Get ready to strap in and take flight! Star Wars: Battlefront brings you the Battle of Jakku, 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 as shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Battle for Jakku DLC will also introduce a new game mode – Turning Point.

Turning Point will pit 20 players of the Rebel Alliance to defeat 20 troopers of the Empire to portray the epic efforts to take down the Empire after the Battle of Endor where the Rebels need to locate and capture one of three control points in Imperial control.

With the starfighters with other thigns on their minds, Turning Point will feature airspeeders and AT-STs. In contrast to its role in Walker Assault or Supremacy, the AT-ST is a slightly more defensive vehicle in this mode. Piloting it, you will need to move between areas a lot to meet the Rebel assault. If you’re in an airspeeder on the other hand, you’ll be on the offence, giving supportive fire to your Rebel team mates.

Players who pre-ordered Star Wars Battlefront can already join the fight now. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8th, 2015.
