Star Wars Battlefront: Battle of Jakku Teaser Trailer Is Out!

Taking place 29 years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the Battle of Jakku, a pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet.


As told in the novel Lost Stars, one of the major things that happens during the battle is the scuttling of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Inflictor by Captain Ciena Ree. The commander of the vessel had attempted to activate the ship’s self-destruct and prevent it from being captured by the New Republic’s forces, only to discover that the self-destruct had been disabled. Seeing no other option, as well as seeing a way to leave the Empire while keeping her oath, Ree ordered her crew to evacuate and then scuttled the ship by crashing the Star Destroyer onto the surface of Jakku, sending shockwaves across the desert world.


The fallen Star Destroyer is, in fact, the very same one we see in the trailer of SW:TFA!

And now, we get to virtually experience that battle through Star Wars Battlefront’s free downloadable content – The Battle of Jakku! The downloadable content will be publicly available for download for free on 8 December 2015. Players who pre-order the game will receive the Battle of Jakku DLC a week earlier, on 1 December 2015.
