Star Wars Battlefront Beta (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

The Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.

Everyone on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC will have access to the open beta.

As part of the Star Wars Battlefront Beta we are also happy to reveal the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta at www.StarWarsBattlefront.com, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience features the strategic card game Base Command, and lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in Star Wars Battlefront. In addition to Base Command, the Companion also lets Rebels and Imperials alike check game stats and progression, customize load-outs and appearance, connect with friends, and get notified when they’re playing Star Wars Battlefront – as well as gather intel on their stats and progression so you can see how you match up! The Star Wars Battlefront Companion will be available on web and in the Apple App Store and Google Play store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on November 17.

Note that you will need an Internet connection to participate in the beta. Gameplay progress, achievements, characters, and character data achieved in the beta will not transfer to the Star Wars Battlefront main game. Not that this is pre-release software and may contain errors and defects, so play at your own risk, EA warned.


Developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts, Star Wars Battlefront will be available on November 17, 2015 in North America, November 18, 2015 in Europe and November 19, 2015 in Australasia. The Star Wars Battlefront Beta will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and on PC via Origin players between October 8 and October 12.
