Bespin Expansion

Battlefront’s Bespin Expansion Detailed and Trailered

Battlefront’s Bespin Expansion takes you on a magical journey to Cloud City in the skies over the gas giant Bespin. There Lando Calrissian makes roost and Han Solo makes carbonite.

What will be included in the The Bespin expansion (which I like to pronounce as Be-spin instead of simply Bespin)? Oh you know, the usual stuff. Two new heroes (Lando himself and Dengar the bounty hunter). Five new maps (all of which take you to familiar and not-so-familiar sights in Cloud City). The two new weapons: the EE-4 Blaster with a high rate of fire, and the X8 Night Sniper, a scoped pistol with heat vision, but it’s also certified for day usage. The Cloud City Cloud Car also makes its debut in Battlefront.

There isn’t a whole lot of info yet on the new game mode, but DICE describes it as:

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.

Last but not least, Star Cards! Three new ones, to be exact: Scout Binoculars enemies for the entire team to see. Shock Grenades stun enemies. And Disruption knocks out enemy blasters, turrets, and droids, like an EMP.

The expansion arrives on June 21st for those with the season pass. Otherwise you’ve gotta wait till July 5th.
