While the Internet Debate still rages on as to whether or not Star Wars Battlefront was worth the long wait we had to endure, I for one am super happy with my purchase. I will even admit that I bought the Ultimate edition complete with Season pass ( Ill write a separate article debating the value of a $50 Season Pass).
As I strap myself in and await the DLC onslaught that has been announced I am pleased to be receiving some early content in the form of a FREE map and game mode centered around the upcoming movie; The Force Awakens.
Below is the official excerpt from the Battlefront Official Site. Enjoy!
The Battle Of Jakku
Two new maps, one new mode – free for everyone
Prepare 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™.

Turning Point game mode
Turning Point is a vast Star Wars Battlefront game mode for 40 players, included in The Battle of Jakku. The Rebels spawn in and need to locate three control points in Imperial control and try to capture one of these. The clock is ticking, but if the Rebels succeed with a capture additional time will be added and new control points will be available for capture. Moving through these increasingly challenging checkpoints, the ultimate goal is the Empire’s base where the final stand will take place.
