"Coming early October to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire," EA announced this week in an official statement. "Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star WarsTM universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces. In addition to those two modes, we are excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. We'll be sharing more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead."

Along with this beta announcement, EA announced a "strategic card game" serving as a companion to Battlefront, entitled Base Camp. This new gaming feature will allow players to earn points to unlock more in Battlefront, according to Gamma Squad.
