New Details on Star Wars Battlefront’s Death Star Mode

Straight from Gamescom, DICE and EA have announced new details on the upcoming Death Star mode DLC for Star Wars Battlefront, announcing the game mode will be in three phases and called Battle Station.

The first phase of Battle Station is all space combat as the Rebels fly X-Wings and A-Wings against the Empire’s TIE fighters and TIE interceptors. Rebels will attack a Star Destroyer looking for the weak spots to get to the Death Star, leading to Phase 2 with the players fighting inside the space station to retrieve a priority droid (plus new hero characters Bossk and Chewbacca). The final phase brings the action back into space with the Rebels targeting the Death Star, and with playable heroes on both sides including Luke Skywalker and his Red-5 X-Wing and Darth Vader in his TIE Advanced.

The third digital expansion pack, the Death Star mode debuts for season pass holders in September. You can check out the previously-released trailer below.

Star Wars Battlefront is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
