If you are still at the office or wherever you work and have yet to download Star Wars: Battlefront through EA Access, there’s a nice surprise in store for you while you wait on the 20GB or so file to finish.

Around the 18% mark, a mini-game where you play as Darth Vader will load up, tasking you with killing waves of Rebels.

It’s more of a tutorial really, as you can’t die. But at least you get to practice being Darth Vader so that when the game finishes downloading, you know how to Force-choke the life out of everyone.

Eurogamer posted a video of this in action and it’s posted below.

The game is out next week.
