EA and DICE have been keeping all the Battlefront information close to their chest, but they have divulged to IGN some new concept art that confirms some locations in the game. New information regarding the gameplay in Star Wars: Battlefront has also been revealed.
In a recent IGN-First, the concept art that was revealed to be the Ewok planet of Endor where rebels and stormtroopers are battling it out in the forest. In an interview with Star Wars: Battlefront design director Niklas Fegraeus, he reveals that players can also expect to visit the ice planet of Hoth. Here’s a portion of the interview:
“The scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety depending on the location, Fegraeus explained. Hoth, where the Rebel Alliance fought off invading AT-ATs in snowy plains, will differ in size than the dense woodland of Endor. We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes, and what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.”
It’s interesting that they will be tailoring certain maps to specific modes, which may lead to a lot of favoritism in modes if we only see certain locales in specific game types. The thought of a game where one minute you are running from an AT-AT and the next you are shooting it out inside a rebel base is pretty cool. Fans will have to wait until later this spring when DICE is expected to pull back the curtain on Star Wars: Battlefront.
