After you finally see [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158), you probably feel rather complete and content. But now that we've seen the film, the wait begins. The wait for more. We'd love to get any additional information on the future of Star Wars and where its narrative will go, but we'll have some time to wait.

Up until that point, we were hoping that games might be a place to celebrate Star Wars 7. Sadly, it won't be happening with the most recent Star Wars game - [Star Wars: Battlefront](tag:2684021). We were hoping that this new multiplayer might include elements of the film in its future DLC expansions. But word from DICE has shut down that dream until they make another Battlefront game.

Star Wars 7 Won't Be In Star Wars: Battlefront DLC

In a recent tweet from the official EA Star Wars Twitter account, the team responded to an inquiry as to whether we'd see any of Star Wars 7 in future DLC packs for Star Wars: Battlefront. Here was the response:

Our team is focusing on the original trilogy for this release of Star Wars Battlefront.

Bummer. It seems that DICE and EA are focusing solely on the originals this time around in order to keep the likes of The Clone Wars and Star Wars Episode 7 for future Battlefront titles. EA has already confirmed that they're starting work on Star Wars: Battlefront II so I suppose we'll have to wait and see whether Finn and Rey will be appearing in later installments. But who does that leave us with then for future DLC packs?

What Heroes & Villains Await Us?

When you look at the original Star Wars trilogy, who can you see appearing as a hero or villain in Star Wars: Battlefront? We're more than likely going to see Chewbacca, that would just make sense! But EA stated that over the next few packs of DLC 4 additional heroes and villains would be gifted to those that have the Season Pass.

Personally, I'd love to see someone like Lando Calrissian join the ranks with Chewie. But what about the dark side? We already have Boba Fett, Darth Vader and the Emperor! Who remains? It isn't likely that we'd be able to play as Grand Moff Tarkin or Jabba the Hutt...right?

Perhaps EA will give us a powerful stormtrooper or something along those lines, but can you see what sort of villains could enter the fray in Star Wars: Battlefront DLC packs? Let us know in the comments below!
