Hi! New here, just joined because this seems to be the only Star Wars Battlefront forum around at the moment.

Anyway I don't recall the planet Coruscant being mentioned in the list, but I reckon it may be a strong possibility. As many of the maps will be based on important battles in the Star Wars Saga (eg Endor and Hoth), I think that is why they may include the Battle For Coruscant in the game.

They could have one map that is mainly concentrating on infantry with laser flying between buildings and the other one be more vehicles designed.

Anyway I've included the scans for PC Gamer Mag UK if you haven't got them already. Size big and quality is okish, sorry best I could do.

If somebody else could host the mag it would be better, the host is making me :mad:

Welcome to the forums!

I don't think coruscant would be that good, it wouldnt be such a good place to play on, and if it would be a map, it would have to be done properly with all the skyscrapers and be a huge framespersecond drop, if not the map will just be dissapointing. It's an impossibility ;)

Thanks for the magazine scans! I havent been able to read all of it but i'm hosting them now here:

i think coruscant would be an interesting map, if it was based on the lower levels of coruscant. this could create a nice urban combat map with a lot of alleys and buildings to go into.

The only other "city based battle area's that I can think of are going to be tatooine and naboo. Coresent would be a great battle field for both parts of the came (rebel ver. empire and rebublic vers. droids). all I would have to say is let me be the scout with the sniper rifle :)

I wonder, if Coruscant was included, what kind of battle would it be? We se Coruscant full of Skyscrapers and small platforms. Certainly a much better Air Battle then an Urban one.

Hehe. Now you can all see what I was talking about. I don't think that Coruscant will be there, it would be interesting, but the game isn't meant for urban-type battles.

Yeah I see what you mean. Although they could get around that by setting the maps in areas of wreckage, that aftermath of a previous battle. Therefore they would only have to render in pieces of building no higher then the trees in other maps.

That sort of map I guess would be ideal to try out your skils at driving a :atat: through the mess and also it would be a map with loads of hiding locations for the soldiers. I would view it more of a semi-urban battle.

If its the battle of Coruscant they should have this beauty:

look at it this way:

they have stated that it will be 10 different planets.
and the different planets revealed are:
1. Tatooine
2. Endor
3. Kamino
4. Geonosis
5. Naboo
6. Hoth

that leaves 4 mystery planets....

I herd that kassik, home of the wookies, was one. (wrong spelling)
That might be one of the episode 3 mystery planents

well at least one planet from episode 3 will be their. that'll suck for those who are avoiding spoilers though.

there will be x-wings in the game among other flight craft so a semi urban flight map of coruscant might not be out of the question?

new episode3 planets = alderaan? kashyyyk? that planet with the lava pit in which anakin fell into and became half a droid?

it'll probably be revealed in a episode 3 spoiler thread soon enough, until then its anyone's guess.

Kashyyk would be cool, I liked how they did it KOTOR for PC. Coruscant would be too cumbersome on most current system. Perhaps in an expansion.

HELLO! Well that was a lot of info but enjoyed(and absorbed)
Every little word in it. Thanks alot. This was on my christmas wishlist since the beginning of the year and that mag just boosted it to the top. Just hope they don't mess it up.

But that won't happen will it.;)

Cheers, took me hours trying to get the scans sorted. When I joined I wanted to contribute something to the community and hope to keep doing so.

And don't worry the game should be good. Especially with those electric chairs I have the developers sitting on. :emperor:

Coruscant can't be too hard. Stalingrad and Berlin are both cities in Battlefield 1942.

Also look at Taris in KOTOR, that's a city-planet and is handled well without too much memory loss.

If there is a battle in Episode III they might have a Corasant battle? Oh well I spelled that wrong

i think probably korriban and vjun will feature in this game or maybe taspier III

coruscant would be bad as a battleground since there would just be no room
SHAME ON YOU FOR THINKING YOU COULD CONQUER A CORE WORLD!:mad:

I want to see Coruscant and Bespin as 2 of the 3 mystery planets. The third could be whatever, I'll be happy with those two.

And there are urban battle Maps. Theed and Mos Eisley are two of them. So Coruscant is highly plausible.
