‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Beta Launches October 8th

Star Wars gamers rejoice as DICE’s latest game is going into open beta early next month.

With only a little under two months until launch, EA and DICE have finally opened up about an open beta for Star Wars Battlefront. Thankfully, the wait isn’t much longer, either! This morning EA officially stated that the beta will launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 8th and will end on the 12th.


DICE also listed all the maps and game modes coming in the beta. Check them out!

Walker Assault on Hoth: Fight in epic 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-wing bombers. Or, side with the Empire and protect your walkers while utilizing their mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel objective.

Drop Zone on Sullust: Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8v8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.

Survival Mission on Tatooine: Play alone or with a friend via co-op or split-screen as you battle to hold off waves of Imperial forces including AT-ST’s, TIE fighters, elite stormtroopers and more.

Although it isn’t necessary for a beta, it’s awesome that EA and DICE are giving players a chance to try the game’s singleplayer component as well in the “Survival” game mode.

In case you missed it, EA confirmed that Xbox One owners who are subscribed to EA Access will gain five day early access to the full game starting on November 12th.
