EA and DICE have revealed further details on the introduction of Chewbacca and Bossk for the forthcoming Death Star DLC of Star Wars: Battlefront.

The developers described the process of developing Chewie as both “scary and exciting” because there is “such passion around him“.

Armed with his signature bowcaster, Chewbacca can deal out even more damage than he can take. You will find his bowcaster even more powerful than the troopers Star Card as it initially only shoots one explosive bolt and doesn’t have a hold and release behaviour…but it does have its own tricks.

As for Bossk, the developers said they wanted him to feel like a “destructive and nasty opponent who would also have the skills to escape dangerous situations“.

He is an enemy that you just can’t get rid of, his sustainability on the battlefront is higher than most and he will be using his classic Relby-v10 – improved from the soldier version to have a bit more punch to it.

The Death Star DLC is due out this month on Star Wars: Battlefront for PS4, Xbox One and PC. A new trailer for the expansion pack is expected in the next few days.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
