Electronic Arts posted a new development blog on their Star Wars Battlefront site recently. It describes how the DICE team were sent to Iceland for artistic inspiration, as they plan to include the planet Sullust as one of the 12 playable maps the game will have when it launches on November 17. The better-known locales Hoth and Endor have also been confirmed for playable worlds, as detailed here:

Of the 12 multiplayer maps in Star Wars Battlefront (there are even more locations when you include the Star Wars Battlefront Missions), some feel immediately familiar — such as the lush forests of Endor or the tundra of Hoth that allow you to re-live your favorite moments from the films. Some of the maps support our epic modes like Walker Assault, while others are tailored to more intimate, close quarters combat. Our goal is to bring a variety of battle fantasies to life, with map design catering to the modes that will play out on those maps. Above all, we want you to create new memories of your own in new places you’ve never seen before.

Players who pre-order the game will also have the opportunity to access a 13th map, the Battle of Jakku, on December 1, with everyone else getting the chance to play it on December 8. The Battle of Jakku is free downloadable content, so there is no additional charge to play it.
