Slight spoiler content in how the story in Battlefront relates to The Force Awakens -

http://dorksideoftheforce.com/2015/08/1 ... s-stories/
...the “Battle of Jakku” will be a pivotal moment when the New Republic, fresh off their victory from the end of Return of the Jedi (the Battle for Endor), confronts important Imperial holdouts on the remote desert planet of Jakku, located in the Outer Rim...

...By the time The Force Awakens takes place, some thirty years after Episode VI, Jakku’s surface is littered with the crashed ships from both sides in the battle...

A couple of new Battle of Jakku art images from BF show the Star Destroyer so recently crashed that its engines are still aglow.
