Because the open beta will be playable both online and offline, players can embark on a "Survival Mission on Tattoine," whether by themselves or with friends, utilizing the game's split screen co-op. There will also be other modes available in the beta, including "Drop Zone on Sullust," which is a recently announced 8-versus-8 race to capture drop pods, and "Walker Assault on Hoth."

With the news accompanying the open beta on the "StarWars: Battlefront" blog, community manager, Matthew Everett updated players with more information on the game's public testing phase, including confirmation AI bots in the form of Fighter Squadrons will be present, as well as customizable Star Cards included with the primary blaster weapon.

The open beta confirmation comes with the news EA will be using skill-based matchmaking for the game, as well as dedicated servers, and the welcome absence of a convoluted process to simplify joining the public testing phase.

The official game is expected to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in North America and Brazil on November 17, followed on November 19 in Australia, and November 20 in Europe.

Its first post-game content, the "Battle of Jakku," which was earlier announced during the 2015 Star Wars Celebration, is expected to be launched for free download on December 8.
