Ever since EA revealed Star Wars Battlefront in April at Star Wars Celebration, fans have been asking for a Beta. Looks like Lord Vader has granted that wish, and we’ll all get to experience the Beta come early October on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC!
More Details on the Beta
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 Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker! The Beta will also feature Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.
In addition to those two modes, there will also be a brand-new mode in the Beta, Drop Zone. More details will be shared by EA in the weeks ahead.
Star Wars Battlefront Companion
Star Wars Battlefront looks to extend the experience beyond the core game itself, with the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta at starwars.ea.com, it 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. The Companion also lets Rebels and Imperials alike check game stats and progression, customize load-outs and appearance, connect with friends, and get notified when they’re playing Star Wars Battlefront – as well as gather intel on their stats and progression so you can see how you match up!
The Star Wars Battlefront Companion will be available on the web and in the App Store and Google Play Store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on 17 November 2015.
