Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be coming to PC and consoles this November 17th, bringing with it far more content than its predecessor. There will be a lot more maps to explore and demolish, an equally large variety of weapons and vehicles spread across the various Star Wars time periods, a space-based combat mode with its own ships and gameplay systems, and naturally, a whole new batch of heroes and villains to toy around with.

If you would like to give all of this content a try, without spending €60 for the honor, you'll be glad to hear that the Open Beta is set to begin later this week. Those of you that have pre-ordered Battlefront 2 will be able to get in on October 4th, while everyone else will be able to hop in on October 6th. The Open Beta will last until October 9th, so you should have plenty of time to see what Battlefront 2 is all about, and more importantly, whether its worth your time and money.

In terms of content the most interesting part of the Open Beta will be the battle of Naboo, first highlighted during EA's E3 conference back in June. There will also be a couple of side-modes to sink your teeth into, modes such as Starfighter Assault on the planet Fondor, as well as a small-scale skirmish in Maz Kanata's castle on Takodana. Long story short, the Open Beta will give you a good glimpse at pretty much every aspect of Battlefront 2 besides the singleplayer story.

To learn more, or just grab yourself a beta key as soon as it becomes available, you should head over to the official website. And finally, allow me to leave you with the most recent Open Beta trailer. Enjoy!
