The Star Wars: Battlefront II beta is set to start on October 6th (or the 4th if the game is pre-ordered), and new details have now been announced regarding the actual content of the beta. Here is what you can expect:

Galactic Assault on Naboo

  • Specialists lay traps and snipe from a distance.

A Multiplayer Starfighter Assault will also be included, but they are not saying anything more about it for now.
