The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Open Beta Launches into Orbit This October

The open beta will include two big multiplayer modes.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 open beta launches in October, and today EA detailed what players can expect to play in the beta.

The open beta will drop on October 6 for the public, and October 4 for players who pre-ordered the game. In a PlayStation blog posted today, EA Community Manager Jared Petty explained that the beta will include two massive multiplayer modes: A Galactic Assault on Naboo and a Multiplayer Starfighter Assault.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Naboo Assault

The Galactic Assault on Naboo mode will be a massive 40 player multiplayer brawl where players can either play as a Separatist droid army or a Republic Clone. The mode will include four trooper classes including an Assault unit, Heavy troopers, Officers who power teammates with buffs and set up remote weapons, and a Specialist sniper class.

The mode also include prequel-era vehicles and of course, Star Wars Battlefront's hero system where players can unlock playable Star Wars characters to join the battlefield.

The open beta also includes a Multiplayer Starfighter Assault which EA refuses to detail just yet. It will, however, be an original trilogy era set, multi-part starfigther assault. Players will pilot one of the original trilogy fighters and partake in an objective-based, multi-stage mode. More details will be revealed at Gamescom in Germany.

So there you have it. If you've pre-ordered the game, you'll have access to the open beta two days before the public. The beta will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via EA Origins and the beta will remain open until October 9.
