Many video game fans have been waiting a long time for this game, which is going to be released on November 17, 2015. This will be the third major release in the Star Wars Battlefront series. However, this new Battlefront game is not a sequel to the previous games, but rather a reboot.
When the game was first announced we knew it was pretty clear that it wasn’t going to be available for the WiiU.
We knew that the new Star Wars Battlefront was going to be available for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 so many people were also hoping that it might be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well, but that didn’t happen. So if you want the new Star Wars Battlefront video game you need to have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One – unless you plan on getting the PC version.
Which Edition of Star Wars Battlefront do you want?
The first thing you need to know is that there are two versions of the Star Wars Battlefront video game for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. There is the Star Wars Battlefront Standard Edition and the Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition. The difference between the Standard Edition and the Deluxe Edition is that the Deluxe Edition unlocks 5 in-game items: DL-44 blaster, Ion Grenade, Ion Torpedo, Ion Shock, Victory.

The Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass is an optional separate purchase, but if you already know that you want to get the season pass you might be interested in the Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition. Otherwise, you can always decide to purchase the season pass once at a later time.
Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition
The Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition combines the Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition with the Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass. So if you know that you are going to want both the Deluxe Edition and the Season Pass you can get them both by purchasing the Battlefront Ultimate Edition.
If you are unsure about whether you want to purchase the Season Pass you can purchase the Deluxe Edition now. You can always get the Season Pass later as a separate purchase.
