Outer Rim, the first batch of paid downloadable content for Star Wars Battlefront, will bring Greedo and Nien Nunb to the shooter as playable heroes, Electronic Arts confirmed on the game's official website today.
Greedo first appeared in Episode IV - A New Hope, but his existence in the Star Wars cinematic universe was short-lived. He was murdered in cold blood by Han Solo in a Mos Eisley cantina. Nien Nunb, a Sullustan, co-piloted the Millennium Falcon with Lando Calrissian in Return of the Jedi.
Battlefront players will also get new locations in which to fight, namely a smelting factory on the planet Sullust and Jabba the Hutt's Tattooine palace, which consists of the gangster's throne room and sail barge garage. Outer Rim will also usher in a new gameplay mode, Extraction. Here's EA's description of the new mode:
Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point.
Finally, players will get access to new weapons — the Relby V-10 rifle and DT-12 blaster pistol — as well as new cards with Outer Rim, namely the Scatter Gun, Dioxis Grenade, and Adrenaline Stim Star Cards.
Outer Rim will be available in March. New downloadable content focusing on Bespin and the Death Star will be released as DLC for Star Wars Battlefront later this year. Those add-ons are part of Battlefront's $49.99 season pass.
