Star Wars Battlefront's Bespin DLC gets a release date and pretty art

Star Wars Battlefront's Bespin DLC was scheduled to arrive in June and here it is, right on time, just the expansion we were looking for. A trip to the Cloud City will be available to season pass holders from June 21 and regular Jedis two weeks later and EA has revealed a bit more about what we'll get up to.  

"Join legendary smuggler Lando Calrissian and cold-blooded bounty hunter Dengar in the Cloud City of Bespin," says the post on EA's site. "Take to the skies in the new cloud car vehicle and journey through Cloud City and the Administrator’s Palace. The Bespin digital expansion will feature two new blasters to add to your arsenal. No matter your preference of short or long range combat, there will be something new to try out in Cloud City. Hunt enemies within the Bioniip Laboratories or carbon-freezing chambers with the new X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters." 

Both Lando and Dengar have new traits that give them new abilities and Dengar is the first Hero with a heavy blaster in the shape of the DLT-19. As you'd expect Lando isn't bad with a blaster either but apparently his greatest talent comes from knowing the odds and "using tricks against his enemies." Hmmm. We'll get more info on modes, weapons, Star Cards and blasters very soon.
