A few months ago, the dates for the Star Wars Battlefront 2 official beta were revealed. The beta will take place between October 6th and October 9th, but those who pre-ordered the game will receive access to the beta two days earlier on October 4th. Here are the details of the beta that were initially released:
“The beta’s focus will be on Battlefront 2’s gigantic 40-player skirmish The Galactic Assault on Naboo, the location and game type that was shown off extensively at EA Play. With the options of playing as either the Seperatists (The Droid Army) or the Republic (Clone Troopers), the beta will give you access to four classes (Assault, Heavy, Officer and Specialist) as well as a number of prequel-era vehicles.
Battlefront 2’s beta will also give players access to the game’s Starfighter Assault mode in which you’ll ‘be able to take part in epic 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.'”

And for those of you who want more information about the story of Star Wars Battlefront 2, here are some of the details that were reported last month:
“Star Wars Battlefront 2 focuses on telling the story from an Imperial point of view and follows an Imperial black ops team known as Inferno Squad, led by Iden Versio, after the destruction of the second Death Star. Bridging the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, Battlefront 2 explores what it means for the Empire after their infamous defeat.
In the video, we hear that characters will grapple with what choices they will make about who they are and what the galaxy will be like going forward. Iden, along with other members of Inferno Squad introduced in the trailer, are all loyal to the Empire despite their different upbringings. Because family is such an integral part of the Star Wars franchise, we received a better look at Iden and her father’s relationship and dynamic.
Throughout the entire trailer below, there were pieces of concept art, footage from mocap sessions, and discussions with the developers and voice actors.”
