We still don’t know anything about what’s coming in the Star Wars Battlefront paid DLC, but hints of free add-ons have emerged. A video from EA Brazil that has now been removed, suggests what’s coming next for the shooter.

VideoGamer reports that prior to its removal, the video discussed a new map and some new looks for our heroes. The new battleground is allegedly set on Tatooine. It’s not clear if this is a big map for Walker Assault, something smaller, or both.

The video, which was translated by (which still has a copy of the video), also indicates that there are new outfits coming for Luke and Leia. You can also hear mention of daily challenges and private matches, which stand out even if you don’t speak Portuguese. 

We’ve reached out to EA for comment. We’ll update should we receive a response. For more on Star Wars Battlefront, check out our review.

Our Take
While I’m still eager to see what EA and DICE have cooked up for DLC content, this gives us reason to rejoin the fight. I’ve had a great time with Walker Assault, and I hope the new map supports that mode.
