Default Battlefront BETA

Anyone else playing? I want to see a full list of the modes. But I might go ahead to pre order. It plays amazingly well. It's just simply super fun. My biggest concern is the lack of single player modes. What that means is that the mode I liked the best, Galactic Conquest, will not make it. I wonder if they might have some twist on it in the works that might come out later.

Mediocre. Good visuals, very little substance.

It sure is fun. Wish there was more depth. I still preordered though because I have friends that will play it too with me.

Do you guys know what a beta is? the game is not really supposed to have depth or substance yet.

I'm talking about the gameplay. Which is meh and has nothing to it really. Feels like a COD-lite.

Yes we know it's a beta. There will be no campaign so there goes some substance. Also we can see the map chooses and modes plus unlocks already.

The game does feel like cod. Which is bad.

What are you guys talking about? The game feels nothing like CoD. Of course it's going to bare it's a beta. I'm sure the full game will have more weapons, items, etc.

My one big complaint so far is that the hero isn't that fun to play. I'd almost rather just remain a regular soldier. Maybe blaster based heroes will be better in this game.

Game comes out in five weeks. Probably goes gold at worst in a month. There's not gonna be a lot of changes. This is mostly a stress test.

With that said. It's just an okay game. Nothing good, nothing bad gameplay wise. Amazing audio really great video, everything else is meh.

It feels like the heroes are just weird. Luke's jumping is fun, and Darth's force powers are good, but neither is as enjoyable as they should be. Hoping the other heroes work out well.

Why would you have a beta so close to release?

Quite a bit of fun and runs flawlessly for beta. Visuals are very good and gameplay is smooth. "Arcadey" but makes sense for a joint console release. Two modes two maps only up to level five so you can't really make too many judgements beyond that. I would like to see flight sticks working on PC, but it's simple enough with a mouse.

Enjoying it a lot. Moved away from FPS/3PS games a while back as I just wasn't enjoying games like CoD anymore, but I think I'll really sink my teeth into this one. Big Star Wars as it is.

Played the beta for around 5 hours, must say, I will buy this game as well. It is great.

Agreed. Can't wait to play the other game modes and unlock all the cards!

they've already had closed betas and then an online game usually has open betas like this one to stress test.
