Last month, at EA Play, we gave Star WarsTM fans a small glimpse of the future of EA Star Wars games and the projects our teams at EA are working on now. Today, during an EA Star Wars panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe, Warwick Davis sat down with a few of our developers from DICE, BioWare, Visceral Games and Capital Games, alongside Matt Fillbrandt from Lucasfilm to reveal much more.
To kick off the panel, Niklas Fegraeus, Design Director of DICE gave fans their first look at the highly anticipated expansion pack, Star WarsTM BattlefrontTM Death Star*. Available for Season Pass* owners this September, DICE confirmed there will be combat in space and inside the Death Star, new maps, weapons, star cards and two new heroes, the bounty hunter Bossk and everyone's favorite co-pilot, Chewbacca.

John Salera, Executive Producer of Capital Games touted the recent Mods update to Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. He then unveiled a new in-game AAT Raid, showing a gameplay video and announced it would be playable soon.

And for Star Wars: The Old Republic, James Ohlen, Director of Design for BioWare helped celebrate the game's upcoming 5-year anniversary, revealing a brand new digital expansion pack coming this fall, Knights of the Eternal Throne. The all new expansion pack adds more of BioWare's trademark cinematic storytelling, as well as exciting new game features in one of the largest updates the team has made since the game launched in 2011.
BioWare also released an infographic, compiling some of the community's most impressive feats over the last five years.

And as one last reveal for the crowd, panel attendees learned that the fourth and final expansion pack to Star Wars Battlefront releasing this December will be Star WarsTM BattlefrontTM Rogue One: Scarif. You and your friends will be able to see the highly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and then continue the battle with heroes from the film this holiday.
