A few more days and the much-awaited Star Wars Battlefront Beta is set to happen. However, contrary to what we have previously reported, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta will not be available to be played offline as confirmed by Mat Everett, Battlefront’s community manager, on Reddit.
“Offline game play will not be available within the beta. Details can be found in my community blog here,” Everett said along with a link to his Community Update #4 posted last September 16th in the official Star Wars Battlefront website.
He added, “For the Beta, an internet connection is required to play Missions. However, when Star Wars Battlefront ships on November 17 you will be able to play Missions offline.”
Set to start on October 8th and end on October 12th, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta is open to everyone. The beta will not require players to register, and is available to be pre-loaded as early as October 7th at 1am PT/10am CET. The Beta’s download size is expected to be at 7GB for the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, and 11GB for the PC via Origin.
The Star Wars Battlefront Beta features three game modes (Walker Assault on Hoth, Survival Mission on Tatooine, and Drop Zone on Sullust) set in different maps within the Star Wars universe.
A few days more, people! We’ll see you in the Beta soon!
