Star Wars Battlefront’s February update went live today, and sneaking in alongside the usual tweaks and adjustments coming our way is the inclusion of a new multiplayer map.
The new map will be available on a number of game modes, including those featuring 40 players such as Walker Assault, Supremacy and Turning Point, and will also go into rotation for the smaller multiplayer variants of Drop Zone, Blast, Fighter Squadron and Heroes Vs Villains.
The game mode Turning Point came as part of the free Battle of Jakku update last December and has so far been exclusive to the map it arrived alongside, Graveyard of Giants. Today’s update allows Turning Point to be played on all current maps that support Walker Assault and Supremacy game modes.
Also included in the update is the addition of new survival mission for solo and co-op play called Ice Caves, and like the new multiplayer map it will also be based on Hoth.
Twilight on Hoth is the fourth free map added to Battlefront since the game released last November, with EA sticking to their plan of supporting the game with free content and updates alongside paid DLC.
EA intend to release another new multiplayer map and mission map next month for free, set on Endor and Tatooine respectively. March also sees the arrival of the first paid DLC, which comes included with the games £39.99 Season Pass. Called Outer Rim, the add on brings new weapons, heroes, maps and a new game mode.
Free stuff is always nice, right? Let us know what you think of Battlefront’s latest update over in the forums.
