Publisher Electronic Arts has given us a first look at the Battle of Jakku, the DLC players receive for pre-ordering Star Wars Battlefront.

The first look comes as a pair of concept art showing a crashed Star Destroyer being engulfed by a battle just outside of the ship. EA also gave us some information along with the concept art, saying:

The Battle of Jakku was 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™.

Here are the two pieces of concept art released for the Battle of Jakku:

I find it really cool that this DLC is coming out before Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released. It’ll be nice to get a chance to experience the world of The Force Awakens before seeing the movie, plus the concept art does look pretty bad ass.

Star Wars Battlefront is scheduled to be released November 17 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Battle of Jakku DLC is scheduled to be released December 1 for players who preordered Battlefront, and a week later for everyone else.
