Information on Star Wars: Battlefront are gradually trickling down thanks to developers keeping the channels of communication open with the fans, and today we got some new information and a tease:
Community Manager Mathew Everett teased the fun we’re going to have while piloting AT-ST walkers, also saying the same afterwards about missions.

These are unique Troopers only found on Sullust.
Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall also mentioned that the multiplayer maps won’t be just barren outdoor environments:

Producer Jesper Nielsen elaborated further on Reddit:
There’s also indoor sections on the planets.
Finally, Design Director Niklas Fegraeus teased a bit about one of the newer game modes:
Hope you all had a great May 4th! I spent mine on Endor testing one of our newer modes. With some success I might add #ThermalDetonatorFTW

While the tweet is a little vague, the hashtag seems to indicate that the thermal detonator might be the focus of the mode.
Of course this is just a guess, but for those unfamiliar with what a thermal detonator is, you can find a good description on the ever-useful Wookieepedia.
