Star Wars Battlefront Open Beta Coming in Early October
You wanted a Star Wars Battlefront Beta? As You Wish.
That's the line that EA and DICE rolled with today as they made the surprise announcement that Star Wars Battlefront is coming to open beta in early October. Battlefront isn't released until November, but there have been beta experiences at countless pop culture and tech conventions in recent months, generating a huge amount of hype around the highly-anticipated game.
The Beta will be open to gamers on both console and PC platforms and gives users a chance to test out 2 of the full games' modes, Walker Assault and Tatooine Survival.
Coming early October to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta* is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars™ universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.
In addition to Tatooine Survival and Hoth's Walker Assault mode, the Beta will also give users the opportunity to play a game mode that has not yet been revealed. The Drop Zone game mode will be revealed at some point in September and playable just a matter of weeks after in the Battlefront Beta.
When it's released in November, Star Wars Battlefront will offer gamers the chance to take part in some of the greatest moments from across the Star Wars sage. Endor, Tatooine and Hoth are just a few of the famous environments that players can explore, and while doing so they'll be able to take control of some of the franchise's most famous vehicles, including X-Wings, TIE Fighters, the Millennium Falcon and even Boba Fett's Slave I.
