Your Next Star Wars Battlefront Hero Is… Nien Nunb?

You might have been hoping for Chewbacca. Perhaps you’re holding out hope for Lando Calrissian. How about Grand Moff Tarkin, General Weiss, or even Wicket the Ewok? Nope. You get Nien Nunb.

Who is Nien Nunb you ask? He’s a Sullustan that flew in the Millennium Falcon alongside Lando in Return of the Jedi. Executive editor Andrew Reiner went more in-depth as Nunb and Greedo (of dead-in-a-cantina fame) were teased last week.

The two are part of the Outer Rim expansion (the first of four coming in the season pass). That pack also includes a new location on Sullust and Jabba’s throne room and sail barge garage on Tatooine.

A new game type, Extraction, which features the Rebel players attempting to get a resource shipment off-planet. The Empire is, as you might expect, trying to stop them.

There are also new star cards: the Scatter Gun, Dioxis Grenade, and Adrenaline Stim. You can equip two new guns: the Relby V-10 rifle and DT-12 blaster.

Outer Rim is due out in March. For more, check out our review of Star Wars Battlefront.
