You can play the Star Wars: Battlefront beta today

The lucky few that got access to an early version of Star Wars: Battlefront were allowed to battle across the surface of Hoth, Sullust, and Tatooine before the rest of the world. But you don't need to let that anger at those chosen turn into hate (hate leads to the dark side) — as of 1PM ET today, the Battlefront beta will be open to all on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Battlefront community manager Sledgehammer70 confirmed the news on Twitter last night. The beta includes three game modes — a small-scale solo survival mission on Luke Skywalker's adopted home planet Tatooine, a medium-sized skirmish on the volcanic world of Sullust, and a video game version of the climactic showdown between the Empire and the Rebels on the ice planet of Hoth. The latter mode in particular captures the drama and bombast of Star Wars, featuring vast, controllable AT-AT walkers, iconic snowspeeders, and power-ups that enable movie-esque explosions. To download and install the beta, console players will need 8GB free on their Xbox One or PS4, while PC gamers will need 11GB.
