A Marshland planet in the Outer Rim, covered entirely by various forms of fungi. The Planet is known for its dark nature, as well as being a location of the arachnid-like Acklay. Featuring several hiding spots for sniping like a huge tree and a downed AT-TE from the Clone Wars.
Felucia is a planet of extreme fungal growth, filled with unusual flora consisting mostly of gigantic plants. It is briefly shown in Revenge of the Sith when Aayla Secura is shot down in the Order 66 sequence. In Battlefront II, the heavy fog and plant life limits visibility, with only the gigantic tree stump as a place where much can be viewed. Also, the some vegetation are near transparent and ammunition commonly hit it rather than the enemy units behind them. Also, like Dagobah, the AIs have an advantage to see through the fog and camouflage. It is a common misconception that the Acklay that attacked Obi-Wan in Episode II: Attack of the Clones derived from this planet, when their homeworld is actually Vendaxa.
Felucia is the most inhospitable battleground in the game. Thick fog, holes in the ground that emit poison, it all adds up to a mess. The map is wide open, enemies can travel through the thick forest, making it impossible to secure a frontline. Even with 750 units per team, You'd be lucky to win with more than 30 units left. Keeping a command post is virtually impossible, so a victory must be secured by wiping out all the enemy units. The map benefits no one, as there are no tactical advantages for either side.
Easter Eggs Edit
- If you listen closely to the ambience of the map, you will notice that sound effects from Jurassic Park are used such as the roars of the Dilophosaurus and Velociraptors from the film.
