With complaints of Star Wars: Battlefront not having enough game modes flooding the internet, it is great to see that the new free Battle of Jakku DLC will set out to try and remedy this by adding a new mode called Turning Point.
The mode focuses on the imperial army as they are tasked with holding out against the forces of New republic after the events that took place at the Battle of Endor.
Lead level designer Dennis Brannval describes the mode as follows:
“At the edge of the map, the Empire has constructed a make-shift base as well as smaller fortifications strewn across the landscape. Following an emergency landing, the Rebels need to locate the enemy bases to attack and take control of them all.
“Rebels need to locate and capture one of the three control points in Imperial control. The clock is ticking, but if the Rebel team succeeds 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.”
It has also been revealed that The Battle of Jakku DLC will not only include the new Turning Point mode but also two new maps.
The DLC will be made available for free in December 2015, just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens
