With a new Star Wars movie on the horizon there's no doubt that this holiday season everything Star Wars is going to be big -- and Star Wars Battlefront looks to be coming out at the right time. With the beta recently wrapping up, and drawing over 9 million players, you can be sure that it's going to be a hit. Also, 9 million! That's one hell of a stress test.
Considering the number of players taking part, it's pretty impressive that outside of some minor incidents, there were very little load issues. In fact the beta was a huge success, with a number of people being able to hop in and out of games at will.
We could not be happier that so many of you wanted to come in to get a small taste of what our passionate team has been working on. Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront back in April, we knew the beta would be a huge test for our game. After all, the beta has been one of the most talked about topics around the game over the last six months, and it was exciting (and a little nerve racking if I’m being completely honest) to open it up to the world.
And like Han Solo at the end of A New Hope, we’re glad you showed up. Even more importantly than just showing up, you’ve been spending a lot of time playing, having a great time and leaving us some invaluable feedback, as we continue to tune and balance the game until launch.
And to wrap things up EA and DICE have outlined (only in minor detail) each of the mission types
and multiplayer modes
on offer. So now all the greyed out parts of the menu make a little more sense.
