Fight the Dark Side Starting on October 8 in Star Wars Battlefront’s Open Beta

From October 8 to October 12, Xbox One and Windows PC gamers are invited to participate in the Star Wars Battlefront open beta, for a glimpse at what you’ll be in store for when the game launches on November 17. Star Wars Battlefront gives you the chance to jump into the epic battles of the Star Wars saga as Rebels or Imperials, and includes never-before-seen locations that will make their big-screen debut in this December’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The Battlefront beta includes three missions, on three iconic Star Wars planets. Walker Assault on Hoth is a massive 40-player battle, pitting Imperial AT-AT Walkers against a fleet of Rebel Y-wings. Drop Zone on Sullust is an eight-on-eight battle for control, as you rush to take possession of crashing escape pods. And finally, Survival Mission on Tatooine allows you to play solo or co-op (via split-screen) as you fight waves of Imperial units, including AT-STs, TIE fighters, and elite Stormtroopers.

Awesome, right? Join in on the open beta, starting on October 8. And make sure to pre-order your copy of Star Wars Battlefront – available November 17 on Xbox One and Windows PC – to get a full week of exclusive access to the Battle of Jakku content pack.  And don’t forget: if you’re an EA Access member, you’ll be able to play the game before its release for a limited time, only on Xbox One.
