When Electronic Arts announced the $50 Star Wars Battlefront DLC pass last month, the publisher didn't say much about what it would include. EA is still not ready to divulge all the details, but now we've learned some of what will be included. Speaking during a recent earnings presentation, EA COO Peter Moore teased that the four expansion packs will add "new universes" and more to the sci-fi shooter.

What we've announced is four extra packs over the next 12-18 months coming post launch," hesaid. "You'll see new universes, you're gonna see new player actions, obviously new weaponry as well."

The Battlefront DLC pass sells for $50. Everyone who buys it gets access to all the new content two weeks before everyone else, as well as an exclusive "Shoot First" emote. Official details regarding the content of the Battlefront DLC pass will be announced in the "coming weeks," EA said.

Assuming EA and DICE follow the same setup as the recent Battlefield games, the DLC packs are likely to cost $15 each. Moore went on to to say that DLC passes like the one for Battlefront are "integral" to keeping players engaged after a game's initial release.

Also during the call, Moore revealed that preorder numbers for Battlefront are "excellent," though he did not share any specifics.

Battlefront launches on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. That's about a month before the release of Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first newStar Wars movie in a decade.
