Star Wars Battlefront beta drops early October

EA has announced that the Star Wars Battlefront beta will be force-pushing its way onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Origin early in October.

But what will that beta include?

According to the dev. team at DICE, the beta will include:

  • a 40-player battle on Hoth called Walker Assault on Hoth between the Rebels and the Empire (yes, you’ll be able to play as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader)
  • a cooperative wave survival mode set on Tatooine, named Survival Mission
  • a brand new mode called Drop Zone, which DICE has yet to reveal the details of

This however was coupled with the news that any progression made in the beta will not transfer to the full game when it releases on December 1st. But hey, that’s still going to be useful for any Star Wars fans who have a lingering bad taste in their mouth from previous online EA launches.
