Concept Art from Electronic Arts:
DICE Concept Artist Anton Grandert wanted to show the real intensity on the events of Jakku. ?We wanted to portray a battle completely surrounding you, in every direction. Debris is falling from the sky, telling the story of battles above. On the surface of the planet you can see ground troops as well as X-wings, all taking part of the fight,? Grandert shared.
