After a free beta period that saw thousands of people get their hands on Star Wars Battlefront as well as millions of people viewing the streams online Electronic Arts took to Twitter earlier to announce that the beta period will be extended.
The announcement was “Hope you’re enjoying the Star Wars Battlefront beta and thank you for playing – every time you log on, it’s helping us ensure the experience is going to be great at launch. As we get into the late stages of the beta, we will begin conducting further technical tests on our infrastructure.
These additional tests will start on Monday, October 12 and will run through Tuesday, October 13th, which will add an additional day to the open Beta. These tests are to help us find some extreme scenarios, and that means some players may experience occasional issues such as being kicked from the game or losing connectivity. This is all being done in the name of shoring up our infrastructure before we launch on November 17th.
Please continue to provide your feedback around the Beta and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefront in November.”
The extension is only another day but that’s plenty of time for everybody who hasn’t yet managed to get involved with it to do so.
So far the game seems to be surpassing everbody’s expectations and players seem to be thoroughly enjoying it. Have you had chance to give it a go yet? Been watching the streams? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!
