The highly anticipated reboot Star Wars Battlefront finally arrives later this month. However, December will see the launch of the first DLC for the game with the Battle of Jakku expansion. EA and DICE have released the first teaser trailer for the DLC, which you can check out below.
Showcasing a pivotal battle between the events of the original trilogy and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, the DLC showcases the battle of a pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key imperial holdouts on the remote desert planet of Jakku. Jakku is one of the key locations in the upcoming Star Wars sequel, but Star Wars Battlefront will be the only way to actually experience the Battle of Jakku, which takes place after the Rebel Alliance’s victory in the Battle of Endor. The gameplay map will show how Jakku becomes some a massive, battle-scarred landscape in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. One of the major beats of the map is a decimated Imperial Star Destroyer crashing to the planet’s surface.
Star Wars Battlefront launches on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The Battle of Jakku DLC arrives on December 1 for players who pre-ordered the game. It will be available for everyone else on December 8. That’s just in time to get players primed and ready for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens on December 18.
