Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront at Star Wars Celebration, you’ve been asking us if there would be a beta. Today, we are thrilled to finally be able to answer that question – and the answer is yes!
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.
In addition to those two modes, we are excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the beta, Drop Zone. We’ll be sharing more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead.
As part of the Star Wars Battlefront beta we are also happy to reveal the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. 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.
In addition to Base Command, the Companion also lets Rebels and Imperials alike check game stats and progression, customise load-outs 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! The Star Wars Battlefront Companion will be available on web, the Apple App Store and Google Play store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on 17th November.
We’ll have a lot more info regarding the Star Wars Battlefront beta in the weeks ahead, so be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation Blog, follow us on social, and sign-up for our newsletter to get all the latest news.
