In the wake of Star Wars Battlefront‘s gameplay trailer, EA Dice has released a new teaser trailer this week which offers a glimpse of the Battle of Jakku. Jakku, the desert planet from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will be featured in the game on two maps. They will give the players a chance to participate in the battle which formed the planet’s history, 29 years before the events of The Force Awakens. The intent to intertwine the game and the upcoming film is obvious, but it certainly will be interesting for the fans to take part in events which, presumably, created some of the wreckage Daisy Ridley’s character Rey, was sifting through in the Episode VII trailer.
The Battle of Jakku will be available to all players from 8th December as downloadable content, and for those who pre-order the game it will be available a week earlier.
