EA Shows First Look at the Battle of Jakku in Star Wars: Battlefront!

Jakku 01

The Battle of Jakku is a free downloadable level from the upcoming game Star Wars: Battlefront, set to be released on December 8, 2015 (or December 1st if you pre-order the game). It takes place 29 years before the events in The Force Awakens. Read on for more details on the game and what to expect from the release.

 

 

From EA:

We are proud to give you a first visual glimpse of The Battle of Jakku, coming to Star Wars™ Battlefront™ 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 Wars™: The Force Awakens™.

DICE Concept Artist Anton Grandert shares some thoughts on the shown artwork above:

 

“There’s a David and Goliath theme to this,” says Grandert. “The epic, huge super structures of the Star Destroyers contrast against the tiny but brave Rebel soldiers fighting the Imperial forces.”
“We wanted to portray a battle completely surrounding you, in every direction. Debris is falling from the sky, telling the story of battles above. On the surface of the planet you can see ground troops as well as X-wings, all taking part of the fight,” Grandert says.
