Fans will definitely love to know that in the Death Star DLC, they will be able to experience for themselves the thrill of flying through a trench on the surface of the Death Star.

The Death Star DLC also gives players whole new vehicles to test drive, blasters to use on enemies and also Star Cards. EA promises to share more details about the expansion sometime soon.

As it always was with "Star Wars: Battlefront" DLC packs, season pass holders will get the privilege of accessing the expansion pack two weeks before the rest.

Apart from the Death Star DLC, also coming to "Star Wars: Battlefront" is the Rogue One: Scarif DLC, which is based on the upcoming spinoff film "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."
