Information on the Death Star expansion was announced today for Star Wars Battlefront.

It all went down during the EA Star Wars Panel today during Star Wars Celebration Europe.

The panel was hosted by Warwick Davis and featured DICE design director Niklas Fegreaus.

Bossk and Chewbacca are the two heroes (or villains depending on your alliance) included in the upcoming expansion. There will be three new maps with battles taking place inside and outside the Death Star – so plan on flying through the trench on its surface.

New vehicles will be made available alongside blasters and new Star Cards. More details will be shared in a future update.

Looking ahead, the fifth Star Wars Battlefront digital expansion, Rogue One: Scarif, will be made available two weeks early for Season Pass owners upon release.

The Skirmish mode announced earlier this week will be released on July 21, while the Death Star expansion is slated to release this fall.

Rogue One: Scarif will arrive during the holiday season.
