EA has today revealed that the Star Wars Battlefront Beta will begin early October on PS4, Xbox One and 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 a Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.
In addition to those two modes, a brand-new mode will also be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. More details will be shared on that soon.
As part of the Star Wars Battlefront Beta, EA has also revealed the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta on the official site, 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 Rebels and Imperials alike check game stats and progression, customise loadouts 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 web, the Apple App Store and Google Play store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on 17th November in North America 19th November in the UK.
