Gamers will get an extra day to fight in the trenches of Star Wars Battlefront, EA has announced. The four-day beta, which was originally slated for October 8th through the 12th, will now extend to Tuesday, October 13th for additional testing.
Developer DICE posted the following message to its Battlefront forums, saying that while they hope the additional testing ensure a smoother launch for first-day users, the beta’s last 24 hours may provide some greater technical hiccups such as getting dropped from matches and online disconnections.
Hope you’re enjoying the Star Wars Battlefront beta and thank you for playing – every time you log on, it’s helping us ensure the experience is going to be great at launch. As we get into the late stages of the beta, we will begin conducting further technical tests on our infrastructure.
These additional tests will start on Monday, October 12 and will run thru Tuesday, October 13th, which will add an additional day to the open Beta. These tests are to help us find some extreme scenarios, and that means some players may experience occasional issues such as being kicked from the game or losing connectivity. This is all being done in the name of shoring up our infrastructure before we launch on November 17th.
Please continue to provide your feedback around the Beta and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefront in November.
Star Wars Battlefront releases on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC via Origin on November 17th.
