Star Wars: Battlefront II Beta Opens This Week

GOG has worked with Disney to relaunch 2005's Star Wars Battlefront II's multiplayer component for Steam and GOG. "Powered by GOG Galaxy, the multiplayer function of the game has now been restored AND with added Crossplay support between GOG Galaxy and Steam".

Players will be able to take the battle to Naboo, home of Queen Amidala and the battlegrounds for the finale in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, in a 20 v 20 assault. The tendency to reboot videogame series' at a rapid pace means you sometimes get these situations where games have exactly the same name.

The Beta will provide a small taste of Arcade on the Theed map, but the full version will have you test your wits and reflexes in all three eras of Star Wars.

Classic Battlefront II multiplayer functionality was lost when the GameSpy multiplayer service shutdown.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta is free for all on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

EA Dice has released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming shooter game Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

This is all conveniently ahead of the other Star Wars Battlefront II's beta that begins later this week.

Do you like your Star Wars with a shinier coat of paint? You also have the ability to play as heroes such as Yoda and Darth Vader.

The Messenger is just one of many story connections to the broader Star Wars galaxy revealed in the new single-player campaign.

Fans are encouraged to play the beta this week, and good news for those who pre-ordered the title: they're getting early access starting on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Players can also equip both characters with epic ability upgrades in multiplayer.
