The Star Wars Battlefront Outer Rim DLC is releasing today. We did carry a piece yesterday about the details of the latest DLC apart from the recent Battle of Jakku DLC, that was free.  This time, more paid DLC are being planned for 2016 starting with The Outer Rim, Engadget shared the news about the DLC from their website.

The latest DLC will feature new characters, weapons and maps that still features the original trilogy setting (Star Wars Episode IV-VI). A map will feature Jabba the Hutt’s palace that showcases the close-range field and garage complex while the second map features the lava planet Sullust. It also had a previous map in the base game of Star Wars Battlefront.

However reports suggest that Electronic Arts will be shutting down its servers today to launch the “DLC” and the “accompanying patch”. According to Gamespot reports, the server will be offline for an hour.

The new DLC will be available on the Season Pass for 65 AUD (50 USD) and the content will be available from today for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can check out more about Battlefront on their official website.
