Game Modes Available in Beta

Four distinct modes will be available to play during the beta, taking you through all three cinematic eras of Star Wars. They are:

Galactic Assault on Naboo

20v20 multi-stage mode. In the Beta, you’ll be sampling the Naboo: Theed map, playing as a Clone trooper or Separatist droid in a desperate battle for control of the royal palace. You’ll earn Battle Points as you defeat foes and redeem them to summon vehicles, upgrade to reinforcements like the B2 Super Battle Droid, and become a hero like Rey… or a villain like Darth Maul.

Starfighter Assault on Fondor

You’ll join squadrons of teammates in a battle to defend an Imperial Star Destroyer in the space over Fondor… or destroy it You’ll get your first chance to try out Star Wars Battlefront II’s three new starfighter classes and pilot Hero Ships from the Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, and the New Trilogy.

Strike on Takodana

You’ll also get your hands on Strike mode in the new Takodana map, where the Resistance and First Order battle around Maz Kanata’s castle. Strike is a class-based mode – no heroes allowed. Instead, players rely the unique skills of the Assault, Heavy, Specialist, and Officer, utilizing teamwork to seize objectives.

Arcade on Naboo

Finally, you’ll get a chance to sample Arcade Mode on Naboo, where one or two players take on groups of AI opponents.  You’ll be able to try out two Arcade options: a team battle with AI allies and enemies, and a one-vs. many scenario pitting the player against a tide of foes. There’s even couch co-op for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
