EA announced Thursday that the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront reboot will host an open beta between October 8th and 12th. Players will reportedly have access to three gameplay modes. There's a 40-person war on Hoth wherein the opposing forces attempt to destroy (or defend) a fleet of AT-AT's. Players can also compete in an 8 vs 8 capture-the-flag-style match called dropzone where they fight for control of escape pods. Finally, there's a solo/co-op survival mode where players must fend off continual waves of enemy troops for as long as possible. The full version of the game hits store shelves on November 17th.
