New hori­zons


While largely set in well-charted ter­ri­tory,

Bat­tle­front does fea­ture a cou­ple of less over­played en­vi­ron­ments. One is Sul­lust, a vol­canic planet that is sub­ject to some off­screen di­ver­sion­ary ac­tion dur­ing Re­turn Of The Jedi’s attack on the part-com­pleted Death Star. An­other new map – due to be made avail­able as free DLC in De­cem­ber – is Jakku, a desert world that crops up in the forth­com­ing movie. The film’s ver­sion is home to a wrecked Star De­stroyer; the game will re­veal the events that led to that catas­tro­phe. A crash­land­ing se­quence that makes use of Frost­bite’s vaunted ter­rain de­for­ma­tion doesn’t seem out of the ques­tion, bear­ing in mind the suc­cess of Bat­tle­field 4 and

Hard­line’s map-chang­ing ‘Lev­o­lu­tion’.
