Star War Battlefront II Beta

What Is Included

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta consists of four modes, across various maps.

Galactic Assault: Two teams of 20 players fight against each other in a large-scale battle. Players will either play as Clone Troopers or Separatist droid. This game mode will take to a place on Naboo in an area called Theed.

Starfighter Assault: This is a 24-player space battle where players will fight through the skies to take the enemy team down as fast as possible. Players will get to try out the new starfighter classes and even take control of the Hero Ships from the past game, original, and new Star Wars series.

Strike: This new mode is pretty cool and sees you take control of different classes in a constant clash between your team and the opposing one. This mode has no heroes to choose from, rather classes of droids and Stormtroopers, each of them with their own unique skills and weapons. The game mode is objective-based so you will need to stick together as a team and push the enemy back to ensure victory. Strike takes place on Takodana.

Arcade: Last but not least we have the arcade mode which is part of the main game’s drive to offer a single player experience to the Star Wars fans. This game mode is set on Naboo and will see you, and an optional friend, take on enemies alongside a team of AI allies.

There will also be daily challenges to complete during the Star Wars Battlefront II beta. These are called “Daily Challenges” and they will change daily with new tasks to complete. The best thing about this is that there will be challenges for each mode, so it will not restrict your current mood for the choice of game mode to what you are stuck with completing the challenges.Star War Battlefront II BetaLast but not least, those who participate in the Star Wars Battlefront II beta will get an exclusive founder’s crate that will be unlocked in the main game when it launches. This will include an emote for Darth Maul, rare trooper Star Card, and credits to use in-game.

Go forth and take over the galaxy, gamers and may the Force be with you. Star Wars Battlefront II beta is live now, with the full game releasing on 17 November 2017.
