Battle of Jakku, set 29 years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, comes with a new map on Jakku and a 40-player mode called Turning Point. You can watch the gameplay video above to get a closer look at the new map and more.

Even more DLC is coming to Battlefront in 2016 when the first of the game's four paid expansion packs is slated to arrive. In addition to paid content, EA will offer up new maps and modes for free to all players.

Battlefront launched on November 17 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game broke records for publisher Electronic Arts, though it underperformed at GameStop. In other news, the lead singer of the band Breaking Benjamin really, really hates Battlefront. Multiple sequels are reportedly also on the way.
