EA has announced when the open beta for Star Wars Battlefront will start. Firefights between Rebel forces and the Empire will commence on Thursday October 8 and will last until Monday October 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players via EA’s Origin service.
The beta will include three game modes. The first is Walker Assault on Hoth, which is the mode that has been featured in the majority of the gameplay we have seen so far. Next up is Drop Zone on Sullust. This is the mode that was recently announced and features teams of 8 fighting for control of pods that drop from the atmosphere. Also included is an offline and online Survivial Mission on Tatooine that has you fighting off waves of enemies. You can play this Han style or with a friend through online or split-screen co-op.
