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’.
