We can already hear the sounds of firing blasters in the near distance. EA's Star Wars Battlefront beta is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in two weeks only, on October 8th. So get the force in you ready to shoot some TIE-Fighters from the sky and spend the time waiting on the release of the game on November 17th with playing the beta. The open beta will be available until October 12th.
Three game modes are included, the Walker Assault on Hoth, which lets 40 players play simultaneously to fight over the planet Hoth, Drop Zone on Sullust, where you need to capture escape pods in 8v8 games, and the Survival Mission on Tatooine, that lets you play alone or with a friend in a co-op split-screen as you hold off waves of enemy forces.
In addition to the beta, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion, which you can access at http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront, gives you even more gameplay with Base Command. It's a strategic card game, in which you earn in-game credits to unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in Star Wars Battlefront. And you can check your stats via the Star Wars Battlefront Companion, customize your load-outs, and more.
I will make sure to get some days off to play some Star Wars Battlefront without a doubt.
JerriKoe - Game on!
