X-Wings activate! Or whatever it is X-Wings do! It’s time to blow up the Death Star… again! But this time it’s in a video game—Star Wars Battlefront‘s [official site] Death Star add-on to be exact. If there’s one thing Star Wars’ bad guys love, it’s creating a massive planet-sized weapon and watching it get blown up by their enemies. When will they ever learn?
The Death Star expansion is out next Tuesday to Season Pass holders, so EA has treated us to a gameplay trailer. It looks as though you’ll be able to take the battle into outer space, or light up some Storm Troopers in frantic gun fights within the Death Star itself, re-enacting the classic battle.
Death Star introduces both Chewbacca and Bossk to the Star Wars Battlefront cast. You’ll be able to play as both, and they each have their own arsenal of special abilities and weapons.
The Death Star expansion also adds five new maps to the game, based both on the ground and in space, and you can bring the new K-16 Bryar Pistol or TL-50t Heavy Repeater with you. Wannabe-pilots can even fly around in a TIE-Fighter or an X-Wing.
