During the events of The Empire Strikes Back, Lando Calrissian barely had time to issue a warning to the people of Bespin as Imperial forces invaded and he was forced to flee Cloud City. But later this month, Star Wars: Battlefront is giving Lando a chance for some payback!
EA has released the launch trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront – Bespin, the latest DLC pack for the game that will hit on June 21 for fans who picked up the season pass. Everyone else will have to wait two weeks. The new footage shows Lando in action against a fierce attack from the Empire that includes AT-ATs and even the Imperial Royal Guard! Some of those locations will look very familiar to fans who remember the details of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader’s famous duel. One unlucky stormtrooper even appears to be set up to be frozen in carbonite!
The video also shows off the new cloud car vehicle and the two new weapons: the X-8 Night Sniper and EE-4 blasters. The Empire even gets a new protagonist of its own, as Dengar the bounty hunter joins the fight to conquer Cloud City. Dengar comes equipped with the DLT-19 heavy blaster, which makes him a formidable force in the battle.
As exciting as this footage looks, we’re also looking forward to this fall’s Star Wars: Battlefront DLC, which will bring the fight to the Death Star itself!
