View Full Version : Heroes on old maps?

Will there be heroes on maps like Rhen Var and Bespin? I've heard no mention of anything about that, but it seems unlikely they wouldn't add heroes to those maps.

Also, will we see new vehicles on old maps, i.e. ARC-170's on Bespin Platforms?

Well...sorry to break the news, but.....there is no Rhen Var and Bespin......I wish those levels were there too.

Rhev Var is not in BFII. But I think there are heroes on Bespin. . Yeah, there is! I saw a video of Luke Skywalker in the Carbon Freezing Chamber. I think there might be Episode III vehicles on old maps, I don't know. Even if there isn't, a mod can change that ;)

I don't think either Bespin or Rhen Var will be in SWBF2, but for old maps that are returning in general (Theed, Jabba's palace, Yavin IV etc). Yes I believe heroes will be included in these maps, theres no reason not to, and when appropriate yes we will probably see new vehicles on some of the older maps.

Check the "Load" file in the Beta. It shows Bes1 and 2, as well as Rhn1 and 2. So apparently they will be there, and besides, Pandemic said they wouldn't be removing any old content. And besides, if an unchanged Yavin is there, why not Bespin?

Well...I have been to the Lucasarts forums at lucasarts...and some of the moderators and game developers said there will be no Bespin or Rhen Var (also not in the guide...from the forums)and Space Endor will only be in Galactic Conquest.

Angarah

Hmmm... McCusto, can you give us a link to the video you spoke of?

Also, can I have a link to the guide on those forums?

I'll be pretty dissapointed if there isnt a Rhen Var lvl that was my favourite maps!

Same here...

Btw, Angarah, that's got to be the winner of the "biggest sig on LFN" award... ! Might want to shrink that sucker down. ;)

I like Angarah's sig, it's so much fun to watch...

Just as I feared, Bespin won't appering in SWBF 2. Maybe they will include it in a patch, like Jabba's Palace for SWBF or hopefully some modders will be able to make a Bespin map for SWBF2

Theyve also taken out prone, that kind of sucks for all the snipers out there.

no rhen var or bespin, or coruscant and endor space apparently. Probbably unlockable though.

No Coruscant space? I don't think so,
Thats the most well known space map everyone knows that Coruscant space is in theres loads of screenshots of it!?
and also endor space aswell, with the second Death Star in the background.

Kurgan
10-27-2005, 11:05 AM
Just to nitpick, but the Death Star II could have moved, it need not be stuck floating around Endor (and I know that "violates canon" but since when has that ever stopped the SWBF team? lol).

I'm guessing those maps are going to be included, unless they ran out of time for some reason, then I'd assume they'd be added in the patches. But really, the space maps should be easier to finish than the others (unless they figured we'd get bored doing the same stuff just with a different background).

I guess to be on the safe side, don't assume something is in the game, and you won't be disappointed if it turns out to be true!

There is Space Coruscant..and Space Endor....though Space Endor is only avaliable in GC...nice sig Angarah...I also liked your first one too (with Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, and Palpatine.)

There is definatly a Space Coruscant, as it is the PS2 demo... and I've played it. There is no reason to make an entire map just for a demo, that would be a waste of the devs time.

MachineCult
10-27-2005, 06:16 PM
lol, erm yeah theres space Coruscant in the full game, it's the best space map.
It's the battle above Coruscant it's a crucial Prequel Battle they would never leave it out of battlefront.

Commander Obi-Wan
10-27-2005, 06:31 PM
The Space Coruscant game in BF II is much larger than the demo.

Kurgan
10-27-2005, 06:37 PM
Demo? What demo? (PS2? Xbox?)

If you mean the beta, Coruscant wasn't in it, rather we had Space Yavin.

Are all the Space Assault maps the same? The beta one had your two capital ships, your destroyable frigates (can't go inside) and that's about it. The rest is just space to fly around in.

The PS2 demo...well..I think all the space assault or similar to each other (different landscape is about it....from what I know.)

I hope that the space battles are diffrent in number and position of capital ships as well as background planet and space debris, so they give you a good variety of space fights. The battle above Yavin IV was a smaller space battle, basicly a 1 vs 1 capital ship duel, whereas Space Coruscant is and Space Endor should be chaotic and have a lot more capital ships and frigates. Every other space battle would be somewhere between these two extreams.

What I really hope is we don't get is 1 vs 1 Yavin clones for every space battle exept Coruscant.

Commander Obi-Wan
10-27-2005, 07:43 PM
I agree with ParanoidAndroid...it would be rather boring just playing 1 on 1 battles.

MachineCult
10-27-2005, 08:20 PM
There are 1 on 1 battles but there are different kinds of debris and the ships positions aren't always the same.

MachineCult

You haven't seen it!?

It's the best out of all the Star Wars movies, it really is.
or at least it's best of the Prequels.

ParanoidAndroid
10-27-2005, 08:51 PM
Yes, definetly see the movie before you play the game, you get a better "ive seen this place before" feeling, it should make the maps more fun.

ahh that's good to hear... something I have been wondering about and hoping for...

are the hangers on the droid command ships in the game?

Out of curiosity, how small was space coruscant in the PS2 demo?

Commander Obi-Wan
10-27-2005, 09:02 PM
Well....there was like four capital ships and a bunch of starfighters.....also just to confirm, to what I meant bigger is there is more objectives and more space to move around and you'll be able to enter rooms in the capital ship.

I also have a question..though it may be stupid...I have no idea what it is...what does pwn mean?

beat, like owned and pawned put together.

Are there more capital ships in the full map?

The reason that I asked about the droid ships is because you could fly to one in the demo but the hanger bays were not open.

Angarah
10-27-2005, 09:20 PM
Yes, how many Capital Ships on the Coruscant Space? I'd like to see around 6, though I may be dreaming....

LOL, closed doors on Droid Capitals?

"Sir, two Jedi are flying towards us"

"Close the blast doors"

Obi-wan: "Uhh..Anakin...why are those doors shut?"

Anakin: "Its an illusion, master, we can probably fly right through it"

Obi-wan: "Okeedokee"

*BOOM!*

Sorry, I have a very active imagination :D

Four capital ships eh? sounds alot to me, but then again I'm used to there being only two. There will also hopefully be plenty of frigates (those unboardable minor capital ships, basicly floating gun turrets) above Coruscant as well to really give it a chaotic feel.

metalmilitia
10-27-2005, 10:53 PM
Oh, just in case anyone misunderstood me, I mean hangers in the Droid Control ships from Episode I not just the CIS capital ships. I mean can you go in the crescent shaped capital ships.

Have you played the map commander?

(It's a cool screenshot though isn't it)

EDIT: No, thats way too close to be inaccessible, it's blatantly not the background it's full 3D brush, those 2D Cap Ships far away are the background, the Control Ship is as close if not closer than the other assesible Capital Ships.

From the traillers it looked like there was more than four capital ships...(sigh) too bad that's all there is in the game, would've been more challenging and realistic if there was more.

In the Demo, you could pretty much get down to it but it was closed to enterence and didn't shoot or anything, it was just decoration. A lot of the background ships are 3D too and you can ALMOST get to them, but you have to turn around right before.

Actually, in the demo, there were 5 with hangars but there was one CIS hangar you couldnt land in, and one Republic hangar you couldnt land in, totaling 1 Rebublic capital ship, and two CIS capital ships. Theyre probably going to fix it so you can land in all of them, though.
