As we all know this year marks the return of (in my opinion) the best Star Wars game ever created, Star Wars: Battlefront! The release of the game was thought to originally coincide with the release of The Force Awakens, however word out of Celebration says it is scheduled for release a month before.
The new iteration of “Battlefront” takes place amid the conflicts of the original film trilogy and is scheduled for release Nov. 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
This is great news, as now we’ll have a whole month to build up to the release of The Force Awakens by playing Battlefront! The article goes on to to say how they’ll be a DLC two weeks before the film’s release in which you can play “The Battle Of Jakku,” a post-Return Of The Jedi battle taking place on the new outer rim desert world, first unveiled yesterday.
“Battlefront” will also include a free downloadable level available two weeks before “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens in theaters Dec. 18. It’s set on Jakku, the battle-scarred desert planet glimpsed in “Force Awakens” teasers. The expansion, dubbed “Battle of Jakku,” will explore the moment following “Return of the Jedi” when the New Republic confronted Imperial holdouts on the previously unseen Outer Rim enclave.
What!? That is pretty radical right? We get to actually fight in a post-Return Of The Jedi battle! I think this is such a fantastic way to connect the dots and lets us fans immerse ourselves into a new world in the most epic way possible!
