Free Trial Weekend for Star Wars Battlefront Bespin DLC

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Though they haven't made a big hubbub about it aside from posting it on the event calendar, starting today EA will be hosting a free trial weekend for players to experience July's "Bespin" DLC in Star Wars Battlefront. Much like the "Outer Rim" trial weekend before it, this weekend you'll be able to access all the maps and features of the "Bespin" expansion without owning it. A free visit to the Cloud City is nicer than a paid one, isn't it?


Similar to other DLC packs, "Bespin" added four new maps, two new blasters, two new heroes, which in this case are Lando Calrissian and Dengar, and the Sabotage game mode. There are also three achievements to be earned that require the "Bespin" DLC.

Accessing the free content does of course require a copy of Star Wars Battlefront and an Xbox Live Gold membership. Though no specific times have been given for the event to go live, the trial weekend is running from Friday, August 19th to Sunday, August 21st. If this weekend isn't working out for you, EA has already scheduled another "Bespin" weekend for September 12th, as well as a double score weekend on September 23rd. Don't worry though — we'll remind you about the others when the time comes. In the meantime, enjoy all the gaming news coming out of Gamescom and the free DLC weekend at hand.
