      Battlefront Open Beta

      timthumb.jpg

      Hey guys, with just four days until the Battlefront beta, I thought I'd write a post to bring you up to speed.

      The Beta will be available starting this Thursday (8th Oct), all you need to play the Beta is the Origin game client, no sign up or registration is needed, its an open Beta.

      I have been luck enough to try the game on two separate occasions now, and each time I left with a grin on my face, because it's been a long time since I played a shooter game that was as refreshing and new to me as Battlefront. From flying the Y-Wings and bringing down an AT-AT to jet packing onto a hill top and spraying down the enemies taking cover underneath a AT-ST, quickly plummeting into the snow after being destroyed by a friendly T-47 which flew by over head. I loved the movies and have only read one of the star wars books when I was little, but neither compare to the experience and enjoyment of playing the new Battlefront.

      The game is mechanically unique, it's Asymmetrical game play was engaging and felt balanced despite the obvious disadvantage the defending team faced, as we didn't have the luxury of any ground vehicles. The gun play is fun and engaging, and with Star Wars laser Rifles comes no need to reload, so there is a constant barrage of lasers coming from both side of the map, contrasting against the white snow to create a living environment that is immersive and engaging.

      I'm extremely excited for the beta this Thursday and am looking forward to playing some games in a squad with you guys.

      May the force be with you.



      Here are some videos of the beta by JackFrags:

      The lack of a server browser seriously turns me off the game, despite it being a game in the Battlefront series, let alone a game based on Star Wars. I'm going to play the beta and will probably make my decision on buying the game from that, though I might just pick it up anyway for shits and giggles. The survival mode should be fun regardless

      Jack Frags just uploaded a series of videos he recorded at a Battlefront event, looks like the embargo just got lifted as they were all uploaded at once, so some other content creators should be uploading similar videos soon I imagine. Survival looks banging!
