Star Wars: Battlefront Won’t Have A Server Browser, Open Beta Begins In Early October

Star Wars fans, we’ve got some good and some bad news for you today. Let’s start with the bad ones. The official Twitter account of Star Wars: Battlefront has just revealed that the game won’t feature any server browser. Instead, Star Wars: Battlefront will utilize a new skill based matchmaking system.


And now for the good news. The Open Beta phase of Star Wars: Battlefront will begin this October. Yeap, you read that right. This beta will be open to everyone, meaning you won’t have to pre-order the game in order to gain access to it.

As EA and DICE stated:

“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. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars 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. “
