EA has said one thing, but now GameStop is saying another. A GameStop listing for Star Wars Battlefront's Outer Rim has revealed the price of the DLC and has listing a date that conflicts with what EA has said about the pack's launch.
Last week, a new page for the Outer Rim went up on the Battlefront website, and it offered some basic details about the DLC. One of those details was that the digital expansion was set to arrive March 2016.
The Outer Rim DLC is priced at $15 in the GameStop listing. While EA has indicated that the DLC will launch sometime this month, the seller says it will be available for download on April 5.
No, the March date doesn't appear to be some sort of timed exclusivity for one console or the other. Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 listings for the DLC indicate that the content will be available for download on April 5.
While the release date may be just a tad curious, fans of the Battlefront franchise should not be surprised by the $15 price tag for the expansion. But for those who bought the game's $50 season pass, that price tag won't matter because the expansion is included in it.
Whenever the expansion pack arrives, it'll bring with it four more maps. Those maps include locations on Sullust and Tatooine. The DLC will also deliver the Relby V-10 rifle and DT-12 blaster pistol, along with three more Star Cards, which include the Adrenaline Stim, Scatter Gun and Dioxis Grenade.
Along with all of that, the Outer Rim will introduce Nien Nunb and Greedo into the game. Rounding out the new DLC is a new game mode, which Dice is calling "Extraction."
"Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources," reads the DLC's description. "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."
