Star Wars Battlefront II Open Beta Set for October 6

Electronic Arts have announced the launch date for the coming Star Wars Battlefront II open beta.

The upcoming multiplayer-focused shooter game will enter open beta from October 6th through the 9th. If you pre-order the game, you’ll get access to the open beta a few days earlier, on October 4th.

Here’s what you can expect from the beta, via the PlayStation Blog:

Galactic Assault on Naboo

  • Join the Separatist droid army or the Republic Clones on the streets of Theed in massive 40 player multiplayer melees.
  • Choose from four distinct trooper classes:
    • Assault troopers are classic flankers, pushing the line forward and advancing the front.
    • Heavy troopers use their high-powered weapons and personal body shields to take ground and hold it.
    • Officers power up their teammates with buffs and deploy remote weapons to support their allies.
    • Specialists lay traps and snipe from a distance.
  • Control beloved Star Wars heroes, pilot prequel-era vehicles, and more.

Multiplayer Starfighter Assault

We’re not sharing all the details around this yet, but we can tell you that you’ll be able to take part in an epic starfighter assault set during the original trilogy era, piloting an assortment of Star Wars’ greatest ships in an objective-based, multi-stage battle. You’ll be learning much more about starfighters in Star Wars Battlefront II at gamescom.

Star Wars Battlefront II is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 17th.

    Just saying man, they’ve been in every game but the 2015 one, which was obviously rushed – it’s a strange thing to complain about in this series. And I’ll take the pottery over bland Disneyshit tbh, you can at least laugh at the prequels.

    I just feel that they’re both bland and shit but if I had to pick I’d go with Disneyshit because at least it feels like an extension of the OT be it a boring one.

    Wait only 40 players? Is this console only? I thought they supported 64 players on all platforms.

    Sadly that’s Battlefield’s thing, not “Battlefront”. Classic Battlefront games supported up to 64 on PC though iirc
