Star Wars Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta Coming In October

The beta for upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II will begin on October 4th for those who preordered, with public access beginning for everyone else on October 6th and will run until October 9th. Over on the official EA Star Wars Blog, we learned that those who participate will gain bonus content including items like Yoda’s Epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card.

What’s in the multiplayer beta? You’ll be able to experience some of the best of Star Wars Battlefront II across iconic planets and into the far reaches of space. Get set to dive into Naboo: Theed in Galactic Assault. Join Republic clone troopers and Separatist battle droids in a wild melee on the streets surrounding the royal palace, where you’ll take control of some of your favorite heroes.

But that’s only part of the story. Also included is a multiplayer Starfighter Assault battle (with more details to be revealed at Gamescom), giving you the ability to pilot a variety of the most memorable starfighters from Star Wars. Keep your eyes open for even more surprises as the beta approaches.
