'Star Wars: Battlefront' beta will be open to everyone, work offline


It seems like every time we see Star Wars Battlefront, it gets a little more exciting. Small, but epic missions. Huge multiplayer battles. Aerial combat with up to 20 players. Can this game possibly live up to its own hype? You're going to find out. Yes, you personally -- EA has announced that the Star Wars Battlefront beta is going to be open to everyone.

It's more than just a simple multiplayer beta, though:this preview has a little bit of everything. Competitive players will be able to try out the Walker Assault and Drop Zone game modes (staged on the Hoth and Sullust maps, respectively). Players looking for a more solitary experience will have access to a Survival Mission mode, compatible with offline solo play and local and online co-op. Not bad! Unfortunately, EA still isn't sure when you'll be able to download the beta -- just that it'll be available to all Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 owners later this year.
