Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta: 5 Things You Need to Know

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta: 5 Things You Need to Know is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 release date lands in November but you’ll be able to try the game out before that.

EA DICE has confirmed a Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The beta will help the developer stress test the game for problems and it will give gamers a chance to try a portion of the game before it arrives in the fall. Star Wars Battlefront 2 has three different release dates in November.

If you’re interested in Star Wars Battlefront 2 you’ll probably want to try the beta. It’ll help you get comfortable with the game mechanics, characters, and maps and it’ll help you decide on a pre-order.

Today we want to go over the most important things you need to know about the upcoming Battlefront 2 beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta Release Date

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta doesn’t have a specific release date but it does have a specific release window for all three platforms.

DICE recently confirmed plans to release the beta sometime this fall ahead of the game’s release in mid-November. The company didn’t announce any exclusives so we currently expect the Xbox One, PS4, and PC betas to start at the same time.

When to Expect the Battlefront 2 Beta

We don’t have any official start date but we can use the 2015 Star Wars Battlefront beta as a guide.

In 2015, DICE released its Star Wars Battlefront beta in October, just a few weeks before the official release date. Don’t be surprised if DICE uses the same protocol this year.

The 2015 beta initially stretched from October 8th to October 12th before the developer extended the beta for an additional day of testing.

How to Get Early Access to the Battlefront 2 Beta

There will be multiple Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta release dates and the earliest Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta date won’t be free.

Those who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront 2 (and those who have already pre-ordered) will be able to start playing the beta early. The developer hasn’t said how early.

Retailers are currently selling a few different versions of the game including the $60 standard edition and a more expensive Deluxe Edition.

Open Beta

You don’t have to pre-order Star Wars Battlefront 2 to participate in the beta.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta, like the beta in 2015, will eventually open up to anyone that wants to give it a go before the official release.

We expect the public beta to open up a few days after early access begins.

Multiplayer Beta

Don’t expect a single-player beta and don’t expect the beta to feature the entire multiplayer experience.

DICE’s announcement confirms a multiplayer beta. It doesn’t mention the single-player campaign and we’d be surprised if it was included in the release.

The developer hasn’t said what it will be testing in the beta but we expect features to be limited to just a few weapons, vehicles, characters, and game modes.

The 2015 Battlefront beta included the Walker Assault and Drop Zone modes in addition to Survival mission modes. This represented a fraction of the content found in the full version of the game.

4 Reasons to Pre-Order Star Wars Battlefront 2 & 6 Reasons to Wait

Pre-Order Battlefront 2 If You Want Early Access

If you want to play Star Wars Battlefront 2 before its official release date you'll want to put in a pre-order for the game.

There are three Star Wars Battlefront 2 release dates. One is November 17th. This is the game's global release date for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC and it's the release date you get with the standard version of the game

Another release date lands on November 14th. If you want to start playing the game three days before everyone else you'll need to pre-order the $80 Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition before the 14th. 

EA Access (Xbox One) and EA Origin (PC) subscribers who pre-order the game will get access to the game on November 9 with EA's Play First Trial.

If you want to get a head start ranking up your character, learning about the new weapons, new characters, new modes, and new maps, a pre-order is probably the route you'll want to take. 

Those who pre-order will also get early access to the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta which arrives sometime this fall.
