Star Wars Battlefront 2 officially releases on 17th November but the Beta starts TODAY, October 4th. So how do you play and what’s available in the beta?
Although it starts today, that’s only for those of you who have pre-ordered the game. For those lucky people it’s available to start playing from 9am, so the most astute of you will already be knee-deep in Stormtroopers! For those of us who haven’t pre-ordered, the beta goes live from 9am on Friday 6th October. It is due to finish on October 9th at around midnight UK time.
According to the official EA Star Wars website, the beta will include three different modes.
- Galactic Assault on Naboo, fighting as either Clone Troopers or the Separatists over the Royal Palace
- Strike on Takodana, where First Order Troopers and Resistance Forces battle over Maz’s castle
- Starfighter Assault above Fondor, where Resistance Forces and the Galactic Empire duke it out in space battles, trying to destroy or defend a Star Destroyer
There are also daily challenges available to complete, and every player of the beta will get a Founders Crate reward filled with goodies as a thank you from the developers, including credits, an exclusive emote for Darth Maul, and a rare trooper Star Card to give them a head start in battle.
Good Luck on the Battlefront!
