Players will get another chance to try out Star Wars Battlefront when the beta launches this October for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Announced via an EA press release, a few more details were shared, including what gamemodes will be in the game and a companion app.
“Coming in early October to PS4, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.”
Along with these two already announced modes will come a third gamemode called Drop Zone. Little was shared about this new mode, but more was promised later so check back for updates.
“As part of the Star Wars Battlefront Beta we are also happy to reveal the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience,” continued the announcement. “Available during the Beta on the official site, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience features the strategic card game Base Command, and lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in Star Wars Battlefront.”
Along with this players will be able to “check game stats and progression, customize loadouts and appearance, connect with friends, and get notified when they’re playing Star Wars Battlefront — as well as gather intel on their stats and progression so you can see how you match up!”
Star Wars Battlefront hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17th.
