Who else has 20th November marked in their calendars? Yep, that’s the date we can finally play Star Wars Battlefront, and I’m practically peeing my pants in anticipation. Two and a half months seems like such a long time away, so it’s a good job EA have announced that they’ll be releasing a Beta in the meantime.
Coming in early October for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, the Beta will feature a 40-player online battle between the Empire and the Rebels called Walker Assault on Hoth. It will focus on the Empire’s AT-AT assault vehicles encroaching the Rebel base. Picture a whole load of Walkers, Y-Wings and blasters – oh, and snow. You may even get the chance to play as Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker.
The Beta will also feature a Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend have to fight off horde after horde of Imperial forces – 15 waves of Stormtroopers and AT-ST’s. There is additional mention of a mode called Drop Zone, but details are yet to be given.
So, how do you get your hands on the Beta? Well, that is yet to be revealed, but more details will be released over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled or you may miss out. In the meantime, if I find anything else out, I’ll let you know, so watch this space
