Characters Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma will be includes along with locations such as Jakku and Starkiller Base.
PlayStation 3 and PS4 players will also have access to exclusive DLC: the Droid Character Pack and the Phantom Limb Level Pack. Content details will be announced at a later date.
