Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta Date Announced

News Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

Loads of news happening in the gaming world about Star Wars Battlefront 2 and its predecessor at the moment with Battlefront DLC available on EA Access. Now EA have announced that the Battlefront 2 beta will be running from the 6th to the 9th October, or, if you pre-order, available 2 days earlier, running 4th October through to the 9th.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is released on 17th November 2017, and subscribers to EA Access will be able to play about a week earlier!

The beta lets you play 2 game modes;

  • Galactic Assault on Naboo –  This is a 40-player battle on the streets of Theed. You choose from four trooper classes: Assault, Heavy, Officers and Specialists. There well may be some surprises too, with the possibility of classic heroes and vehicles available.
  • Starfighter Assault. This lets you take part in a space battle set during the original trilogy era. You pilot various Star Wars ships in an objective-based, multi-stage battle.

We saw the Galactic Assault level at E3, and it did look quite special.

I'm the wrong side of 40 and I love games with great stories and multiplayer fun with friends. I started my gaming life on a Commodore Vic 20 (Google it!) Most importantly, I hold a strong belief that you should be as excellent to people on the internet as you would to them in real life!
