EA recently unveiled the content we'll be able to enjoy within the first DLC pack for Star Wars: Battlefront. Outer Rim is set to bring us new locations on Tatooine and Sullust, a new mode called Extraction, new weapons and Star Cards, along with two new heroes and villains. But the announcement for the latter two is a bit of a disgrace.

The two new heroes and villains that will be joining the fray in March are Greedo and Nien Nunb. Really? They are basically new skins for characters you can play as in the regular build of Star Wars: Battlefront (provided you actually dedicate the time to level up that far). What happened to the other "iconic heroes and villains" in the Star Wars universe and who will follow in further DLC packs?

It's annoying. We're getting a bounty hunter that died after missing his target at point blank range and an alien that sat next to Lando Calrissian on the Millennium Falcon and simply laughed and shouted. How are these iconic? Don't fans deserve better villains and heroes in Star Wars: Battlefront? Or are EA and DICE building up to something bigger? Let's see who we could have in future DLC packs, for there are still three more heroes and villains EA has promised:


Chewbacca - Chewbacca has already been spotted in Star Wars: Battlefront, so it seems extremely likely that he will appear as a hero in future DLC packs. The question is, which one?

Lando Calrissian - The original owner of the Millennium Falcon (who lost it to Solo in a game of sabacc) is a total badass that Battlefront will surely be including in the future. But who would be his main rival?

Obi-Wan Kenobi - The original Obi-Wan Kenobi. If Star Wars: Battlefront has made the choice to focus on the original trilogy, then it would be criminal to not include wise old Ben. Maybe the Death Star DLC will introduce him, seeing as this is where he made his last stand?


Bossk - One of the many bounty hunters that was tasked with hunting down Han Solo, Bossk is a well respected guy amongst Star Wars fans. This red-eyed reptilian being is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, who wouldn't want to play as him?!

Tusken Raider - These are formidable foes and some of the most iconic villains in the Star Wars universe. In fact, they're the first foe that Luke Skywalker encounters and seeing as they have awesome weapons of their own, they'd be a great choice for a playable villain.

IG-88 - This robotic being was seen as the chief rival to Boba Fett and yet another feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. He is a war droid that survived the Clone Wars who then turned to bounty hunting in the aftermath. Could be a great choice to fight against Lando in future DLC packs.
