As previously announced, it will be open to all Origin PC players as well as PS4 and Xbox One users.

It will run from October 8-12 and is a technical test containing three modes across three planets:

Walker Assault on Hoth: Fight in 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-wing bombers. Or, side with the Empire and protect your walkers while utilizing their mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel objective.

Drop Zone on Sullust: Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8v8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.

Survival Mission on Tatooine: Play alone or with a friend via co-op or split-screen as you battle to hold off waves of Imperial forces including AT-ST’s, TIE fighters, elite stormtroopers and more.

The Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience will also be available during the beta only through the official website.

It features the strategic card game Base Command, and lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in the core game. In addition to Base Command, the Companion also lets players check out game stats and progression, customize load-outs and appearance, connect with friends, and more.

Star Wars Battlefront releases on November 17.
