Electronic Arts announced today on the Star Wars Battlefront blog that the servers for the beta would be so vast that it will be for everyone that signs up for it.

Matthew Everett, Battlefront community manager, confirmed that once the beta was open it would remain open. He said that the beta “will consist of both our offline and online modes, including co-op and split-screen co-op, and it will take place on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC”

Not only will the beta be connecting as many as 40 players together in gigantic multiplayer battles, the beta will serve as a demo for an offline co-op mission mode called Survival. This will be horde-style mission that puts players on Tatooine and throws various waves and waves waves of Imperial AI troopers in front of them. These troopers will actually be able to hit you, make no mistake, so take them down first.

Everret was also nice enough to spend time answering some questions that the fans had:

Q) Will there be any AI bots in multiplayer in addition to other players?

A) Yes! Our Fighter Squadron mode features AI units (10 on each side).

Q) Will there be sidearms or only primary guns?

A) We offer a primary blaster along with a hand of Star Cards. How you customize your Star Card hand will be up to you.

Q) What comes with the various editions, i.e. Deluxe vs. Standard?

A) The Standard Edition of Star Wars Battlefront will include the base game. The Deluxe Edition will include the base game and have the Ion Grenade, Ion Torpedo, and DL-44 unlocked right away along with the exclusive Ion Shock and Victory emotes.

Q) Can I buy the Deluxe Edition on disk in a retail store, or is it just digitally online?

A) The Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition is available as a physical item for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only.

Q) Can I upgrade my vehicles in Star Wars Battlefront?

A) Vehicles in Star Wars Battlefront come with their own weapons and abilities that make them authentic to the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars Battlefront beta’s date hasn’t been announced yet but with a November 17th release, hopefully it is soon. Stay Tuned here at Gamer Assault Weekly for all your gaming needs and May the Force be with You!
