Star Wars Battlefront beta begins October 8th
The short beta, which EA are calling a technical test, will allow players to experience three modes including Walker Assault on Hoth, Drop Zone on Sullust, and Survival Mission on Tatooine. Below is an explanation on each of these modes.
- Walker Assault on Hoth: Fight in epic 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-wing bombers. Or, side with the Empire and protect your walkers while utilizing their mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel objective.
- Drop Zone on Sullust: Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8v8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.
- Survival Mission on Tatooine: Play alone or with a friend via co-op or split-screen as you battle to hold off waves of Imperial forces including AT-ST’s, TIE fighters, elite storm troopers and more.
For those interested in taking part in the beta there are no registration requirements, all you need to do is download game via the digital store of your choice: PSN, Xbox Live or Origin. As per usual, no beta stats or progression will carry over to the main game.
Star Wars Battlefront will be available November 17, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
