If you’ve been eager to get your hands on Star Wars Battlefront, you’ll get your chance very soon thanks to the upcoming open beta. You’ll be able to play through some of the basic game modes on October 8th, through October 12th. Sure it’s just enough to whet your appetite for its full launch on November 17th, but it’s still something fun to look forward to. From their press release:
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 for 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.
In addition, 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.
Will you be playing in the beta? We sure will be here at Cinelinx, so make sure you find us and join in some battles with our crew.
