We learned last week about the the Star Wars Battlefront DLC Battle of Jakku, which will add a new 40-player game mode calling Turning Point that has Rebel forces battling Imperials for control points and, ultimately, a planetary base. And now we can see it in action.
We can’t actually play it—it’s not out yet—but we can kick back and watch some gameplay. At a glance, it doesn’t look terribly different from Battle of Hoth, but it’s interesting that EA seems to want to emphasize that the appearance of AT-ATs does not mean that the Rebels are well and truly screwed. That was a common complaint from players during and after the Star Wars Battlefront open beta: Hoth was balanced heavily in favor of the walker-equipped Imperials, and “accurate” or not, wasn’t a ton of fun.
The Battle of Jakku DLC will be available tomorrow for those who preordered Battlefront, and on December 8 for everyone else, and in either case will be free.
