Star Wars Battlefront’s DLC is free right now

One big mistake of Star Wars Battlefront [official site], splitting new maps and modes and whatnot off into paid DLC, will be corrected with Battlefront 2. But what about the first game (third? fifth? firth? the names in this flipping series…) and those still playing it? Good news, gang! EA are giving the DLC season pass away for free right now, letting all boldly-going Battlefronteers play the lot. The game is real cheap now too, down to £4. Make haste, as the offers might warp away at any time.

Swing on over to Origin to get the Battlefront Season Pass for free. You can nab this even if you don’t own Battlefront, if you’re a digital hoarder. The pass usually costs £17.99.

The Ultimate Edition of Battlefront, which includes both the base game and the Season Pass, is only £4.16/$4.99 right now too.

EA don’t say when the offers will end, only that they’re “for a limited time only”.

When Rick Lane revisited Battlefront, he found some of the DLC had really improved the game – though some was a bit bum. For free, the price is right.

Another weakness of the firth game is that it doesn’t have a story campaign, so the sequel is whacking in one of those too. Oh right, and space battles will be in from the start as well. The full game is due to launch in November but a Battlefront 2 open beta test will precede it in October.

      It’s just a picture of C3-PO and Hans Solo.

        I was just surprised to see Star Wars picture in a Star Wars article. Either Alice is slipping or there’s some hidden joke I am missing.

        Though maybe being nervous about some hidden joke is the whole point… aaghh! I don’t have the nerves for this game!

        The Star Wars game, however, looks like worth a look.

    Ah,…Buck Rogers…long time, no see!

      Erin Gray was fantastic as princess Leia.

      Was Buck one of those bounty hunters?

      Have any of you read the script for the movies? Twiki is actually a pretty controversial character. It wasn’t a wonder the studio wanted its lines to be censored out.

    The story on the thumbnail is more interesting than the article, no offense.

    • Daymare says:

      Weird that the story is about C3-PO and Chewbacca, when the picture is actually R2D2 and Hans Solo.

    Will Battlefront 2 have a ’70s-riffic soundtrack like “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?”

    Also, say what you want about “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”… it’s still better than the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

    • MacTheGeek says:

      If George Lucas had just left Jar Jar and Anakin as they appeared in the screen test above, the prequels would be remembered much more fondly.

    The PS Store says the Battlefront:Ultimate Edition last till 9/18/2017 at 11 AM and the free seasons pass till 10/05/2017 at 11 AM

    PS: don’t judge me! I just bought a PS4 Pro along w/ an XIM4 to play BattleBorn

    I think I paid 5 bucks for this a few weeks back, during some kinda sale. Tried to check out the last DLC, based on Rogue One, but it couldn’t find enough players to start a match after about 20 minutes.

  8. Ogun says:

    This game still plays like it came free with a box of cereal.

      I had loads of fun with those baking soda submarines and boats as a kid. Remember those?

    Buck me!

  10. Neurotic says:

    Downloading the game (again) plus all the DLC, that’s about… what, 80 Bazillion Gigabytes? On my 1.25 mb ADSL line, it could take until Star Wars 9 is released!

  11. damnsalvation says:

    Should we boycott the new one until EA agrees to call it Battlefront 4? Battlefront 2017 would also be acceptable.

  12. Konservenknilch says:

    I’d love to have a peek into the RPS image archive. But that’s probably heavily guarded.

  13. Tiax says:

    It’s cheap but it’s also worth pointing out that for the same price, you get one-month of Origin Access which allows you to play the game, all the DLCs + a lot of other games (including Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2).
