Pre-ordered Star Wars Battlefront II? Start playing the PS4 beta today

Get the full details on what's in the beta, which will be available publicly this Friday, 6th October

The Star Wars Battlefront II Beta officially lands this week! For players who pre-ordered, you can access the beta later today. For everyone else, it opens up on 6th October and runs through 9th October. Players can look forward to experiencing four different ways to play in battles across all three cinematic eras.

In Galactic Assault, join a team of Separatist battle droids in a three-stage attack on the royal palace in the capital city of Theed on Naboo. As you fight, you’ll earn Battle Points which can be redeemed during respawns to call in supporting vehicles, upgrade to a B2 Super Battle Droid, or become iconic characters like Darth Maul. And when you want to take a break from multiplayer, hop into Arcade mode and play against AI opponents.

In the space above Fondor, engage in Starfighter Assault mode and hop into the cockpit of an A-wing, X-wing, or Y-wing to start your attack run on an Imperial Star Destroyer. You can collect Battle Points in this mode as well, redeeming them to activate Hero Ships like Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon and Poe Dameron’s X-wing, Black One. When the battle ends, join the Empire and help fight off the opposition.

Playing in Strike mode, players join a team of eight on the forested planet of Takodana. Take advantage of the special abilities of all four distinctive trooper classes to claim victory for your team in in a bid to breach Maz Kanada’s castle.

TITLE

These beta scenarios represent just a small portion of what you’ll be experiencing in the full release of Star Wars Battlefront II, available 17th November. In the full game, play eleven different Galactic Assault maps, travel across five Starfighter Assault maps, embark on a journey through an all-new Star Wars story in the single-player campaign, and get ready for additional multiplayer action, plus much more.

I’ve just had a quick run in the beta, before Ihad to leave for an appointment.

Can’t wait to get home again!!! ;D

I went home to start the download at lunchtime, then came back to office :) Counting the minutes… Its a shame they didn’t put a pre-download option for the beta.

Not bothered by this until it’s £3.99 with the season pass. And we all know that day will come very soon!

3.1

Probably a couple of weeks before Battlefront 3 comes out. I don’t think I can wait that long!

3.2

You do realise that this game won’t have a season pass?

3.3

All content released post-game will be free. It was stated at E3.

Unfortunately this game can be summed up as just, meh!!
