Star Wars Battlefront Heads to the Outer Rim With New Gameplay Trailer
Star Wars Battlefront may have its detractors, but for now at least, it's our best shot at a modern Star Wars gaming experience. The original release of the game was lacking in a few areas, but through a series of add-ons this year, EA is hoping to turn Battlefront into a more complete gaming experience. The latest of those expansions is 'Outer Rim', which will see a variety of new content pieces added to the game.

EA released the first gameplay trailer for their Outer Rim expansion today, showcasing new maps, heroes, weapons and star cards. Greedo, the Rodian bounty hunter whose legend centers on getting shot (first) by Han Solo has been added as a Dark Side hero, but that's small fry when compared to the Light Side's new addition. Nien Nunb is by far my favorite character in the Star Wars Universe – his goofy laugh captivated me as a child and rightly or wrongly that's really stuck with me into adulthood. The Sullustan freedom fighter will become a new playable hero with the release of the Outer Rim expansion, and with the confirmation that he'll be returning to our screens once more in Star Wars: Episode VIII, there's never been a better time to celebrate one of the franchise's greatest fringe characters.



Of course, Sullustans and Rodians have been upgradeable character skins from the start, but as the trailer shows, Nien Nunb and Greedo will come complete with their own special hero moves and abilities. Also included in this latest expansion are new weapons and star cards, which you can see listed off below.

- Relby V-10 rifle
- DT-12 blaster pistol
- Scatter Gun (Star Card)
- Dioxis Grenade (Star Card)
- Adrenaline Stim (Star Card)

The Outer Rim update is release on March 22nd and is included in the $50 Season Pass, or available on its own for $15.
