The recently passed Star Wars: Battlefront beta brought in the biggest numbers for any open beta that EA has held. Being bigger than any Battlefield beta, or anything else that EA has put out is quite the statement, and I think it gives us a good idea of how popular the new Battlefront is going to be – very.
“… the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ beta surpassed a major milestone: more than nine million players logged in and played. That makes this the single largest beta in the history of EA.”Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir, Senior Producer, Star Wars Battlefront
This statement was released by the game’s Senior Producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir in which she also said “Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront back in April, we knew the beta would be a huge test for our game. After all, the beta has been one of the most talked about topics around the game over the last six months, and it was exciting (and a little nerve racking if I’m being completely honest) to open it up to the world.”
If you missed your chance to get in on the beta, Battlefront is set to release on November 17th @ 12AM PDT, preorders are open now so don’t forget to reserve your copy and get in on the bonuses! Also, you might want to check out how I experienced the open beta, it wasn’t too bad, but there were some obvious flaws in the system.
