When Star Wars Battlefront launches later this year, players will be able to take advantage of both online and offline game modes. This includes online co-op as well as local co-op. Surprisingly, these features will also be available in the beta when it begins in Early October.
In a brand new community update, DICE has revealed that in addition to the standard multiplayer mode, both online and local co-op will also be available to try-out in the beta.
The beta is set to come this October for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and will include the 40-player Walker Assault on Hoth, and Drop Zone on Sullust. The Survival mission mode, set on Tatooine will also be available to play both solo, with a friend online, or local co-op, meaning you can play it offline too.
What’s more, Community Chief Mathew Everett confirmed that the beta is open to everyone, meaning all can download the beta as soon as it launches.
DICE also confirmed today that, in a similar fashion to Titanfall, the game will include AI enemies and allies on the Fighter Squadron mode, with each team having 10 AI bots on each side.
As for players’ loadouts, you’ll get a primary blaster weapon and a handful of Star Cards, you then customise your Star Card hand. As for vehicle loadouts, each vehicle comes with its own set of weapons that can’t be upgraded.
