Anyway, so the first DLC came out the other day which is a few missions and a few multi-player maps (including some in the new The Last Jedi settings. We also meet a new character called Shriv, a Resistance fighter from a race called the Duros who fought for both the Resistance and the Empire as well as being mercenaries and bounty hunters throughout the galaxy. You may remember Cad Bane, from the Clone Wars animated series - he's a Duros.
Now to us 40K fans, the Duros do look suspiciously like a certain race of encroaching imperial mech warriors fighting for The Greater Good called the Tau. This may not have escaped the attention of EA, because in a scene from the new Battlefront 2 game, Shriv needs to use his call sign to identify himself - and it's not the usual Star Wars type - it's "7-3-Tau". For EA to use the Tau name on a race that have been in the Star Wars universe for so long and GW may have been "influenced by" is full circle stuff.
Pretty cool!! The Gridmark in the largest cinema franchise in history! Nice work EA!
