Lando Calrissian will be joining the game this June as a new hero when Electronic Arts and Dice release the Bespin Expansion Pack. He is a well-known smuggler from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, who later became the leader of Cloud City.
Lando was played by Billy Dee Williams, who actually became even more well known for his Colt 45 television commercials. While many fans know about his role in Star Wars, most people remember him as the guy who loves his beer. Which is actually pretty funny.
The addition of Lando Calrissian is actually pretty cool, and we knew it was going to happen. A few months ago EA released that they were going to be bringing Bespin into the game during the summer. 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 a powerful blaster pistol, and maybe even something that relates back to his smuggling days, but unfortunately we’ll have to wait to see.
