Star Wars Battlefront News Roundup.

Star-Wars-Battlefront-3-Beta-Darth-Vader-Luke-Skywalker-HothWith the Star Wars Battlefront beta arriving tomorrow, now would be as good a time as any to cover some details about the game that we’ve not discussed. Peek inside to see what dreaded financial feature will be completely absent from the game, what console will get the game a few days early for download, and more.

Firstly, let’s start off with some gameplay footage of the highly-anticipated beta to DICE’s game:





The gameplay is looking pretty solid at this point – a great sign for what’s to come when the full game comes out in a little over a month. But aside from gameplay, there are also a few things related to the game’s technical aspects that are worth discussing. Let’s start off with what will undoubtedly be a huge relief to the wallets of players everywhere: the game will not have microtransactions, meaning that players won’t have to pay for dozens of deceptively-inexpensive costs to gain temporary advantages over other players. The game will have two different currencies in-game – points and credits – but both have to be earned as opposed to bought. It appears as though EA will look instead to creating DLC packs to gain additional revenue from the game instead, although the first DLC pack – Battle Of Jakku – will be completely free for all players.


EA AccessNext up is something that should come to please Xbox One owners – those who are invested in the EA Access program will be able to play the game five days earlier than everyone else… for six hours, anyway. Bear in mind that this includes idle time, so if you leave the game paused, then you’re burning money – so make the time count! Furthermore, DICE was also able to confirm that while the game will not have a server browser, it will have dedicated multiplayer servers across all platforms.


Finally, here are the PC specifications for the game:

Sound a bit intimidating for those of you with older computers? Don’t get too worried – a writer for PC Gamer noted that the game’s beta worked fine on his 4-year-old work computer, so it doesn’t seem like you’ll need a super-up-to-date computer to play the game.
