Part of the allure of Star Wars Battlefront is seeing how it translates classic scenes from the movies to the video game world. How will it handle Jabba the Hutt's palace, for example? As of this week, you now have a good answer to that last question. EA and DICE have posted a trailer for the imminent Outer Rim expansion that gives you a solid look at Jabba's home, whether it's the vast sail barge garage or the tighter confines of the throne room. The clip also offers a peek at the volcanic world of Sullust and the two new hero/villain characters, Greedo and Nien Nunb -- Greedo's multi-shot ability looks like it could be a real ace in the hole when you're surrounded by enemies.

The Outer Rim pack (which also includes five new weapons/cards and a new Extraction mode) arrives on March 22nd, so you won't have long to wait before you can explore things first-hand. Be ready to pony up, though, as you'll have to get it using the $50 season pass. And in case you're wondering: while the trailer does pit Han Solo and Greedo against each other, it sadly doesn't say who shot first.
