Today is Star Wars Day, and while I expected to finally see the gameplay shown behind closed doors at Star Wars Celebration, at least we did get something, in the form of two new images of Planet Sullust. You can see them above and below.
In a post describing the creation of the planet’s landscape, EA DICE also confirmed the number of multiplayer maps available, which will be twelve.
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.
Sullust definitely looks sweet, or terrifying, depending on the point of view. I guess digital lava isn’t as scary as the real thing…
