battle-of-jakku-battlefrontOne of the big bonuses to pre-ordering Star Wars Battlefront is the free Battle of Jakku DLC that arrives on December 1st.

Set 29 years before the events of The Force Awakens, the Battle of Jakku DLC for Battlefront will allow players to take part in the battle that created the setting where movie opens:

“We are proud to give you a first visual glimpse of The Battle of Jakku, coming to Star Warsâ„¢ Battlefrontâ„¢ on December 1st, 2015, for all who pre-order, and a week later for all other game holders. The Battle of Jakku was the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet.

Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Warsâ„¢: The Force Awakensâ„¢.

In the artwork above, a Star Destroyer has crash landed, and from the belly of this battle-scared metal giant, a myriad of Imperial ground troops have evacuated and engaged with Rebel troops, also strangers to this desert planet.”

For more on Jakku there is also the book “Lost Stars” releasing on Force Friday that’s sure to deal with the planet as the cover of the novel features a Star Destroyer crashing into a planet…
