Does ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’s’ Outer Rim Bring the End Game?

Star Wars: Battelfront:  Outer Rim is here and it’s time we start seeing reviews and opinions about the additional downloadable content so you can decide for yourself if you’re interested in playing it. Or maybe you’re already playing and you just want to see what others have to say about it. Well, we already know that the Outer Rim has increased the level cap to 60. What else do we know about it?

Todd Kenreck, contributor to Forbes.com says it brings a much need end game. His summary:

“The maps are richly detailed, the weapons fill some key gaps and the new heroes are a massive surprise. I give Star Wars: Battlefront’s Outer Rim an 8 out 10.”

That’s a pretty good rating. So what are some reasons he likes the new content so much? Well, we’re hearing some of the same things from others who are playing. Extraction as a favorite mode, new abilities and weapons, and more gives players something else to strive for in the game. Of course, that is always the point of new content – to keep the players coming back for more – but it’s nice to see when a new content pack does what it is intended to do.

Here’s a video with some more thoughts from Todd:

Another bonus is that the new content takes more than just credits to unlock. It encourages you to get achievements by doing different things in the game. It changes up the gameplay and gives you more to enjoy. So what do you think? Are you playing Outer Rim? What do you love about it?
