Star Wars Battlefront beta is kicking-off in early October and it has been revealed that the beta will be free for all. Meaning you won’t need to pre-order the game, or sign-up to wait for an invitation.
Players will be able to download the beta directly onto their systems and start playing. This approach will let developers stress test the game before its November release.
Battlefront beta will be available on PSN, Xbox Live but not on Steam. Since this is an EA game, you’ll need to download the beta from Origin for PC.
Beta will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, where 40 players will battle it out in a Rebel vs Empire match. Walker Assault will also let you play as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
We’ll also be seeing a Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a friend will take on waves of Imperial Forces. EA said:
In addition to those two modes, we are excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. We’ll be sharing more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead.
Prepare for the beta in October and for final release of the game on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
