Star Wars: Battlefront's Outer Rim DLC detailed

UPDATE: Release date and new gameplay trailer emerges.

UPDATE 17/03/206 7.21pm: Star Wars: Battlefront's upcoming Outer Rim expansion has been dated for 22nd March with a Season Pass. Those without one will have to wait an additional two weeks, so you're looking at 5th April.

DICE has released a new trailer showing off gameplay from the impending add-on. Finally, we can enjoy Han shooting first again.

ORIGINAL STORY 03/03/206 2.02am: Last week a piece of Star Wars: Battlefront promo art teased Greedo and Nien Nunb as playable characters in the upcoming Outer Rim DLC expansion due later this month. Now EA has confirmed the "iconic" pairing as a villain and hero respectively.

In case those names don't ring a bell, Greedo is the guy Han shot under the table in Mos Eisley cantina in the original Star Wars, while Nien Nunb is the flabby-cheeked alien creature who co-piloted the Millennium Falcon with Lando in Return of the Jedi's third act.

Finally, the Star Wars characters we've wanted to play as all along.

EA also noted that Outer Rim will contain three new maps: the industrial factories of Sullust, Jabba's throne room, and a sail barge garage on Tatooine.

Furthermore, Outer Rim will bring about a new mode called Extraction wherein Rebel forces must haul a valuable shipment of resources while the Empire is tasked with stopping them from reaching the extraction point.

The expansion will also add new weaponry such as the Relby V-10 rifle, DT-12 blaster pistol, Scatter Gun, Dioxis Grenade, and Adrenaline Stim Star Cards.

What Outer Rim won't add is any single-player story content, much to Finn actor John Boyega's chagrin.
