The Planet: Vespaara

You can find anything on Vespaara—as long as you’re willing to pay for it. Found at the planet’s southern pole, perpetually angled away from the sun, this rocky “oasis” lives in eternal twilight. With every hour considered “magic hour” it is the perfect location to put on the round-the-clock spectacle that the Arena hosts. What’s more, there’s an amazing year-round aurora effect in the sky that constantly shifts and reforms, appearing like a celestial audience of sinister red and purple eyes, always staring down. The show never ends.

The Hutt Ship

The centerpiece of the Arena complex is a one-of-a-kind custom-built command ship, the spherical emplacement hovers over the Arena, covered in advertisements for upcoming events and products.



Ewok Village – Based on the forrest moon of Endor, this map includes a faithful depiction of an important Ewok cultural site. This battlefield is full of detailed reproductions of authentic-looking Ewok dwellings and structures: it’s like you’re actually there amongst the trees and high-rise platforms where the fall of the Empire started.

Mos Espa Podrace – Hold on to your helmets because this battlefield is a wild ride! Evoking a recreated vista of Mos Espa—home of the famous Boonta Eve Classic Podrace—as its environment; Podrace is where the Arena owners have diverted their repulsor craft pod races to fly through this Tatooine-inspired map to add chaos.

Dune Sea Outpost – This arena recreates an abandoned trading outpost on Tatooine where all manner of scum and villainy in the universe once conducted nefarious business deals. Characterized by Mos Eisley architecture, it is now a prime location for smugglers to hide their stolen bounty.

Death Star Crossfire – Players will navigate the crossfire of these warring factions, as X-wings and TIE fighters swoop overhead past heavy fire from Turbolaser towers. Navigate devastating crash sites and classic Imperial interiors in this exciting new Arena experience!

Vandor Railyard – This new multi-modal map is set on an Imperial Railcrawler Facility, nestled deep in the mountains of Vandor. Players will not only be up against their foes, but they will also face the challenges of the steep cliffs, and you won’t want to be hit by the moving train passing through the map!
