With the launch of the Star Wars Battlefront open beta across PC, PS4, and Xbox One, we want to know what you think of the upcoming first-person shooter from EA and DICE.
Without question, the final months of 2015 are going to be absolutely dominated by Star Wars, with theaters in December set to be overrun with moviegoers of all kinds, eager to see the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, Star Wars fever is extending beyond the big screen, with a plethora of action figures, comic books, novels, television shows, and more all working to take advantage of the Star Wars hype, including the upcoming first-person shooter from Electronic Arts and DICE, Star Wars Battlefront.
Star Wars Battlefront is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year, and the hype for it has been building ever since its exciting E3 2013 teaser trailer. The wait for the game since then has been rough, but fans don’t have to wait until the game’s November release to get their hands on it, thanks to the game’s open beta.
The open beta for Star Wars Battlefront launched yesterday across multiple platforms, giving players a chance to test out some of the game’s components before its official release in November. This has included the new Drop Zone multiplayer mode as well as the game’s split-screen missions, allowing players to dabble in a relatively wide range of the activities Star Wars Battlefront is bringing to the table.
The Star Wars Battlefront beta also allows players to utilize the special “Hero” and “Villain” character types in battle. Speculation has been running rampant as to which iconic characters from the films will be making their way into the final game, but the beta only allows players to use Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. We know that Boba Fett is also confirmed, and data mining revealed that Han Solo is in the game as well, but in the meantime, how you are enjoying playing as Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker?
We’d also like to know your thoughts on other aspects of the Star Wars Battlefront beta as well, now that everyone has had a chance to thoroughly play it. Is the Star Wars Battlefront beta living up to the hype? Are you missing the space battles from previous installments? How do you think Star Wars Battlefront can be improved? Let us know your comprehensive thoughts on Star Wars Battlefront and the beta.
Star Wars Battlefront will have its official release on November 17th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The open beta is currently available across all three aforementioned platforms.
