Details, Including Start Date, About the Star Wars Battlefront II Open Beta Announced
The EA Play event at E3 this year benefited from being one of the earliest events to kick off the conference, allowing its big reveals to occupy a significant amount of the spotlight before the rest of the major press events began. It was quite clear that they intended for Star Wars Battlefront II to be the highlight of their showcase, with the trailers and live competitive gameplay as the main feature. One of the biggest announcements from this event was the confirmation of the Battlefront II open beta, but not much was revealed about the event besides its existence. Now, more details have been announced, including when players will be able to participate.
EA has announced on their official website the dates for the Battlefront II open beta as well as other key details for the event that will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC through EA’s Origin service. The beta will be open to the public starting October 6th and it will run until October 9th. However, fans who pre-order Battlefront II will be able to play the beta earlier than the rest of the public on October 4th. As an added bonus for pre-ordering before October 9th, Yoda’s Epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card will be included.
The open beta will consist of the Assault on Theed mode that was seen in the live demo at the EA Play event at E3, which pits the Republic army against the Separatist droid army on Naboo. In addition to this, there will also be a Starfighter Assault mode playable for those that like fighting while flying instead of on the ground. More details about the beta will be announced at Gamescom next month. What do you guys think about the Battlefront II open beta? Will you try it out? Let us know in the comments below!
