Star Wars Battlefront Beta To Launch In October
The Star Wars Battlefront beta is set to launch on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 in October, EA has announced.
While the beta will include a variety of modes, we are probably most excited to try Walker Assault on Hoth – a 40 player battle featuring Rebels versus the Empire. This also means we will have the chance to play as both Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.
If that doesn’t take your fancy you’ll also be able to play Survival Mission on Tatooine, and Drop Zone, a new mode DICE is yet to detail.
While progression in the beta will not transfer over to the final game, DICE is also launching the companion experience in October. Available on the official site, it includes a card game, Base Command, and also lets users earn in-game credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons and other in-game items. Should you want to, you’ll also be able to customise loadouts, check progression and mess around with your in-game appearance.
Star Wars Battlefront is due to launch 17 November for PS4, Xbox One and PC via Origin.
