A recent picture of Han Solo’s DL-44 heavy blaster pistol was posted by the official EA Star Wars Twitter account and the comment “Keep it on the DL… 44,” was posted along with it. The heavy blaster pistol is seen wielded by Solo in the Star Wars movies and it seems like it will be featured in Star Wars: Battlefront.
Solo also used it in Battlefront 2 but it seemed to not be as effective against the Sith character roster. The only confirmed characters for Star Wars: Battlefront so far are Boba Fett and Darth Vader. However, DICE developers have told fans that they will be revealing more characters in the next few months.
It seems possible that there will be more heroes at this year’s E3 event in June and it could possibly even feature Han Solo himself.
The Design Director of Star Wars: Battlefront, Niklas Fegraeus, confirmed during May that EA has something quite special up their sleeve for the annual gaming event.
“What we want to make sure is that each Star Wars fan can have something really awesome to look forward to, be that epic online battles or an instant skirmish alone or with a friend,” explained Fegraeus.
“I really look forward to showing you all more from the game as we get closer to release, and for you guys who are asking me when you can see gameplay, I can tell you that we have great plans for E3.
“So tune in starting June 15, because at E3 this year, Star Wars Battlefront gameplay will make its debut and we’re all super excited to show it to you,” Fegraues stated.
