EA Reveals Star Wars Battlefront II Beta and Pre-Order Details


The above picture was revealed on the Star Wars Show via YouTube. In 2015, we were all kinds of excited for Battlefront, but it under-delivered on so many levels.

It's not officially part of E3, but with all the major Star Wars titles, a new Need for Speed and the ongoing Battlefield and Federation Internationale de Football Association franchises, EA should kick the week off nicely. We're hopeful that they will. And today, EA and DICE explained how it will work. In order to bring the gameplay to life, the developer and publisher have hired on the help of YouTubers and Twitch streamers such as JackFrags, Darkness429, StoneMountain64, and Neebs Gaming to go hands-on in two teams of 20 for a live stream during EA Play. It may also mean that we won't get content as regularly as the DLC packs that came out for the first game. What is more, if you pre-order the game, or have already pre-ordered the title, you'll have early access to the multiplayer beta.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated to release on November 17, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Plus, there plenty of other goodies in store.

Lastly, anyone who pre-orders the Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will receive additional bonuses in the form of three-day early access to the game as well as upgraded versions of all four trooper classes. Instant access to six hero and starfighter epic Star Cards: Kylo Ren: Power Reach and Solid Freeze, Rey: Far Sight and Deep Mind, and Starfighters: Enhanced Auxiliary Power and First Order ship upgrade. These are special abilities for certain characters. EA released a reveal trailer for the game back in April, if you missed that video you can watch it below.
