There will also be a level cap increase, according to Sledgehammer70 (Battlefront Community Manager) who details more here:

“Did I mention level cap increase? Yes, all players will see a level cap increase to level 60 once Outer Rim arrives.”

Outer Rim also comes with a brand new mode that we now know is called Extraction. Here is the description:

“Rebel forces have entered some of the most dangerous places in the Outer Rim in order to extract a valuable shipment of resources. Now they must bring the shipment to their transport ship before time runs out. The Empire has arrived to stop them from reaching the extraction point.”

Additionally, Outer Rim comes with the following weapons and Star Cards:

  • Relby V-10 rifle
  • DT-12 blaster pistol
  • Scatter Gun (Star Card)
  • Dioxis Grenade (Star Card)
  • Adrenaline Stim (Star Card)

The Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass DLC starts this month and the first pack is Outer Rim. A release date for Outer Rim has not been announced, but it’s coming sometime in March and will followed by other DLC packs.

Outer Rim, and the three other expansions, are included with the $50 Battlefront DLC pass.
