During the “It’s Game Time: Disney Interactive Takes the Stage” panel at D23 expo in Anaheim we got something new on Star Wars: Battlefront by way of EA Star Wars General Manager Justin Mccully.

Below you can see the first piece of concept artwork of the Battle of Jakku free DLC, that will tie up the original trilogy with the new movie coming out this fall. The art features a downed X-Wing laying in the sands of Jakku.

Sony Computer Entertainment’s Adam Boyes then took the stage to announce a limited edition PS4 inspired by Darth Vader with Star Wars: Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0. It will release on November 17th both in North America and Europe.

The Disney Infinity 3.0 version will be exclusive to Walmart in North America. In Europe it will be available only in some countries, which haven’t been announced yet.

The console (which will belong to the CUH-1200 series) and the DualShock 4 will have a special livery, and will come with a 500 gigabytes hard disk, the  relative game (the Deluxe Edition for Battlefront) and the usual accessories. It will also include a downloadable code for four classic games: Super Star Wars: Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and Star Wars: Jedi StarFighter.

Incidentally, the games will be ported to PS4 with improved graphics and trophy support.

Finally, a bundle with a normal CUH-1200 series PS4 (without the special livery) will also be made available for those that don’t care for Darth Vader’s iconic helmet. This bundle will come to both North America and Europe as well.

Update: we got some better pictures from the Electronic Arts Twitter account and from Sony Computer Entertainment, you can see them in the gallery at the bottom of the post:

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
