Scarif is a planet featured in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront, added as part of the Rogue One: Scarif expansion pack, and later added in Star Wars Battlefront II as part of the Battle on Scarif Update.[1][2] A tropical, oceanic world outfitted with Imperial installations and bases, Scarif hosts top secret research and projects for the Imperial Military, including the Death Star, and was the site of the first battle of the Galactic Civil War between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance.

In Battlefront, three maps are set on Scarif itself, Landing Pad 13, Scarif Beach, and Scarif Jungle, while one map takes place in the space around Scarif, Shield Gate. In Battlefront II, a map named Scarif Beach was added on April 29, 2020 as part of the Battle on Scarif Update.

A map set on Scarif arrived to DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II in April 2020's Battle on Scarif Update. The map is set on one of the tropical islands at a distance from the Citadel. The map features palm trees, sand bars, and crystal clear waters. It also features two daytime variants: day and sunset.[3][4]


The following is a list of maps set on Scarif:

Scarif is an idyllic world dominated by water, littered with islands, and full of palm trees and other vegetation. The maps included in the DLC explore the islands of Scarif as well as the Imperial blockade protecting the planet. Although the Citadel Tower can be seen in all three land maps, no one can actually explore the tower's interior and they remain quite distant from the imposing building.

The following is a list of maps set on Scarif:


  • Scarif beach loading screen
    In Battlefront, Scarif was the second planet to have a forest environment in Star Wars Battlefront, the other being Endor.
  • In Battlefront, Scarif was the second DLC planet added to Star Wars Battlefront that had at least one large map. The other was Bespin.
  • In both games, Scarif was the final planet added before content support was ended.
  • In canon, Scarif was an Imperial planet introduced in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The planet was home to a vital Imperial weapons and research facility, consisting of several islands connected to a central building known as the Citadel Tower. The planet itself was protected by an energy field, with the only entry point being a heavily armed Shield Gate.
    • The fledgling Rebel Alliance launched an all-out assault, led by Jyn Erso, on Scarif to secure the Death Star plans, which were housed somewhere in the Citadel Tower. Although their mission was successful, the Rebels had significant casualties and the Imperial base on Scarif was eventually destroyed by the Death Star.
  • In Star Wars Battlefront, AT-ACTs, larger variants of the AT-AT intended for cargo transport, can be seen in the distance.
    • Originally, the AT-ACT was intended to replace the AT-AT in the Walker Assault game mode, but due to its size the developers weren't able to implement it appropriately and as a result reverted to using the AT-AT instead.
