Star Wars Battlefront is finally getting an offline mode called Skirmish on July 20. The news was announced on EA’s Star Wars website by Battlefront lead designer Dennis Brannvall. The news post also revealed a September release date for the Death Star expansion pack.
The offline Skirmish mode will allow players to play single player or in co-op split screen (consoles only) against bots across two modes, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron.
Throughout Summer, free in-game events have been planned for Battlefront, including more Hutt Contracts, log-in rewards and open trials to experience the Bespin expansion pack.
Finally in the news post, Brannvall teased two new heroes coming with the Death Star expansion, namely “one larger-than-life character we know you’ve been patiently waiting for.”
A sneak peak of the Death Star expansion pack will be shown during the EA Star Wars Panel livestream this Saturday, July 16 at 11 a.m. PDT during Star Wars Celebration Europe.
