“The single largest beta in the history of EA.”
Over 9 million people logged in and played the Star Wars Battlefront beta, making it “the single largest beta in the history of EA.” For perspective, that number tops the population of Ireland (4,635,400), Norway (5,189,435), and Switzerland (8,279,700).
“Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront back in April, we knew the beta would be a huge test for our game,” said Senior Producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir. “After all, the beta has been one of the most talked about topics around the game over the last six months, and it was exciting (and a little nerve racking if I’m being completely honest) to open it up to the world.”
The beta included just two multiplayer modes, Walker Assault and Drop Zone, and a Tatooine mission. EA recently announced 3 more modes joining the multiplayer lineup, bringing the total number of known multiplayer modes up to eight.
