Star Wars Battlefront's latest trailer highlights ties to The Force Awakens

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

We've been seeing that Star Destroyer half-buried in the sand for several months now, but now in the latest teaser for Star Wars Battlefront we can watch its final airborne moments before plunging to the surface of Jakku.

It's only 30 seconds but this trailer is intriguing in how it ties Battlefront to the story of The Force Awakens. For all we know, we're picking up the film with events of the present day. This very clearly depicts an establishing sequence of events that will figure into the movie, which launches a month after the game, which arrives Nov. 17.

"The Battle of Jakku" is a mission in Star Wars Battlefront being dangled as a preorder incentive, sort of. Everyone will get it for free on Dec. 8, but those who do the deed and buy sight unseen get it a week early. In either case, it arrives before Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres on Dec. 18, and hungry fans will surely pick it apart for clues to events of the film.
