Back in January EA announced the first three expansion packs for Star Wars Battelfront and today they revealed all the details of the first one, "The Outer Rim". The expansion includes new maps on Sullust and Tatooine (Jabba's Palace specifically), new heroes, and a new game mode. Players fighting for the Empire will now have the opportunity to play as Greedo ("New playable hero characters will have you shooting first with Greedo" says the EA Star Wars website) and players on the side of the Rebel Alliance will get to play as Nien Numb.
About the new game mode, "Extraction", the EA Star Wars website says,
"Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point."
The "Outer Rim" expansion pack is available in the Star Wars Battlefront Season's Pass (which includes the other three expansions) for $69.99.
