A ton of new updates hit Star Wars: Battlefront!

Today EA has updated Star Wars Battlefront with new maps, hero outfits, challenges, and more. Now you have the option to play as Princess Leia in her Endor outfit. (That probably should have been available since the game was first released.) We play a lot of Star Wars Battlefront, so any little update is welcomed.  Information Via PlaystationLifeStyle.Net.
