ORIGINAL STORY 17/11/2016 9.34pm: Star Wars Battlefront's final expansion, Rogue One: Scarif, will launch on 6th December, 10 days ahead of Rogue One's 16th December theatrical premiere.

The DLC adds four new maps, including the sandy tropical planet of Scarif, where Imperial troopers plow through the jungle in AT-ACTs. You can catch a glimpse of that in the trailer below.

New playable characters include Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic, who will be played by Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn respectively in the film.

Also launching on 6th December is Star Wars Battlefront's free PSVR-exclusive add-on, Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission, which tasks players with dogfighting in an X-Wing.

In the meantime, between now and 20th November all maps and modes from the previous three Star Wars Battlefront expansions will be free, so long as you own the parent game. Players will earn quadruple scores this weekend too. I know our Martin Robinson was particularly fond of the Death Star add-on.
