Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star Trailer.


DICE have just unveiled their latest paid expansion to Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star. Check inside for a trailer showing off Battle Station mode and take a good look at the renders for the new characters.







Death Star features a campaign-like mode called Battle Station, which – depending on which side you play as – involves repelling or carrying out an assault on a Star Destroyer, protecting or extracting a droid, and halting or successfully blowing up the Death Star itself in a single, multi-phase gameplay session. New spacecraft units are featured in this expansion – Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing and Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced – along with new stages, weapons, and power-ups. The official site also has an in-depth look at both of the new Hero/Villain characters – Chewbacca and Bossk, respectively. Have a look at their in-game renders below:

    Looks tasty.

    looks like crap. They should stick to coming up with new battles rather than revisiting movie battles and adding so many elements that weren’t there to the point its unrecognizable.

    • September 17, 2016 at 12:20 am

      yeah, they should make instead an attack to something like Kuat or whathever, not some non-canon crap.

  • September 16, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    Oh yeah.

  • September 16, 2016 at 11:56 pm

    Yay more content…that should’ve been in the game from the start.

  • September 17, 2016 at 3:54 am

    why are they still refusing to add clone wars to this? that was my favorite part of battlefront II. only this time we could have ahsoka, anakin, rex and obi-wan heroes. it would be great.

    • September 17, 2016 at 4:04 pm

      They arne’t refusing. It was never their plan. This takes place during the OT.

      • September 17, 2016 at 11:25 pm

        they are ignoring it which is a shame.

        • September 18, 2016 at 12:35 am

          They are making the game they set out to make, which is what they want to do. We had tons of games from 1999-on that were in the PT era. No one is ignoring anything.

          • September 18, 2016 at 12:54 am

            Oh come on, they were actively looking to avoid the prequel setting with sequel trilogy coming out. The dismissal and basically ignoring the prequels is what Disney had been doing with the ramp up, and promotion of Episode VII. I am sure they made a concentrated effort to have EA avoid putting prequel stuff in the game as it would totally go against what they set out to do with Episode VII(making people forget about prequels and reset Star Wars moving forward with a nostalgic turn on the original). I don’t mind, but its what they did. Its a shame too because there is so much more content that could be added into the game with the use of prequel characters, settings and such. Which hopefully we get some in the sequel.

            ” they were actively looking to avoid the prequel setting with sequel trilogy coming out”

            Baseless speculation.

            ” I am sure…” based on nothing but your emotions. Not real evidence. I understand you are upset, but you can’t use your hurt feelings as proof someone was hateful towards the PT.

            Hopefully the PT will be in a sequel. But ONE game with NO PT stuff and you people lose your minds.


          • September 18, 2016 at 3:06 am

            we’re calm. 😉

          • September 18, 2016 at 4:07 am

            Baseless speculation? What? Are you blind? Deaf? I don’t get it. Disney purposely geared the marketing towards the OT and against the PT. Real sets, real CGI, not having any positive mention of them or any real substantive mention of them during marketing of Episode VII. To not see that is to plainly ignore what is obvious. As for Battlefront, EA talked about collaborating with Lucasfilm/Disney on the project. Developers have mentioned through twitter and elsewhere that Battlefront 2 may not include any prequel content either asked why, they respond its not our decision.

            If you can’t see the obvious, you are blind to what they are doing. Like I said, I don’t mind, even though I like the prequels, that Disney wants to focus on the future and the OT because of how much criticism PT stuff gets. Still, I wish they would allow games of today with the state of the art graphics and multiplayer ability to include additional game content from that era. There is so much there.

          • September 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm

            They geared the marketing toward the nostalgia of the OT because there were OT characters IN THE FILM. Are you blind? Deaf? I don’t get it. How can you think they would possibly market towards the PT when there are no living PT characters in this film, but there are a half dozen from the OT? Should they change their marketing just to please you? To keep you from crying on Internet message boards about how events that took place 50 plus years prior to TFA seem to have no relevance in what is happening in that specific movie? Honestly.

            WHY WOULD THEY EVEN MENTION THE PT IN RELATION TO THIS? I am seriously baffled here. Did you know many of the people who worked on TFA worked on the PT as well? They didn’t seem to have a problem with anything that was said. And clearly the marketing worked, so your hindsight seems like sour grapes for some odd reason.

            Yes, LFL wanted to center things on the OT b/c TFA is a direct sequel from the OT and not the PT. I can’t see why this simple point is escaping you. And I don’t plan on continuing this fruitless conversation. Have a good day.

          • September 18, 2016 at 11:26 pm

            Clearly you are either blind or cannot comprehend or just trolling at this point. First of all, I said I was fine with how TFA was marketed, I wasn’t bitching about that. Obviously, I was making the connection that due to the marketing of TFA it directly effected what wasn’t included in Battlefront which was a shame because there is so much content available from the PT. I wasn’t saying the PT should have been mentioned in the marketing leading up to TFA or that should have played a part in it. I understood why they were doing it and it didn’t bother me that they were marketing that film while avoiding mention of the prequels. I was saying Disney/Lucasfilms collaboration with EA led to no PT stuff in Battlefront because it was releasing so close to Force Awakens and how Disney/Lucasfilm were marketing that film.

            It was a comment directly associated with EA Dice’s Star Wars Battlefront release and why PT stuff wasn’t included. Dice didn’t get the choice. It wasn’t their decision and it sucks that Lucasfilm/Disney tied it together like that because we miss out on so much potential content for Battlefront.

          • September 19, 2016 at 1:11 am

            I agree with you 100%. However even beyond these forums people were disappointed enough with what EA gave us that the community is a shell of what it should be. It’s an entitled gamer thing apparently.

            What I do find very enjoyable is that people compare the game to BF2. Which was super fun, because Star Wars, but absolutely awful as a game. Also it was really just Battlefront 1.5. A handful of new maps. Same game engine. Space battles lol that were a rehash of Tron. We attacked awkward looking geometric shapes against a black background.


            Again. Was it 2 maps you could only play with era specific teams? Otherwise you played every map with both eras. And there were barely any differences in the factions. You played with different skins. The end.

            If EA had done the same thing yall would scream bloody murder. But since it’s BF2 it gets a pass?

            I dunno Deadly. People really were off the reservation on this one.

            But I will state this game wasn’t worth 60 at launch.

          • September 19, 2016 at 4:28 pm

            I agree that Battlefront was disappointing. I personally detest the Battlefield style of gameplay, which is spawn, run to the action for 20 seconds, die, repeat.

            The game had plenty of issues on its own. Complaining about the lack of prequels is least of them.

          • September 20, 2016 at 12:28 am

            a modernized version of BF II could have been have all time great. this is just a hollowed out version with fancy graphics and a million DLCs.

          • September 20, 2016 at 1:55 pm

            The new BF has more going on in game play then BF2 ever had. Fewer maps, but the new BF has larger and much more detailed and expansive maps then what BF2 had. You got what you just asked for. BF1.5 was a bad game.

          • September 18, 2016 at 1:03 am

            not having the biggest war in SW history in a star wars shooter is either deliberate or lazy incompetence. especially when it was in the previous one(re: the one everyone loved). i swear it was like they sat around and said what did people love about the old versions? campaigns, gone. clone wars, gone. space battles? a whole year later.

          • September 18, 2016 at 2:13 am

            Spoilers: IT’S DELIBERATE LIKE I SAID. They made the game they wanted to make, set in the OT (tieing in the Battle of Jakku makes more sense with the OT than PT setting).

            They can choose to make the game all about the OT on purpose and it not be an insult to the PT. It’s just one game.

            A cash grab? No, more likely they had to have the game out before TFA and they did what they could in the time limit imposed.

            The fact that the last Battlefront was set in the Clone Wars is reason enough to do this in the Rebellion. I don’t see why the PT must be serviced and catered to every step of the way.

          • September 18, 2016 at 3:04 am

            its not PT i want serviced but the clone wars. also, battlefront two was set in both the PT and OT which is why this narrow focus grinds my gears a bit. but i guess complaining at this point is pretty pointless. whats done is done.

          • September 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm

            PT and Clone Wars are kind of the same thing, generally.

            Again, limited time frame. One game without the PT is hardly hate towards it.

          • September 19, 2016 at 12:14 am

            EA will never get any sympathy from me or most gamers. no one forced them to rush out a half finished game just to cash in on TFA hype. thats the bed they made and now they are sleeping it.

          • September 19, 2016 at 4:31 pm

            Good thing they aren’t looking for sympathy. And as someone who is deep into gaming, the general mindset of most gamers is not something I am interested in.

            They are sleeping in it: to the tune of over 10 million sold. They are fine. Maybe do better next time.

          • September 20, 2016 at 12:26 am

            dice was, not EA, which was why they said how under the gun they were. and yes, yes, yes, i get that the games and even the movies are just vehicles to make money. and i love capitalism, but i just wish they left this in the oven longer. pre or post TFA they would have cashed in either way and we all would have been happier… at least until the next thing.

          • September 20, 2016 at 3:24 am

            I agree, it needed more.

  • September 17, 2016 at 4:06 am

    Where’s old Ben? We need more lightsaber weilders in this game..put Obi and then give the option to have Palpatine whip out his.

    • September 17, 2016 at 4:15 am

      About that last bit…;)

        Dammit I tried posting this pic like three times lmao..finally.

        • September 17, 2016 at 4:31 am

          Lol. Definitely worth the effort. 🙂

  • September 17, 2016 at 4:12 am

    Giving us a whole game from the start would be a great gimmick. 😉

    • September 17, 2016 at 4:13 am

      Nahh that’s too ballsy..having us pay for 10 expansion packs is the right way to go!

  • September 17, 2016 at 5:34 am

    The death star looks quite awesome. Finally got some space battles in there, hopefully they’re about destroying the capital ship like the trailer shows taking out some domes on a star destroyer.

    Though I have to say, is it just me or did they not put enough time into Chewie? Everything out of this game looks nearly movie realistic, but Chewbacca looks.. kinda bad.

  • September 17, 2016 at 5:42 am

    They have spent a fortune on this game and it has that Star Wars look…. until you hear the voices. Luke sounds bad enough but then you hear what Vader sounds like in this!! You just don’t get vaders voice wrong! That’s a golden rule

    • September 18, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      I don’t know why they didn’t just actual sound clips from the movie. Lando and bobs is the only one they do it with. The rest all suck

  • September 17, 2016 at 6:33 am

    Chewbacca looks like shit and all of these features should have been in the game from the very beginning.

    • September 17, 2016 at 8:09 pm


  • September 18, 2016 at 3:26 am

    Right? First glance I was sure this was an action figure story.

  • September 18, 2016 at 7:29 pm


  • September 19, 2016 at 1:31 am

    It. Is. Lol.
