Among the new data that has been revealed, there are new themes of old maps which may or may not make into the game at some point in the future, such as a Sandstorm Version of a few maps. Another thing revealed is that the stats of the game are now handled server side which renders damage hacks useless, which plagued the previous iterations of the game.
There also seems to be an indication of player stats page making their way inside the game, which has been widely requested by numerous players. Along with this, there seems to be a Riot Baton Weapon along with a functional image of a model of the weapon.
Lastly, there seem to be remnants of some maps whose development was abandoned including the Grievous Observation Deck and the Jabba’s Palace map from the first iteration of the game. This could be a feature that they add in the future as it was a very well loved map.
The dataminer also found Extraction which was a very popular game mode in the previous game. You can actually force your way into playing it through the split screen if you are tech savvy. New data is constantly being discovered by dataminers and be sure to keep an eye out for any further updates that they find.
