Star Wars Battlefront Includes 12 Multiplayer Maps, DICE Confirms

May 4, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


As part of a May the 4th blog post focusing on how they created the planet Sullust, DICE revealed that Star Wars Battlefront will include 12 multiplayer maps, and there are “even more locations when you include the Star Wars Battlefront Missions.”

DICE continued by talking about how some of the maps allow you to re-live iconic moments from the films, while others are more geared towards close quarters combat:

Of the 12 multiplayer maps in Star Wars Battlefront (there are even more locations when you include the Star Wars Battlefront Missions), some feel immediately familiar — such as the lush forests of Endor or the tundra of Hoth that allow you to re-live your favorite moments from the films. Some of the maps support our epic modes like Walker Assault, while others are tailored to more intimate, close quarters combat. Our goal is to bring a variety of battle fantasies to life, with map design catering to the modes that will play out on those maps. Above all, we want you to create new memories of your own in new places you’ve never seen before.

The Battle of Jakku DLC will then add some more content when it launches for free in December.

While capturing content for their photogrammetry process was easy for planets like Endor and Hoth as they simply traveled to the real locations where the films were shot, DICE headed to Iceland in order to get a feel for the lava planet Sullust, which was mentioned but not seen in Return of the Jedi.

As with every planet, DICE wanted Sullust to “deliver a variation that introduces new themes and areas for our players to explore.” DICE adds, “The overall look and feel for Sullust is very much Imperial and under construction, playing in locations within the planet such as a lava theme, sulfur theme, Death Star-inspired theme, and lastly a mine theme.”

Star Wars Battlefront is releasing on November 17 in North America and November 20 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out some free wallpapers by following the link below.
