The Star Wars Battlefront II beta is live

While the first game may have been a swing and a miss in many areas, Star Wars: Battlefront II appears to be shaping up nicely. DICE is looking to show these improvements off too, with the open beta for Battlefront II now live across the PC, Xbox One and PS4. You can check out the content available and system requirements too.

Here is what you can get your hands on in the beta:

For the Galactic Assault 40-player mode, you will be able to see the map ‘Theed’. We will get a chance to try out the 24-player Space Battle game mode on the map ‘Fondor’. Finally, we will also get to play through Strike on Takodana. The same hero characters shown at EA Play this year will also be playable, including Darth Maul, Rey, Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett.

As for system requirements, here is the minimum spec to get the game running:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350.
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i5 6600K.
  • Memory: 8GB RAM.
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB.
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB.
  • Hard-drive space: 15GB.

And here is the recommended spec:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later.
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX 8350 Wraith.
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 6700 or equivalent.
  • Memory: 16GB RAM.
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB.
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB.
  • Hard-drive space: 15GB.

KitGuru Says: Despite some concerns about microtransactions, I am looking forward to Battlefront II this year. Even if the multiplayer doesn’t end up being for me, I do have high hopes for the campaign at least. Are any of you looking forward to this year’s Battlefront sequel? Will you be trying out the beta?
