“Good news, friends!” EA has announced that in about a month a Star Wars Battlefront Beta will be incoming.

“Coming early October” EA writes on their blog, a “technical test” will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on Origin for PC. This technical test is, of course, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta. The Beta will allow players access to three unique game modes.

The first mentioned mode is the “Walker Assault on Hoth”, which we saw a great deal of at E3. Here is that mode in action:

The second is the “Survival Mission on Tatooine”. You can dive into that mode either solo or co-op as “you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.” Think of it as a Horde style offering. Here’ s video of that mode in action from E3 as well:

There will be a version of Survival mode that takes place on Endor, Hoth and Sullust as well. Tatooine is the only one available in the Beta though.

Finally, EA announced a new mode for the Star Wars Battlefront Beta: Drop Zone. Unfortunately, EA isn’t willing to discuss exactly what Drop Zone is at this point. Star Wars Battlefront releases on November 17th, making early October perfecting timing to whet our appetites.
