Star Wars Battlefront II looked tremendously amazing at EA Play this year. We get to see Clone Troopers and Separatists forces back in action and the assault on Theed gameplay was just remarkable. The DICE Star Wars game will launch later year and that’s a month before Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit the theaters.
EA announced that they will have a beta coming in the second half of 2017. Although the closed alpha already started exclusively on PC, other platforms will get their hands on Star Wars Battlefront II this October when the open beta goes live.
In the latest PlayStation blog post, EA Community Manager, Jarred Petty, posted more information about what we get to experience in the open beta.
*As posted from the PlayStation Blog by Jarred Petty:
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.
Multiplayer Starfighter Assault
We’re not sharing all the details around this yet, but 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. You’ll be learning much more about starfighters in Star Wars Battlefront II at gamescom.
