Star Wars Battlefront reveals details of its $50 season pass and 'Hero Hunt' mode


EA have revealed the details of Star Wars Battlefront's $50 (USD) season pass, along with some information on the game's Hero Hunt mode.

Did you get chance to try the beta? Why not read our impressions of the Star Wars Battlefront beta

The season pass includes four expansion packs, as well as early access to each bit of content by two weeks. You also get an exclusive 'Shoot First' emote.

Chances are, buying the season pass up front will save you a bit of money compared to buying all the content as it arrives. However, $50 seems like a lot when you don't know what you're getting. If you aren't worried about paying for invisible things, though, you can grab the season pass on Origin.

Meanwhile, Hero Hunt sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Plus, it's a chance to get some training in as the hero characters so you can really let rip when you get control in the larger game modes. 

Each Hero Hunt match begins with a player spawning as a hero or villain, which varies by map, and seven other players spawn as normal troops and have to hunt them down. Whoever kills the iconic character - be it Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Han Solo, or whoever - then takes their place and the chase begins again. I might actually learn how to deflect blaster fire with my lightsaber in this mode.

Star Wars Battlefront launches on November 17.

I'm not even going to pick up this game until it goes on one of those crazy sales like BF3/BF4 did (I got BF4 for $10 on Origin...).

This game will be dead in around 4-5 months. People will play the shit out of it, and then get bored, because unfortunately, there's no replayability. It's great to play for an hour or two, but after that, there's really no incentive to keep playing. Just not enough content (even release content is just a few extra maps, and some more weapons/ items).

They really need to do a lot more if they want to keep the game alive in the long run... and offering expensive packages won't help.

The worst part is, because this is EA and DICE... they'll be releasing maps/ content restricted only to those who purchased it/ premium members. Meaning it will segregate the community even more.

It wouldn't be too bad if there was a server browser, since you can filter out those things, but relying on a dodgy matchmaking system that doesn't give you any freedom of choice, is what is going to kill this game.

I knew they'd be following the Battlefield Premium route for this game as well. Fell for it with Battlefield 3 and 4 and both times lost interest in the games before the last expansion was even released.

I'll pass.

I really hope the whole game will fail so bad that another company picks up the idea and makes it better than EA ever could, just like it happened with SimCity and Cities:Skylines
