Battle of Jakku DLC Out Now, Battlefront Patch Notes 1.03 Detailed
The Battle of Jakku DLC for Star Wars Battlefront is finally out in Early Access mode; only customers who pre-ordered the game can access it right now, while everyone else will have to wait for December 8.
This is the first DLC pack released for Battlefront and it’s totally free, as promised by EA Dice. As previously reported, the Battle of Jakku DLC features two new maps and a whole new mode called Turning Point which is a mix of the classic Conquest and Rush modes from Battlefield.

Electronic Arts also recently confirmed that the Battle of Jakku DLC won’t be the only free one. Aside from the paid Season Pass content, owners of the game were promised more free maps and Star Cards in the future.
