EA Star Wars Battlefront Twilight On Hoth; Feb. 2016 Updates
EA Star Wars Battlefront has released their free update for February and it features plenty of great content that should keep fans happy as EA continues to offer plenty of free quality updates for the game.
The new content features a new map, “Twilight on Hoth” which is available for Walker Assault, Supremacy, Turning Point, and Fighter Squadron. The map contains harsh wind and snow set against a darkened setting to create a moody and unique atmosphere in game combat.
The map features a limited visibility for players to contend with as the darkness and driving snow makes finding enemy units a bit harder especially the white-clad Snowtroopers. The map also has a sizeable amount of open terrain for players to cross which makes you an easy target for walkers and enemy fire. Thankfully there are caves and crevices throughout which once you have a better understanding of the layout, will allow you to surprise your enemy. I do wish the makers would add random elements such as cave ins and a Wampa to the mix as it would be great fun to have to contend with the forces of nature even more when in combat.
The popular Turning Point mode introduced in the Jakku content update has now been expanded to include all maps that support Walker Assault and Supremacy so player will have even more options to experience this competitive and intense mode of gameplay.
There is also a new Ice Caves survival map for Hoth where players can fight solo or co-op against increasing difficult waves of Imperial Forces. I was able to complete the mission solo on my first attempt and it was a nice way to work on my skills in a new setting.
There are other summary tweaks and features which enhance the overall game experience and the developers have promised that despite the scheduled release of the paid DLC next month, there will be another feature packed free update for players to enjoy.
I have not had any issues with the content of the game as the developers have and continue to provide plenty of content to enjoy and are giving additional content to players without requiring them to purchase the DLC.
It is nice to see that EA and Dice have addressed the fact that many fans thought the included content for the game at release did not justify the retail price, and as such have listened to fans and continued to offer new content and tweaks to enhance the game.
I look forward to seeing what is coming next.
