Battlefront - Everything We Know of Second DLC Bespin

The second DLC expansion for Star Wars Battlefront is coming very very soon so it's time that we put together all the information we have for Bespin!

So first thing's first, the maps! We will be getting five new multiplayer maps with the second DLC. We will see familiar things from the movie, such as bridges, platforms, the white hallways of the Administrator's Palace and the corridors of the Carbon-Freezing Chambers.

Our two new heroes in Bespin are Lando Calrissianand bounty hunter Dengar. You can take a better look at them in the below picture.

New vehicles will also be appearing in Bespin., one of which is the Cloud Car! You can also see this in action in the launch trailer.

A brand new game mode is being added into the mix too. It's titled Sabotage and the official description says "The Empire has deployed several tractor beams on the surface of Cloud City that prevents Rebel ships from escaping the planet. In order to power the tractor beams, the Empire makes use of Tibanna Gas Generators that draw from the Tibanna Gas native to Bespin."

We are getting some new blasters too. The first is called the X-8 Night Sniper. "The X-8 Night Sniper is a blaster pistol with decent damage, cooling power, and range. It stands out due to its enhanced scope with heat vision, capable of revealing humanoids in most weather and times of day."

And the second is the EE4. "The EE-4 was constructed with a short and stubby barrel to allow it to fire more effectively at a closer range with spread shots. Despite the reduction in accuracy at range, the weapon makes up for it with a greater rate of fire."

Three new Star Cards are coming to the expansion too. They are: Scout Binoculars, Shock Grenade and Disruption.

The Scout Binoculars are powerful binoculars capable of revealing enemy units to the entire team.

The Shock Grenade delivers a non-lethal electrical discharge, leaving anyone caught in the field incapable of moving.

Disruption is a localized disruption wave that knocks out enemy blasters, turrets, and droids.

 Bespin will be available to season pass holders two weeks early, on the 21st of June! So if you don't already own it, make sure to go buy it! This looks like it's going to be one awesome DLC expansion!
