DICE have revealed that there will be no infantry-based map set on the iconic Death Star space station in Star Wars Battlefront.
A DICE community manager shared the news on Reddit when asked if the map existed. They responded by saying: “We will not offer a Death Star-based map. But stay tuned for details around the maps we will offer.”
On day one, a total of 12 maps will be available and presumably more will be offered via DLC.
“Fight in epic Star Wars battles on iconic planets and rise through the ranks playing as the heroic Rebellion or the evil galactic Empire. In 2004, the original Star Wars Battlefront came onto the scene and took gamers – and Star Wars fans – by surprise. It was an ambitious action shooter that gave players the opportunity to step into the shoes of their favorite Star Wars characters, pilot quintessential Star Wars vehicles, and relive classic Star Wars battles. Fast forward nearly 10 years and gamers still have many of those same Star Wars gaming fantasies – but now they wish to experience those larger-than-life battles in magnificent high definition, with all of the amazing special effects, vehicle physics and gameplay intensity that the next-generation has to offer.”
Star Wars Battlefront launches on November 17th on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
