Star Wars Battlefront developer DICE
had declared that the new offline mode will launch next week, and he also told us when the Death Star expansion will be available.
The new offline mode is called Skirmish
and it will be available from July 20th. One of the lead designers Dennis Brannvall
it "offers players the option to play offline against bots in a solo mission or with a friend using co-op split screen (console only.)"
As far as we know there will be only two difficult options in offline mode, which is only available for Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron.
"With multiple locations that span the galaxy, from the frozen planet of Hoth to the lava encrusted planet of Sullust, we hope Skirmish brings players a new way to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront," Brannvall
will also hold more free in-game events and Hutt contracts offering "new weapons, log-in reward opportunities" are also on the way.
The other expansion called Death Star will be available to season pass holders only in September. It will introduce to new grounds and space maps, weapons, star cards, and two heroes. We don't have a lot of information on the new heroes. However, DICE stated "larger-than-life" and someone that players have been waiting for.
More information about Death Star Expansion will be provided on during EA's Star Wars game panel live stream on Saturday, July 16 at 11 AM PDT at
