Test Chamber – Watch Darth Vader Force Choke Us In The Star Wars Battlefront Beta

by Andrew Reiner on Oct 06, 2015 at 03:41 PM

Star Wars fans likely have two dates memorized: November 17, the launch of Star Wars Battlefront, and December 18, the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. The countdown to both launches is made a little less painful today with the launch of the Star Wars Battlefront beta on PlayStation 4 and PC. We took a brief look at the two modes players can test out at this early time, and walked away mighty impressed by the classic trilogy vibe, and flow of combat.

We kick off our look with an 8 vs. 8 match on the planet Sullust. Tim Turi and I pass the controller on every death, and end up doing fairly well in this match. The next match we dive into is Walker Assault, Star Wars Battlefront's large 40-player mode with vehicle integration. We suit up as the Rebels and show off many of Battlefront's unique features, all while dying over and over again. Darth Vader even makes an unexpected appearance at one of our spawn points.

Enjoy the video, folks! Let us know what you think of the beta in the comments section below.
