Star Wars Battlefront games are well known for their massive large scale battles that take place on huge maps with vehicles and spaceships all fighting it out at once. Blast is anew gameplay mode coming with the altest iteration of Battlefront that will feature smaller scale 10 v 10 battles on much smaller maps to encourage constant conflict.

To keep the action dense in this close-quarters mode, the Blast maps are not as vast as in other game modes. You should know that they are all specifically designed for the specific game mode in mind; in other words, these aren’t just smaller versions of maps used elsewhere. Brännvall notes that this variation is crucial and something that can be noticed in other ways too:

“Say you've just played Walker Assault mode on Hoth and then switched to Blast, still on Hoth. Thanks to variations in lighting and time of day, you'll definitely see a difference.”

For players transitioning from CoD or Halo this mode will be a welcome addition as it mirrors those two games style of smaller spaces and teams. You can read all about Blast on the official blog post Here.
