Hello everyone,

It’s been just one week since we launched Star Wars™ Battlefront around the world, and on behalf of our teams at DICE and EA, I wanted to thank you for joining us on this awesome journey. And what a start! Star Wars Battlefront is the biggest launch of a Star Wars™ video game ever and is the largest digital launch in the history of EA.

Even better than that, we’re thrilled that you’re having a lot of fun. We’ve been watching all of the great moments and memories you’ve been creating with your friends. You’ve proven that stormtroopers can actually aim, that the Millennium Falcon does indeed have it where it counts, and that the Force™ really is strong with Luke. In just a week, you’ve already taken down more than 15 million AT-ATs. Absolutely incredible.

Best of all, this is just the beginning. We have lots of new content coming over the next several months that will provide new ways to immerse yourself in Star Wars.

In two weeks, The Battle of Jakku launches. Taking place 29 years before the events of Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™, The Battle of Jakku is a free DLC pack* that adds two new maps (including one for popular modes like Walker Assault and Supremacy) and a new mode to the game. The coolest thing is that it’s the only place you’ll be able to experience the pivotal events that help shape the look of one of the next iconic planets in the Star Wars universe. We can’t wait for you to step onto Jakku for the first time with us.

Of course, we are also planning to support Star Wars Battlefront with new content well into the future.  We will be adding more of what you love about the game, like new maps and Star Cards, for free in the coming months, in addition to all of the content we have coming with Season Pass. We’ll have more to share soon.

Thank you again for your amazing passion so far for Star Wars Battlefront. Keep playing, keep your feedback coming and we’ll keep listening.

May the Force be with you,

Patrick Söderlund
