Answering a fan’s question on Twitter, EA and DICE announced that there are no plans to add Star Wars: The Force Awakens-related DLC to Star Wars Battlefront. While the game will receive four major updates throughout this year, all of the maps will be based off original trilogy locales. There was some speculation that the game’s DLC would include areas, vehicles, weapons, or hero characters featured in the seventh film.
