The Star Wars: Battlefront II open beta will begin on October 6th and will contains two playable game modes which are Galactic Assault and Starfighter Assault.
News broke today that the open beta for Star Wars: Battlefront II will run from October 6th till October 9th and be available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Galactic Assault mode will take place on the Naboo Map that was previously shown at this year’s E3 conference. This mode is a ground battle in which the Republic Clone troopers will be battling against the Separatist Droids. There will be four classes for you to choose from in the open beta. The four classes are Assault troopers, Heavy Troopers, Officers and Specialist with each class having different strategical role while on the battlefield.
Since this Naboo map is from the prequel-era of Star Wars films, prequel-era vehicles have also been announced to be included in the beta as well as some of the heroes from the Star Wars Franchise. Currently, we do not know what era or how many heroes will be included in the beta. As for the Starfighter Assault mode, not a lot of details were released at this time but the mode will be a multiplayer space battle that is set in the Original Star Wars trilogy. EA says that more details will be released during this year’s Gamescom in late August.
If you preorder Star Wars: Battlefront II, you will get gain entry to the beta early on October 4th as well as receiving Yoda’s Epic Lightsaber Mastery star card while supplies last. One thing worth pointing out is that Yoda Star card or any type of progress or data you achieve in the beta will not be transferred over to the main game. Star Wars: Battlefront II will be available November 17 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
