Star Wars: Battlefront 2's Beta details leak online

Prepare yourself.

With Star Wars: Battlefront 2's Beta due to start in less than a month, a leak was sure to be expected. Lo and behold, Redditor Some_Info has come through with just that. After leaking the details of the EA Play showcase, as well as the date of the Alpha, Some_Info has returned with a breakdown of what to expect from October's Beta.

The rundown is as follows:

  • Maps: Galactic Assault on Theed (40 players), Space Battles on Fondor (24 players), Strike on Takodana plus. 1.1 Your beloved Skirmish that will be called Arcade or something like that. Will contain Solo, Split, and CO-OP - up to two players.

  • Heroes: Same ones from EA Play

  • Platforms: PC, Xbox 1, PS4

  • LAAT - should be the surprise vehicle you may see (it will go round and round like the U-Wing from Scariff)

  • Size: 14-16 GB

  • 5-9 emotes for soldiers (not sure if heroes will have emotes in beta)

  • You will earn credit and collect cards for the troopers but the credit will be lost at the end of the beta.

  • Graphic - a little improvement over E3.

Basically, the Beta is a compilation of the gameplay we have seen from both E3 and Gamescom 2017, which works out for the best anyway so as to keep the rest of the game fresh on release. As to be expected, any progress you make in the Beta will be wiped at its conclusion, so just enjoy it for what it is.

This will also be the final major test for the new yet controversial crates and Star Card unlock system. Battlefront 2 is expected to have microtransactions in letting players purchase crates for faster unlocks, though their long-term effect on the game and its following are yet to be determined.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 releases on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 17th, 2017.
