What are the two things that come to mind when you think of Cloud City? If you said Carbonite and Lando Calrissian then congratulations you are of the same mind as EA! If you said Ugnaughts and Storm IV‘s then congratulations you are our Editor-in-Chief Jordan!
While we’re pretty sure we’ll still see Ugnaughts and Storm IV’s, EA is announcing even bigger news for their Bespin expansion. Lando Calrissian and bounty hunter Dengar will be playable characters when the expansion comes out on June 21, 2016, for Season Pass owners!
Unfamiliar with Dengar? If you’ve watched the original trilogy then you’ll remember him as one of the Bounty Hunters in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
Below is EA’s description of the Bounty Hunter:
Dengar is a villain that thrives on being in a fight. He wields the DLT-19, which makes him the first Hero with a heavy blaster so far.
As for Lando, well he’s still our favorite smooth-talking smuggler:
Lando is very skilled with a blaster too, but his greatest talent comes from knowing the odds and using tricks against his enemies.
Additionally, gamers who purchase Bespin will receive two new blasters, X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters (pictured).
You’ll also be able to play in some of the most iconic locations within Cloud City and the Administrator’s Palace, including the Carbonite Chambers.
EA plans on releasing more info soon. Possibly within the next few days during E3 2016. It only makes sense as the expansion is only a couple of weeks away from its release.
Star Wars Battlefront: Bespin expansion will be available to Season Pass owners on June 21, 2016 and then two weeks later for everyone else.
