Star Wars Battlefront II Open Beta Is Starting This Weekend

Star Wars Battlefront II, the new one not the 2005 classic, is getting an open beta. EA and DICE are taking the biggest feedback of the first new Battlefront, lack of content, to heart and is now making bullet points of it in promotions.

If you prefer to try the game yourself before release, this weekend is the time. It will begin on October 4 for those that pre-ordered, but the open beta will kick off on October 6 (4PM local time, GMT+8) and ends on October 9 (12 AM local time).

The beta will include Galactic Assault in Naboo, the 20v20 mode showed back at E3, Starfighter Assault on Fondor (space battles using ships), Strike on Takodana (no hero classes allowed, map based on a scene in Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens), and Arcade mode on Naboo which supports two-player split-screen.
