Lando Calrissian will be joining Star Wars Battlefront this June as a new hero when Electronic Arts and Dice release the Bespin Expansion Pack. Lando is a well known smuggler from the Star Wars movies, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, who later on became the leader of Cloud City after giving up his mischievous days.
Lando was played by Billy Dee Williams, who actually became even more well known for his Colt 45 television commercials. While many fans of Star Wars will know about his impact on the film, most everyday people will simply remember him as the guy who loves his Colt 45.
The addition of Lando Calrissian to Star Wars Battlefront is actually pretty cool, and we could have almost suspected it was going to happen. A few months ago Electronic Art and Dice released the fact they they were going to be bringing Bespin into the game during the summer – and how can you have Cloud City without Lando? You just can’t.
It will be interesting to see what they choose to equip this hero with in terms of weapons and specialties. We should expect an upgraded blaster pistol, and maybe even something that relates back to his smuggling days, but unfortunately we will have to wait until more details are released.
