Star Wars: Battlefront Beta Open Today
As of 10am PST today, the Battlefront beta will be open to all on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Battlefront community manager Sledgehammer70 confirmed the news on Twitter last night. The beta includes three game modes — a small-scale solo survival mission on Luke Skywalker's adopted home planet Tatooine, a medium-sized skirmish on the volcanic world of Sullust, and a video game version of the climactic showdown between the Empire and the Rebels on the ice planet of Hoth. The latter mode in particular captures the drama and bombast of Star Wars, featuring vast, controllable AT-AT walkers, iconic snowspeeders, and a power-ups that enable movie-esque explosions. To download and install the beta, console players will need 8 GB free on their Xbox One or PS4, while PC gamers will need 11 GB.
