I read on The Internet (TM) that the new Battlefront game has tie-ins with The Force Awakens. Does anyone know what they may be?
Yes.... and no (there was one - see below, but there likely won't be anymore - the theory being that EA is saving TFA content for the next game version, instead of DLC)
There’s one exception: a few weeks after Star Wars: Battlefront makes its way into players’ hands, DICE will release a DLC pack to help bridge the gap between The Return of the Jedi and J.J. Abrams’ new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. The expansion is called “The Battle of Jakku,” and will let players reenact a pivotal battle from Star Wars lore, in which the newly victorious Rebel Alliance takes on one of the last remaining Imperial strongholds.
