Star Wars Battlefront has been out for almost a year now, and the game finally released more information about the upcoming DLC and even a trailer. EA Games have announced that their third expansion pack, titled Death Star is going to be released on September 20, 2016
Star Wars Battlefront has many playable characters from the Star Wars franchise such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader,Boba Fett and many others. Well, with this expansion they threw in two more characters, Chewbacca and Bossk!
Everyone’s favorite Wookie, Chewbacca is tank-ier than any other Rebel hero in exchange for his movement speed. Those who master wielding Chewbacca’s iconic crossbow will deal more damage than he can absorb. His trait, Furious firing, is connected to his crossbow. For each extra level, Chewbacca will use an extra bolt up to four extra bolts.
Multi-Bolts is his first ability which doubles the amount of bolts fired by Chewbacca. His second ability is Mighty Roar. This ability inspires rebel soldiers granting them armor for a limited time. Chewbacca’s third ability is called Ground Slam. He slams the ground dealing damage to any enemy in the target area.
Bossk’s playstyle is all about dealing as much damage as possible in a short amount of time and escaping from the fight. His trait is Trandoshan Regeneration. Bossk starts to regenerate a percentage of his health with each soldier kill or high damage to a hero.
Micro-grenades is Bossk’s first ability. His weapon, Relby-v10 switches to Micro-Grenade mode, shooting grenades that detonate after a short period of time. Bossk’s second ability is Predatory Instincts. When Predatory Instincts is activated Bossk’s perception is altered. This ability grants him heat vision, lowered cooldowns, increased damage, and increased sprinting speed.
His last ability is called Toxic Escape. Bossk leaps in the air in the direction he was facing as he drops a toxic Dioxis Grenade on the spot he was before leaping.
