Mathew Everett Community Manager on the Star Wars Battlefront development team has announced over on the PlayStation blog that the PS4 beta will be starting in early October.
The October PlayStation 4 Star Wars Battlefront Beta will be a technical test and feature Walker Assault on Hoth and allows gamers to play both Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker
The Walker Assault on Hoth takes the form a 40 player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire battling it out. Gamers will also be able to enjoy a Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces. Everett explains more :
In addition to those two modes, we are excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. We’ll be sharing more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead.
As part of the Star Wars Battlefront Beta we are also happy to reveal the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta on the official site, 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 loadouts 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, the Apple App Store and Google Play store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on November 17th.
Watch the latest trailer for the new Star Wars Battlefront game that will be launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 17th.
