I hope i posted correctly, only my 2nd attempt...

You don't need to sign up, just download it.
don't need to sign up
worked on Xbox one. thx
Been living under a rock?? JK, good for notifying those who have missed the info.
Just played the horde mode Tatooine map. Lovely, lovely graphics and audio. I will give the hoth battle a go tomorrow. Well worth checking out.
Can't wait to try this out! Battlefront 2 was easily my favourite game on the original Xbox.
Yeah what's up with this sign up? Just download it mate, cold.
does this require PlayStation plus on ps4?
Don't need PS plus for the beta.

It hasn't progressed imho. Not saying whether thats a good or bad thing, but this is not the game I was expecting from the reveal trailers a few months back.
it's star wars and that's great, but it plays like a cod game, the multiplayer is craps unless you don't mind dieing every 30 seconds

Or maybe you aren't a great player?
Had a go on the multiplayer maps, I think the hoth one was more fun as it was more satisfying to destroy the vehicles.
Also saw a snowspeeder taking down the AT AT with a tow cable one of the times I played it, don't know if this was player controlled or NPC, but good to see it in the game

really want to buy this but the mad multiplayer and no single or co-op story modes are totally putting me off. looks nice though. bit too much like cod, which I'm not a fan of.
The video cut scene trailers look really good. Almost movie like. But then I saw gameplay footage and it's another FPS.

We've had over 20 years of FPS shooters now. I just wish some other original genre would come along.
Star wars FPS ticks the box for me. Heat added.

It would of been player controlled. Well done to that player who took one down. It's almost impossible to win that match defending.

Using the well-established Frostbite engine to put people inside the even-more-established Star Wars Universe, there's nothing groundbreaking here but it's going to be a huge money-maker!
There are plenty of original games still popping up in the indie world but the big publishers are going to stick with proven themes in proven markets as they yeild the best returns... Hollywood doesn't gamble - why would the games industry be any different?
According to the demo, the BETA ends today.
Flying is still dog poo like every other DICE game. Disappointing to say the least.

nope servers are being restarted, it will then run until the 13th
Had high hopes for this but after playing the beta I will not pre-order. I love Battlefield 3&4, CoD and Destiny PvP but Battlefront (Walker Assault) is just too chaotic. It's a great Star Wars experience for about half and hour then it just gets a bit tedious. Graphically it's VERY pretty but when you get over how lovely the rocks / snow looks, the gameplay is just all over the place. Melee = horrid. Flying = terrible. Spawning = shocking. I will likely wait for the dust to settle and get it for Christmas if the other game modes turn out to be well received. Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, death! Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, death! Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, death! Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, death!
I played it today for a good few hours, good fun with others, but a nightmare at the same time with lack of communication in teams, trying to take down the at-ats are impossible, my friend took down two in one round with the tow rope, and literally just lost because of it firing before it hit the floor... I will get it but not right away.
I really enjoyed it on my first go on Multiplayer.... the game mode where you have to capture the pod but didn't like the big AT-AT thingy mode. Was going to pre-order but with no single player campaign it isn't worth the amount it will be going for come release. Price will drop quickly especially as Black Ops 3 will be released around then and will want to get sales up for xmas.


Xbox beta runs at 720p aswell, where as PS4 900p. Should have downloaded it on my PS4 instead but oh well.

I feel the same about this. Had it on pre-order aswell, and after seeing the trailer, was eagerly awaiting playing it. 30 minutes of playing the beta, and have to say its a huge disappointment. Won't be buying this one.
Thanks for this I heard there was a Beta but also thought it was with a pre-order or something
