Last year, "Star Wars" came back in full force with "The Force Awakens" during the holidays and the release of DICE's "Star Wars: Battlefront" in November, 11 years after it first debuted in the market.

One of the main goals of the game was to visually capture the films into the game, and it was with pride that the studio was able to carry out the feat. Since its release, the studio planned four DLC's, three of which have already been released. "Outer Rim" and "Bespin" have already been released, and the latest DLC "Death Star" will be available this fall.

The new "Death Star" DLC for "Star Wars: Battlefront" will feature fan favorite Chewbacca as a playable character, at long last. The new DLC will find the character teaming up with Han Solo on a journey to fight evil, most likely in the form of a new character named Bossk, a bounty hunter who is notorious in the galaxy.

Meanwhile, fans of "Star Wars: Battlefront" may have noticed that there hasn't been any single player mode in the game until last week. DICE has finally created "Skirmish mode," which allows players to partake in competitions against AI on their preferred difficulty level.

Players can opt to engage in the Walker Assault or take it to the skies with the Fighter Squadron. For those who engage in Walker Assault, expect a lot of ground battles, vehicle, air, and her combat in as much as seven maps for one to two players. There are three difficulty levels for this gameplay, namely normal, hard, or master.

"Star Wars: Battlefront" players who engage in the battle of the skies in Fighter Squadron, however, will have to deal with air combat nad hero vehicle combat, which feature X-wings, TIE fighters, and the Milleniuk Falcon. Like Wallker Assault, this gameplay also has three difficulty levels.

WhatCulture reports that the new Skirmish mode for "Star Wars: Battlefront" was mainly created thanks to the feedback of fans and gamers, and plays much like offline mode. Fans are also cautioned to not expect too much, as the Skirmish mode will not include Campaign, Galactic Conquest, or Instant Action, to the disappointment of some.
