The details for the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta have been leaked. In a post on Reddit, an extensive leak has revealed the game modes and heroes that’ll be available, as well as some extra details about the game.
Battlefront 2's StarFighter Assault mode is the best kind of fan service.
Most of the new information concerns what maps and game modes will be available when the beta is released. Currently, there seem to be four available game modes: Galactic Assault on Theed, a Clone Wars-era battle for the capital city of Naboo; Space Battle on Fondor, an Empire-era battle; Strike on Takodana, which featured in The Force Awakens; and Skirmish mode, which makes its return after featuring in Star Wars Battlefront. That means all three eras will feature in the beta, and you’ll also be able to play in co-op mode.
You’ll also get the same four heroes that appeared at E3, which means Rey, Han Solo, Darth Maul, and Boba Fett will all be playable. A new feature coming to the beta will be the introduction of the LAAT vehicle, which will apparently circle its map (probably Theed) much like the U-wing did on Scariff in the first game.
The leak also goes into the beta’s logistics. It reveals that you’ll be able to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and that the download will be somewhere between 14-16 GB. There’ll also be a slight graphical improvement over what we saw at E3. Any credits or other collectibles you earn won’t carry over from the beta to the main game.
The Star Wars: Battlefront 2 beta takes place October 6-9, but pre-order players get access on October 4.
