Star Wars Battlefront Beta Kicks Off October 8

The Star Wars Battlefront beta is a couple of weeks out and will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Electronic Arts (EA) has now announced the dates that players can partake in the beta.

The beta begins on October 8 and will run through till October 12 and will offer up three maps and game modes:

  • Walker Assault on Hoth
  • Drop Zone available on Sullust and
  • Tatooine will play host to Survival Mission which will also feature co-op with both online and offline play.

EA and DICE will also beta test the Star Wars Battlefront companion app during the beta period. DICE recently confirmed dedicated servers for Battlefront and this beta test appears to be a stress test of sorts for the servers. Hopefully this will result in a silky smooth launch for the game when it hits.

Star Wars Battlefront ships on November 17th 2015.
