Electronic Arts and DICE (via Gamerant) are offering a special holiday deal this weekend for the Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC. Players who participate in said event will be able to get some XP and credit rewards. This includes a Death Star DLC free trial.
The Death Star Free Trial weekend is going to run from December 23-25. The trial includes all the maps and modes that were originally released for the DLC expansion. It’s unknown though if that means players will have access to new playable hero characters Chewbacca and Bossk. Additionally, this coincides with the Holiday Double Score event for Battlefront. As of now, players can earn some bonus rewards when they log in for the event in the aforementioned time period. Players will receive a one-time credit of 5,000 bonus points. They will also receive double XP when they play matches for the event.
Overall, this seems like a good strategy and way to get people to play some more Battlefront over the holidays. Especially when EA and DICE recently released new content for the game based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with the Scarif expansion that just came out.
Star Wars Battlefront and the Death Star DLC are available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
