Electronic Arts & DICE revealed a teaser for their upcoming action video game, Star Wars: Battlefront‘s ‘Battle of Jakku’ downloadable content.
“As debris from battles above shower the desert ground, the feeling of chaos is intensifying.
A Star Destroyer has just crash-landed and some of its engines are still smoking. The battle has just begun…”
The teaser gives us a first glimpse at the Battle of Jakku dlc, get it after the break:
“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.
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.”
Pre-order the game now to receive ‘Battle of Jakku’ dlc on December 1, 2015 and other games will receive the DLC a week later.
“In the artwork below, a Star Destroyer has crash landed, and from the belly of this battle-scarred metal giant, a myriad of Imperial ground troops have evacuated and engaged with Rebel troops, also strangers to this desert planet.”
This intensity of battle was one of the aspects that DICE Concept Artist Anton Grandert wanted to convey when creating the Jakku artwork. The size difference between the visual elements was another:
“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.”
And true to the core gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront, the artwork features many different aspects of Star Wars battle fantasies – on land and in the sky.
“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.
Star Wars: Battlefront will be available on November 17 in NA, November 17 in EU & November 20, 2015 in UK for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A month ahead of J. J. Abrams’ upcoming American epic space opera film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
