Premise[edit | edit source]
Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. 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 Wars: The Force Awakens.
This DLC was a tie-in with The Force Awakens and is the only DLC from the sequel trilogy that is present in the reboot. It was originally released to players who pre-ordered the game, but it was later released as a free download sometime in February. Jakku was also the first planet that Turning Point was used on.
