For this coming weekend only, DICE is allowing all players of Star Wars Battlefront to play the Outer Rim DLC free of charge. This includes players on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
From May 13th until May 15th, you can try out all of the new game modes, maps and characters that are in Star Wars Battlefront’s Outer Rim DLC. You will be able to play as the likes of Nien Nunb and Greedo and even roam around in Jabba’s Palace just to name a few. Some official notes about the trial can be seen below via the official website.
Will I be able to unlock the Outer Rim Hutt Contracts?: “While you will be able to access the free Hutt Contract weapons, the Outer Rim specific weapons and Star Cards will only be accessible to our Season Pass and Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim Digital Standalone Pass holders during the free trial event.”
How many hours or days can I play the free trial?: “You will be able to log in and play the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim free trail content starting May 13th, 2016 thru May 15th,2016. After that time, you will need to own either the Season Pass or the Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim Digital Standalone Pass to access the content.”
More DLC for the game is expected to come out later this year. Bear in mind all of the content will just be focused on the original trilogy of movies. Next year’s Battlefront 2 (or whatever it will be called) will have content from the new movies according to EA.
