Star Wars Battlefront gets a new Endor map and Tatooine mission

Star Wars Battlefront (opens in new tab)'s galaxy briefly went offline early this morning, and it came back slightly larger. EA and DICE added the Survivors of Endor map to Battlefront's Walker Assault, Supremacy, and Turning Point playlists as part of the game's March update (opens in new tab), along with a new Survival Mission taking place on Tatooine's Rebel Depot.

This is the last of the free updates that DICE plotted out back in January (opens in new tab). The Outer Rim DLC (opens in new tab) is expected to arrive later this month on its own and as part of the Season Pass, adding in several new maps, Star Cards, and Greedo and Nien Nunb as playable heroes. Three more paid expansions will arrive throughout this year and into early 2017.

Grand season pass plans aside, DICE likely has more free updates planned for the game - it's still putting out substantial updates for Battlefield 4 (opens in new tab) more than two years later - we just don't know what they will look like. Star Wars: The Force Awakens' John Boyega could go for a full story mode (opens in new tab), and if it's good enough for FN-2187, it's good enough for me.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
