Coming in October fans will be able to play the Battlefront 2 beta, and some new details about the beta test have emerged. The beta testing starts on October 6th, but if you pre-order the game you can start playing on October 4th. That’s right, pre-order and you can start playing that Wednesday. So what can you expect in the beta test?
Battlefront 2 Beta
- Galactic Assault Mode
- Starfighter Mode
- Player Classes – Assault, Heavy, Officers, Specialists
- Various Weapons
First of all, you will get to play two different game modes. The first game mode being Galactic Assault, and the second being Starfighter Assault. If you played the alpha, then you should be familiar with Galactic Assault. That is a larger multi-stage game mode where you have to make your way to the end by completing various objectives along the way. This game mode spans all three trilogies, so they might let us play a new Galactic Assault.
In the alpha, we played the Fall of Theed. This is where Droid forces attacked the capital city of Naboo, which eventually fell despite the efforts of the security forces. So if I were to guess, we might get a new Galactic Assault mode in the beta. The question is, which one?
The next game mode is Starfighter. While I don’t know much about this game mode, I would have to guess that it’s similar to Fighter Squadron in Battlefront 1. If that’s the case, then it might be a game mode where we simply battle each other in the air. There would be a couple different vehicles to choose from, then we take the skies!
Finally, just like the alpha, we will have access to player classes, various weapons, and some heroes. Maybe we will get new heroes since Rey and Darth Maul were in the alpha, but you never know. Regardless, I cannot wait to play the beta. This feels like a whole new game, and I’m super excited for its release.
