Star Wars Battlefront Beta Starts On 8th Of October
The Star Wars Battlefront beta will start on 8th of October and run until the 12th. The “technical test”, as EA puts it, will be held on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PC (via Origin).
It will include three modes on three separate planets: Walker Assault on Hoth, Drop Zone on Sullust, and Survival Mission on Tatooine.
The beta will be open to all so registration won’t be required. However, players with an EA account will be able to access the Battlefront Companion on StarWarsBattlefront.com during the beta (a mobile app will be available when the game releases). As is the norm with these tests, player stats don’t carry over to the full game.
Here’s the news post from EA:
The Star Wars Battlefront Beta is Coming October 8th
Get ready to be taken to a galaxy far, far away! Today, we are happy to reveal that the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Beta will be available for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and on PC via Origin players between October 8 and October 12. The Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will give Rebels and Imperials alike just a small taste of the Star Wars™ battle fantasies you can expect to live out when the game launches on November 17.
The Beta will let you experience three modes spread across three iconic planets including:
- 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 stormtroopers and more.
In addition to the Star Wars Battlefront Beta on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on Origin for PC, you will also get a chance to try out the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta only at www.StarWarsBattlefront.com, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience features the strategic card game Base Command, and lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in Star Wars Battlefront. In addition to Base Command, the Companion also lets players check out game stats and progression, customize load-outs and appearance, connect with friends, and more.
Whether you look forward to crushing the Rebel scum or feel like you can take on the whole Empire by yourself, we look forward to seeing all you in the Star Wars Battlefront Beta on October 8th.
