Earlier today Star Wars Battlefront developer Jesper Nielsen took to Reddit to dispel any concerns of issues with downloadable content, along with how much content will be included in the base game.
"I cannot stress this enough; there will be more than 8 maps!" he wrote. "Also, the amount of content in the game has absolutely zero to do with DLC. I can say that with all honesty.
"As for expanding on strengths of the previous games; I think most people will find that it does expand on the strengths of the previous games, when it comes to core gameplay and what the feeling of a Battlefront game is. Just my two cents.
"Please don’t make me break what I can and cannot say, but if you think there’s anything we’re not including in the game to save it for DLC, I can tell you you’re 100% wrong. In this project, I’ve never heard anyone say 'Let’s not do this for launch so we can do it as DLC instead'. Ever.”
It's nice to know that EA is willing to cure our fears of map availability and content is not being cut simply to released later as DLC.
Star Wars Battlefront releases November 17th here the US and November 17th in the UK.
