Feeling the ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping down on the frozen tundra of Hoth. Rebel forces firing blasters as Imperial speeder bikes zip through the lush forests of Endor. Intense dogfights between squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters filling the skies. Immerse yourself in the epic Star Wars battles you've always dreamed of and create new heroic moments of your own in Star Wars Battlefront.
Star Wars fans likely have two dates memorized: November 17, the launch of Star Wars Battlefront, and December 18, the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. The countdown to both launches is made a little less painful today with the launch of the Star Wars Battlefront beta on PlayStation 4 and PC. We took a brief look at the two modes players can test out at this early time, and walked away mighty impressed by the classic trilogy vibe, and flow of combat.
We kick off our look with an 8 vs. 8 match on the planet Sullust. Tim Turi and I pass the controller on every death, and end up doing fairly well in this match. The next match we dive into is Walker Assault, Star Wars Battlefront's large 40-player mode with vehicle integration. We suit up as the Rebels and show off many of Battlefront's unique features, all while dying over and over again. Darth Vader even makes an unexpected appearance at one of our spawn points.

Battlefront is undeniably gorgeous. Whether you're running through the snowy trenches of Hoth or exploring the rocky canyons of Sullust, the details and lighting effects are among the most impressive I've witnessed on consoles.
Prior to jumping into the beta, I had my concerns about the experience DICE would deliver, but the gunplay and character navigation feel updated and smooth, whether you're using the first- or third-person views through the three modes in the beta.
