Star Wars: Battlefront's multiplayer beta launches early next month

One of the most exciting things about Star Wars: Battlefront is its multiplayer mode, which features massive space battles where you can pilot iconic ships like the Millennium Falcon. And you'll be able to experience the madness for yourself before the game launches in November: a multiplayer beta for the game is coming to PS4, PC, and Xbox One in early October.

Unfortunately there's no specific date for when it will launch, but EA has told VentureBeat that the beta will be open to all comers on every platform the game is coming to. It will also include two missions: the 40-player "Walker Assault on Hoth" battle, which includes Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader as playable characters; and "Survival Mission on Tatooine," where two rebels try to fight their way through waves of imperial forces. There's also a new mode called "Drop Zone," but no details on what it might entail.

We don't know much else about the beta, though EA promises more details "in the weeks ahead." The full Battlefront experience will be available on November 17th.

Update September 1st 8:00PM ET: We've updated the article to note that the beta will be open to everyone.
