    Yeah I figured that anyways it doesn’t change much, Rebels seem pretty much the same in the new ones and Empire looks worse anyways.

    If they gave the Empire a clone skin (501st) or something like the first mission of The Force Unleashed I think that would be badass for Kashyyyk. Basically it’s still Empire and then I guess you can just have Rebels as well.

    I’d actually really dig a swamp skin on some Scout Armor. that would look nice. like the Episode III clones, but the scout trooper armor instead of their’s.

    Swamp skin?? Where would that be used?

    I sort of have a feeling the Devs won’t always use movie planets, they may have more Sullust like planets, it was only mentioned in the movies but not seen and hasn’t been seen in much content.

    on kashyyyk. Either that or use a grey-ish armor color opposed to white.

    yeah. that helped the rebels a lot in the old battlefront… that and barely visible Ewoks.

    Yeah I hated the Ewoks lol they always would be hiding in bushes and stuff and there was no defence… I’m not sure if they’re in this one though right now.

    They are kinda, I’m not exactly sure how involved they will be though. Tuskens are on that Tatooine map

    Never saw any actual Wampas or anything on Hoth, actually not sure I saw a Taun Taun either…

    How do you know Tuskens are on Tatooine?

    There were some on top of one of the big rocks. I had a friend get shot by one for some reason, not sure if he went out of bounds or they just did it random.

    There werent any Taun Tauns. At least they give a good reason for you dying out of bounds 😛

    Yeah Tuskens kill you if you go out of bounds same with Wampa. I hope they do have some third party guys on certain maps though, would be kind of cool

    See new trailer? showed off some more maps

    Yeah looks pretty cool especially that one on Endor by the water and in the bunker I really liked those.

    So heroes we got:

    Boba Fett
    Han Solo
    Leia
    Vader
    Luke Skywalker
    Sidious

    Surprised we don’t have Obi-Wan but may we do an just didn’t see it, might have Lando eventually as well if they have cloud city. Imperials could use another hero as well but they don’t really got anyone left besides another Bounty Hunter like Bossk or IG-88 maybe

    I’d like a bossk or IG-88.
    But they could do something like A Shadow Trooper as well.

    Obi Wan maybe on a Tatooine map could work.

    I imagine more heroes will be made to fit certain locations.
    I want Chewbacca too!!!

    I was going to say Chewbacca as well but Rebels will have lots of heroes then compared to Empire. Hero assault would be cool eventually probably in a DLC since they usually add new game modes in DLC.

    There was a map with the sarlac and Jabbas sail barge, haven’t seen a Mos Eisley yet but I think Tatooine has 4 maps so maybe

    Yeah, we want Chewbacca too, we used him a LOT in Battlefront II. We beat the second Battlefront a couple of times, but often played the quick levels, like capture the flag at Polis Massa, and mostly assault on the Tatooine map. One day when we get to play this one we want to keep all our favorite parts of the previous game.

    Their current hero mode sounds interesting. its a 6v6, have you read about it?

    Mos Eisley hasn’t been shown, but there is a place with a city on a cliff. Maybe this is Some other town. There was. Rebel transport flying near it too. (Fighter Squadron Mode).

    Can’t imagine them not putting Mos Eisley. its one of my favorite locations in the original.

    They might not have it at launch. They got a canyon map (I think maybe 2), Sarlac map and then that city you said.

    I never saw a 6 vs 6 but that sounds pretty good for hero Assualt

    Its set up different, and I think there is another hero based mode.

    The 6v6 is set up where the goal is to eliminate the other team’s heroes I think. Starts with 3 heroes and 3 troopers per team. When a hero player is killed he respawns as a trooper.

    Oh so it’s like assassination pretty much or VIP from other games you for to take them out. That’s pretty cool but wouldn’t the Empire be sort of unbalanced? Isn’t it Vader, Palpatine and Boba vs Luke, Han and Leia

    I guess thats where the troops come in, and special abilities of the heroes.

    Well the three troops are pretty useless against heroes, probably not so much non force users but a force user can just stand and deflect some shots back and kill them instantly almost, seen it lots in the beta.

    I wonder if Palpatine will even have a lightsaber since this is OT Palpatine, he might just have force abilities which would mean Vader and Luke are the only lightsaber guys

    Vader and Luke are the only lightsaber guys. Palpatine has two different lightning based attacks from what Ive read. I think he has another force power or two as well.

    It can be done, especially with a hero backing them up. most of the slaughter i encountered did not feature the troops working together to defeat Vader. He’d catch them off guard and people would just go at it or run.

    Map predictions here, Hoth (as we’ve seen), Echo Base (full Interior), and maybe something in mountains with Wampa caves or something.

    Endor: Ewok Village, Bunker, Forest (Bunker entrance, lake, etc)

    Tatooine: Dunes, with the Homestead, rock formations, Sarlacc, and pit.
    Mos Eisley (they have to, right?)
    Anchorhead or Tosche Station? both locations mentioned in ANH. This is talking about that city on the cliff. it can’t be Mos Eisley.

    Palpatine will probably be pretty strong. I saw many guys die to Vader at once though with lightsaber throw attacks and saber deflect.

    Yeah I’ll take a crack at it:

    Endor: Ewok Village plus forest, Bunker interior and exterior area, then a large map maybe a combination of the two for Walker assault. 3 Maps

    Hoth: Trenches/ Base/ Hill map (beta this is the big Walker assault map), Maybe full Echo Base interior we saw the Falcon in the new trailer that wasn’t in the beta. The base in the beta map probably wasn’t echo base but maybe an outpost or something. 2 maps

    Tatooine: I’m conflicted on the trailer we saw the sarlac and sail barge in the dunes, not sure why the rock formations would be there or the homestead.

    I guess Mos Eisley, Rock formation area (perhaps it just overlooks a city in the background and doesn’t actually go there), Dunes (Sarlac, Sail Barge, etc). 3 maps though I could see 4 and Endor having 2

    Sullust: Smaller map we saw in beta plus a larger map for Walker Assualt seen in trailer. 2 Maps

    Jakku: Larger map maybe with rocks and dunes around the crashed star destroyer (could be used for Walker assault as well), second map in the town we see Rey at in TFA trailer. 2 Maps confirmed

    Got to remember that those bigger Walker Assualt maps are used for all different kinds of game modes, like in battlefield they take parts of the big maps and only use parts for other game modes. So team death match isn’t as big and only uses a portion of a big map and conquest doesn’t use the full map either in comparison to Rush (aka Walker Assualt here).

    Forgot about Sullust. The one around shuttle, and then one for the Factory. maybe a factory interior

    And forgot we do know one Tatooine… so Tusken village is one.

    Tusken village is sort of the cliffs map but in the trailer we saw walkers going along the canyons, that survival mission was probably just a part of a much larger map
