Star Wars Battlefront will launch on November 17 with 12 maps, Electronic Arts confirmed in a blog post.
“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,” the post reads.
“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 blog post itself details the creation process of Sullust, one of the planets featured in the game.
Of course, that 12 map count will expand to 13 in December. Users who pre-order the game will get the “Battle of Jakku” map free on December 1, while users who don’t can also get it for free, albeit a week later on December 8.
