Star Wars: Battlefront – Bespin DLC lets you play at Lando Calrissian
DICE is rolling out Star Wars: Battlefront DLC like it’s nobody’s business. First came Outer Rim, now we’re being teased Bespin – set to launch in June 2016.
The big addition being delivered by Bespin is the chance to play as everyone’s favourite administrator of Cloud City – Lando Calrissian. You’ll also get the opportunity to play as bounty hunter Dengar (shrugs).
“We’re taking players in and around Cloud City, with four new maps for all of our most popular modes,” EA explain in a statement. “You’ll see AT-ATs in Cloud City, take to the skies in Fighter Squadron, and even spend time in a carbonite chamber.”
After Bespin, the third DLC will be Death Star, followed by an as-yet-unnamed fourth expansion pack. For now you can catch up on the additions that first expansion, Outer Rim, brought into the mix.
In terms of characters, Outer Rim brought with it Han Solo’s old adversary, Greedo. There’s also Niem Nunb – if you don’t recognise the name you’ll at least recognise his flappy, fleshy face. Who would you want to play as arguably the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Star Wars universe? Well, Greedo can target up to five enemies with his multi-shot ability, and Niem Nunb can set proximity charges. Neat.
There are also new maps and weapons. Jabba the Hutt’s throne room and sail-barge garage both make an appearance in the trailer, as does the Relby V-10 Rifle and DT-12 Blaster.
4K Star Wars: Battlefront
If you want to see Star Wars: Battlefront pushed to its limit, YouTuber Jackfrags has created a real-life mod for the PC version of the game that cranks up the game to 4K resolution running at 60fps – four times the pixels of the PlayStation 4 version. Featuring eye-watering footage from the game’s various settings, the video shows just how much detail developer DICE has squeezed into Battlefront – and just how good it could look. For the best experience watch it in full screen, and make sure you have a fast internet connection and high-res monitor.
