We've previously reported that the first DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront would arrive next year, but it looks like it'll be here earlier than we thought - with EA preparing the first DLC for the game for next week. If you haven't already checked out the 'Toddyhancer' graphics mod for Battlefront, you really need to, it looks awesome.

EA has teased new artwork for the new map, which will drop on December 1 for anyone who pre-ordered Battlefront, for everyone else it will be released one week later on December 8. The free Star Wars: The Force Awakens back story is called 'The Battle of Jakku', which takes place 29 years before the events in the movie. EA has reiterated that the two new maps that will be arriving in the DLC will help set the stage for The Force Awakens.

The DLC will also include a new gameplay mode dubbed Turning Point, where 40 players can duke it out in the Rebel Alliance as you fight against the Empire. Rebels will need to clear various checkpoints on the way to securing the Empire's base.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
