For those early awaiting, DICE has revealed the two new characters that will be included in the newest upcoming Death Star expansion for Star Wars Battlefront. The first is Bossk, the Trandoshan bounty hunter that looks like a walking dinosaur with a gun, while the second is everyone’s favorite and famous Wookie, Chewbacca.

The announcement was made during the Star Wars Celebration. Unfortunately, further details on the two new characters were not released, but an image of Chewie was. Take a look at it below.


The Death Star expansion will be available to season pass holders in September. It introduces new ground and space maps, weapons, Star Cards, and the two heroes.

During the panel a very brief trailer showed a number of fighter pilots engaging in combat, the scene was very reminiscent of the Death Star assault from A New Hope.
