The Outer Rim DLC is now active in Star Wars: Battlefront and includes Greedo, Nien Nunb, and Hutt Contracts and a number of new maps and weapons, however to play it you must first purchase the expansion pack. Star Wars EA have decided to give everyone a chance to try out this expansion for themselves for free this weekend, obviously in the hopes that you will enjoy it so much that afterwards you will go ahead and make the purchase. Regardless though, it is always nice to get some hands on time with a game or DLC before you commit financially to it.
There are a couple restrictions in place for accessing this DLC for free this weekend though, and along with the announcement from Star Wars EA, we have included these restrictions below:
Our team has been working hard to bring new content to the battlefront and we wanted to share a special surprise with the community.
