It’s been a year to the day since Star Wars Battlefront was released. To celebrate, DICE has announced what is still to come.

The last Battlefront DLC is set to be released on Dec. 6 for season pass holders. The Rogue One: Scarif DLC has been timed to coincide with the release of the new Star Wars movie on Dec. 16, and will contain content inspired by the new film.

Four new maps will be added to the game, one of which is the Beaches of Scarif that have been featured prominently in the trailers for the movie. You too will be able to scamper through tropical sands, shooting at stormtroopers while trying to avoid being squashed by AT-ATs.

As with every DLC, two new heroes will also be coming: Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic, titular characters from Rogue One. No word yet on what sort of abilities we can expect from these two heroes.

There will also be a new multi-stage game mode combining space and ground combat. Multi-stage modes were first introduced to Battlefront in the last DLC, where maps and combat around the Death Star were added to the game.

A free DLC will also be coming out Dec. 6 for PlayStation VR. Called the Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission, this add-on will allow players to fly an X-Wing from the ship’s cockpit, undoubtedly engaging in some combat along the way.

Now that all four of the promised DLCs have been dropped, EA is planning on releasing Battlefront Ultimate Edition. Purchasing this edition will give you the game plus all four DLCs built in, and will run you $69.99.

From now until Nov. 20, all maps and modes from the past three DLCs will be free to play. Player scores will also be quadrupled this weekend, making it prime time for leveling up.
