EA has finally announced the beta dates for Star Wars Battlefront 2, which will be taking place on October 4 - 9 for early access members. The game will also feature an open beta period, which will take place on October 6 - 9. For those that would like to play the beta as an early access member, you'll need to pre-order Star Wars Battlefront 2 from a participating retailer to receive an early access beta code.
So what's in the multiplayer beta? EA has revealed that they'll be just one 40-player multiplayer map, Naboo: Theed in Galactic Assault. If you've been following Star Wars Battlefront 2 for the past several weeks, then you'll be very familiar with the map, as it was shown off during EA Play. Players will fight it out in massive 40-player battles on the streets of Theed with four trooper classes; Assault, Heavy, Officer and Specialist. But the beta doesn't end there.
EA has also announced, that we'll finally be able to play in a space battle, on a map called Starfighter Assault. Up to 24 players will be able to dogfight in a space battle set during the original trilogy era, with various Star Wars ships in an objective-based battle. We'll be getting our first look at Starfighter Assault at Gamescom next month.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 releases on November 17, 2017.
