The new desert planet of Jakku will be a major setting in upcoming movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve seen extensive bits and pieces of Jakku throughout the three trailers that have released for the film.
Star Wars Battlefront will feature “The Battle of Jakku” as a playable map and game mode. We’ll get to see HOW that Star Destroyer ended up crashed in the desert twenty-nine years before the events of the upcoming film. You can catch a glimpse of the game map in a new trailer released by Electronic Arts.
EA doesn’t want you to forget that those who pre-order (BARF) the game will get access to The Battle of Jakku a whole week early on 1 December. For everyone else, the free addition to the game will come out on 8 December. If you need reminding, The Force Awakens opens in cinemas on 16 December in South Africa.
