Pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II and Play the Beta Starting October 4

Dust off your blaster rifle and polish your clone trooper armor for the Star Wars Battlefront II beta starting October 4 on Xbox One. Earlier this week, EA announced specific details about the upcoming beta and when players who have pre-ordered the highly anticipated Star Wars game will have an exclusive opportunity to jump into the fray.

For this beta, the royal palace in the city of Theed — located on the planet of Naboo for the keen Star Wars observer — will be your battleground in the Galactic Assault mode as either the Republic clone troopers or Separatist droid army. You can also take the stars in the new Starfighter Assault game mode as you strap in and fly some of the most iconic ships in the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars Battlefront II is the next entry in the classic series that puts you on the ground or in space in the Star Wars universe in epic online multiplayer battles. In addition to a fully-fledged single-player cinematic campaign, Star Wars Battlefront II will be one of the biggest games of the year for Xbox One.

The beta will run until October 9, but to give yourself the most playing time you can pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II on Xbox One today to ensure you can start playing in the beta on October 4.

Star Wars Battlefront II will come to the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, on November 17. Plus, with EA Access exclusively on Xbox, you will be able to experience the action even earlier with the Play First Trial on November 9. For more details on Star Wars Battlefront II and Xbox One X, keep it tuned to Xbox Wire.
