It has been one year and four days since the Battle of Endor. The recent destruction of the Imperial factory on Sullust had a bigger impact than originally assumed and Admiral Ackbar is calling all Republic ships to Jakku . The entire Imperial fleet is there - minus the weapons lost at the factory. Iden Versiocommands her team to get in and help. When they arrive, the battle is in full swing. There are too many distress calls to count. Iden and Shriv get in their fighters, leaving Del to protect the ship. As they do, the ship takes a hard hit and the X-Wings are ejected out of the hangar. The pilots regain control and with Del's help, locate two nearby distress beacons. They eliminate immediate threats in the area. A nearby downed Imperial Star Destroyer is launching bombers. Iden and Shriv land their fighters nearby and make a run for the hangar, hoping to shut it down. Iden assumes there will be remote detonators available somewhere in the wreckage.

This battle starts in the sky with Iden in the cockpit of an X-Wing. As players head for the first distress beacon, TIE bombers will exit a downed destroyer. Take them out (An achievement can be unlocked here, take down 8 enemy fighters to earn the "X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter" achievement) and land outside the downed ship. Iden will need to find remote detonators. These are located in crates outside the hangar, but there will be crew members and a defense team already outside on the ground with orders to protect the ship until the extraction team arrives. The crates are not too far apart but getting to them will require clearing the area. Look for a Rocket Launcher near the first crate. Pick this up. It will auto-slot as Iden's fourth ability (F2 for PC). Once inside the hangar, plant the detonators on the TIE bombers. There will be two. There is also a rack inside to choose a rifle if desired. As players head outside, the Imperial extraction team will arrive and players will have to fi...

Eons ago, the planet Jakku was once covered with green vegetation and oceans. At some unknown point, the planet was reduced to a barren desert wasteland. However, the planet's core still had the vital spark of life essence, something which disgusted Sheev Palpatine. About 1,000 standard years before the Battle of Yavin, the Plaintive Hand plateauwas the site of an event that was regarded as significant by Palpatine. He believed that the site would become significant again in the future. The human boy known as Galli grew up on Jakku. As an orphan, he was raised at an orphanage run by the Anchorite Kolob, who lived a life of austerity and strict obedience. Galli chafed under Kolob's care and longed to travel to a better world. In 30 BBY, Palpatine and his Adviser Yupe Tashu traveled to Jakku to supervise an archaeological dig on the Plaintive Hand plateau. During that trip, Palpatine encountered a twelve-year old Galli, who had stowed aboard his yacht Imperialis. He took the young boy...

Twenty-nine years after the Battle of Jakku, wreckage from the battle would still be strewn across the desert in the aptly named Starship Graveyard, with Niima the Hutt establishing Niima Outpost sometime earlier in an effort to scavenge leftover wreckage from the destructive battle. The up-and-coming First Order, successor state to the Galactic Empire, would deploy its freshly-minted Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Finalizer to Jakku in an effort to recover a BB unit. This unit, BB-8, possessed a fragment of a map to Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, who had gone into self-imposed exile following a failed attempt at resurrecting the Jedi Order. This attempt would see the defection of stormtrooper FN-2187 and the escape of Resistance pilot Poe Dameron in a stolen TIE/sf space superiority fighter, along with the eventual use of the neglected starship the Millennium Falcon in an attempt to escape the planet with an unknowingly Force-sensitive girl named Rey.
