The Evil Empire has announced that its upcoming first-person shooter Star Wars Battlefront will have a season pass that costs a whopping $50! Wait — isn’t that almost the cost a brand new game? Yup!
This season pass will include four expansion packs (the content in these expansion packs is currently unknown), two weeks early access to the expansion packs, and an exclusive “Shoot First” emote. More details should be released soon.
EA also gave us details on a new mode called Hero Hunt, that will be available when the game launches. This game mode will feature a player starting out as a hero or villain (Luke Skywalker, Darther Vader, Boba Fett, etc.) against a team of seven enemies. The player who kills the hero or villain then takes his place.
So, DICE, about those comments from your producer a few months back… “if you think there’s anything we’re not including in the game to save it for DLC, I can tell you you’re 100% wrong.” Okay then.
In other news, the beta was extended a day until Tuesday, October 13.
Are you excited for the season pass? Is this turning you away from the game? Leave a comment below!
