Latest Star Wars: Battlefront update allows you to go old school


Star Wars Battlefront

EA and DICE have released a new patch for the Star Wars: Battlefront game that should please traditionalists.

The February update offers the option for gamers to to add a video grain filter to the screen in order to enjoy the action as if you were playing in Star Wars’ 1970s heyday.

The option can be selected via a slider in the video menu.

However, it’s not just aesthetics, the patch brings a brand new Twilight on Hoth map added to the Walker Assault, Supremacy, Turning Point, Blast, Fighter Squadron, Drop Zone, and Heroes vs. Villains game modes.

Also, the Battle of Jakku DLC content is being patched directly into the game so newcomers will no longer need to download it from the Xbox One, PC and PS4 storefronts.

Those who’ve downloaded it can now delete it in order to free up a little hard drive space.

Alongside the additional content and functionality, there are a huge array of changes covering weapons, Star Card vehicles, multiplayer modes and miscellaneous bug fixes.

You can check them all out on EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront page (via Polygon).

Last month EA announced all of the forthcoming Season Pass content for Battlefront, which will see four new DLC experiences arrive between now and early 2016.

The first, Outer Rim, arrives next month and will enable gamers to fight within Jabba’s palace on Tattooine.

Next up is Bespin, offering an action-packed experience in Cloud City, while the eagerly-anticipated Death Star DLC arrives in the autumn.

Expansion Pack 4, which remains TBA, will arrive in early 2017.

The Season Pass costs £40.
