Available for all 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 (also below), and announced it would be playable soon.

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. BioWare also released an infographic (which can be found here), compiling some of the community’s most impressive feats over the last five years and the Star Wars: The Old Republic 5 year Anniversary video.

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 Wars Battlefront 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!
