EA has just released its latest Death Star DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront, and now word is out that for the next DLC, Rogue One: Scarif, fans will be able to play as ‘heroes’ Jyn Erso and Director Krennic.

Bar a release date of December this year, there is nothing else concrete from the company however seeing as the film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, takes place in both a desert setting and tropical beach planet, we can surely expect both to appear in the last of the DLC’s.

Following this last add-on, EA will then turn its attention to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 which will arrive in stores next year. A number of other studios are also working on games that will see each Star Wars fan get a new game set in a galaxy, far, far, away every year for at least the next five.


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….
