Kotaku points out that when “Star Wars Battlefront” was released last November, the main sentiment of players is that the game’s number of maps, mode, and vehicles were inferior compared to other full-priced games in the same genre.

Apart from the January updates that GameSpot detailed, Kotaku also relays that EA Games will also include balancing tweaks to multiplayer modes as well as weapons.

Fans excited for the free stuff coming do not have to wait long since the January update for “Star Wars Battlefront” is scheduled to come out today, January 27.
