The first update is coming to Star Wars Battlefront as they are getting ready to release the Battle of Jakku DLC that will be available in early December. When you actually get the new Jakku DLC is really up to whether or not you pre-ordered the game before its November 17th launch.
Some of the things that we can expect with the Jakku DLC is a new game mode called Turning Point, a new large scale map called Graveyard of Giants, and a smaller close quarters map called Goazan Badlands. All threes of these additions are certainly going to make Star Wars Battlefront a tad bit more interesting.
Battle of Jakku DLC Details
- Turning Point – New game mode
- Graveyard of Giants – New game map
- Goazan Badlands – New game map
Turning Point is a new game mode where the rebels will have to capture points that are located around the map, and their biggest enemy may be time itself. The clock is ticking in this new game mode and rebels need to capture points in order to add more time to the game clock. If the rebels successfully reach the final capture point, then their team will win the match.
Graveyard of Giants will be your large map used for the Battlefront game modes that offer the 40 player games such as Supremacy, Walker Assault, and even Fighter Squadron. This map will be your full scale Battle of Jakku layout that will be played around the crashed Imperial Star Destroyer that is a centerpiece in this epoch galactic battle.
Now for your smaller maps, or for your game modes that are for a smaller number of players, there is going to be a map called Goazan Badlands. This will be some smaller section of the map that will be used for your game modes like Drop Zone, Blast, and Cargo to name just a few of them.
