Much like Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: World War 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 also has a beta prior to its full release. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is what happens when a big first-person shooter like Battlefield is set in the Star Wars universe, which is much like Star Wars Battlefront except with an actual single-player campaign this time around.

Developed by Dice, the same studio behind Battlefield 1 and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, here's everything you need to know about the Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta.
