My colleague Marco had hands-on time with EA DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 at E3 2017 last month (view 15 minutes of gameplay at the bottom of this article) and came away with the conclusion that it “feels like the Star Wars game we should have had".

For the rest of us, we can’t be more excited to finally play the game and now, the developer has revealed the open beta start date as well as what players will be able to experience.

  • Pre-order early access – 4 to 9 October 2017
  • Open beta – 6 to 9 October 2017

At the time of writing, no specific times have been revealed, but it is important to note that the developed did state the beta will run “through October 9”. The beta doesn’t leave any platform out in the cold, as it will be available for PC (on Origin), PS4 and Xbox One.  

Those who do pre-order will also get bonus content which includes “Yoda's Epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card” which is available until the end of the beta on 9 October or “while supplies last”. Below, you can find out what is in the beta coming in October.

Galactic Assault on Naboo

  • “Join the Separatist droid army or the Republic Clones on the streets of Theed in massive 40 player multiplayer melees
  • Choose from four distinct trooper classes:
  • Assault troopers are classic flankers, pushing the line forward and advancing the front
  • Heavy troopers use their high-powered weapons and personal body shields to take ground and hold it
  • Officers power up their teammates with buffs and deploy remote weapons to support their allies
  • Specialists lay traps and snipe from a distance
  • Control beloved Star Wars heroes, pilot prequel-era vehicles, and more” - Source

Multiplayer Starfighter Assault

The developer isn’t ready to share any details about Starfighter Assault just yet, but we will be learning “much more” about the starfighters at Gamescom, which kicks off on 22 August 2017. However, there is a broad description on the PlayStation blog, explaining that: “we can tell you that you’ll be able to take part in an epic starfighter assault set during the original trilogy era, piloting an assortment of Star Wars’ greatest ships in an objective-based, multi-stage battle.”
