EA and DICE have announced that the Star Wars: Battlefront open beta will be starting on 8th October and will run for a few, short but oh-so sweet days on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The short period will serve as a technical test for the game ahead of its launch in November. Offering Walker Assault on Hoth, Survival Mission on Tatooine and Drop Zone on Sullust, the open beta will give you more than ample opportunity to get stuck in to some of Star Wars: Battlefront's numerous multiplayer modes, with a download size of around 7GB on consoles. The Star Wars: Battlefront open beta will be whisking you away to a galaxy far, far away on the 8th of October and will run until the 12th of October, ending at various times depending on platform and region. You'll find it on the Xbox Games Store for download when the time comes. Star Wars: Battlefront launches on 17th November 2015.
