space. During the first phase players will use starfighters to whittle down the Empire’s Death Star defenses, and if that attack is successful the second phase will see players boarding the Death Star for ground based combat. If that phase is completed successfully players will then take on the role of Luke as they recreate his trench run from A New Hope. The expansion will also had Chewbacca and Bossk to the game. It’s set to go live sometime in September.


It was also revealed that the Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission will be free for all players on the PS4 that own the game and the PlayStation VR headset. Stay tuned for more details on these new expansions as they become available.
