Take a look at this week's Star Wars Battlefront II beta


Dibs on Maul

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta is nearly here and based on how well the beta for the last game went, it should be huge. We recapped the modes and maps last week, but now we’ve got a concise video to match those words.

I’m glad DICE is including a split-screen option not just in the full game proper, which isn’t always a given for shooters, but also here, in the beta. We’ll be able to attack and defend a Star Destroyer, battle around Maz’s castle, and fight on Naboo. The beta kicks off October 4 for early-access players (read: folks who pre-ordered before Oct. 1) and it’ll open up for everyone on October 6.
