The final DLC pack for Star Wars Battlefront arrived this month to piggyback on the hype generated by "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," the same way the base game did when it launched a month before "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" last year. It's probably going to be a trend moving forward. After all, Electronic Arts is the handpicked publisher of Star Wars video games.
However, the latest DLC called "Rogue One: Scarif," is not off to a good start. Many players are currently experiencing an assortment of issues. The most prominent of which was the reported inability for players to access their previous DLC content. And apparently, the problem affected all players regardless of platform.
Thankfully, EA acted swiftly on the matter, releasing a step-by-step procedure on how to work around the DLC locks. According to EA, the problem was due to the license files. That's one down. All they need to do now is address the other numerous errors and bugs that came with the Rogue One: Scarif DLC. The current list includes kills made by the "Sonic Imploder" not registering and Challenges failing to respond or resetting entirely. Maybe the developers forgot to fine-tune the DLC due to their own excitement over the new Star Wars movie?
Rogue One: Scarif is the fifth and final DLC for Star Wars Battlefront, following the "Death Star" DLC. And as you would expect, it is heavily based on the Star Wars spinoff movie. Two new playable heroes are included in the DLC: Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic. You can explore the planet Scarif where the movie's final act took place (uh, spoiler alert?) as well as control the "U-wing."
Star Wars Battlefront was released in November last year. It's a reboot of the Star Wars: Battlefront series, last represented by Star Wars: Battlefront II on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Xbox and PC. That game came out in 2005. Despite criticisms, mostly regarding its lack of single-player content, Star Wars Battlefront went on to sell over 13 million copies. The game is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
