Star Wars Battlefront has a lot of people excited. Not only is it a return of the classic multiplayer franchise, but Battlefield developer DICE is taking the reins, and what we’ve seen so far has been awesome. Today, EA has revealed the launch date for the game’s beta, which’ll be hitting the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. From October 8-12, players will be able to shoot it up across the Star Wars universe in three modes:
Walker Assault on Hoth: Fight in epic 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-wing bombers. Or, side with the Empire and protect your walkers while utilizing their mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel objective.
Drop Zone on Sullust: Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8v8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.
Survival Mission on Tatooine: Play alone or with a friend via co-op or split-screen as you battle to hold off waves of Imperial forces including AT-ST’s, TIE fighters, elite stormtroopers and more.
Coming alongside the beta will be the Star Wars Battlefront Experience, which comes with the Base Command card game and lets you customize your game appearance, talk to friends, view stats earn in-game credits to unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in the game.
Star Wars Battlefront hits stores for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17.
