The time has finally come my fellow Star Wars geeks! Star Wars Battlefront is finally coming to a console or PC near you! Sony published the news on their official PlayStation Blog today that the long awaited Beta will begin October 8th and carry on through October 12th.
The Beta will include two missions previously available at E3 2015 and San Diego Comic-Con 2015, a 20-v-20 fight on Hoth and a two-player co-op survival mission on Tatooine. Also being introduced in the Beta is a new map and game mode and an 8-v-8 Drop Zone match on Sullust.
Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8-v-8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.
In addition to the Beta, there will be the launch of the official Star Wars Battlefront Companion Experience available on the Star Wars Battlefront website. This will include unlockables and rare-items in game on the Beta and the final release of the game.
The Beta is open enrollment, so signing up is not required. I look forward to seeing you all on the battlefield!
