Check Your Email For Star Wars Battlefront Alpha Invitations

If you registered for the Star Wars Battlefront PC Alpha, check your email. EA has started sending out invitations.

The alpha test is scheduled to begin on Thursday, July 2 at 2 a.m. Pacific / 5 a.m. Eastern. EA plans to shut things down for this round of testing on Monday, July 6, at the same time.

If you get selected, you’ll need to download Origin to participate. The client is available for download now, so you if you get an invitation, you’ll want to pre-load it so you’re ready for when the servers open.

EA has non-disclosure strictures in place, so there is unlikely to be footage that lasts long online (if it appears at all). The company warns that violation of the NDA may result in forfeiture of the user’s Origin account.  

If you have a golden ticket in your mailbox, have fun this weekend. For more on Star Wars Battlefront, check out our coverage from E3.

Thanks to reader Derek for the images and the tip.

 

Our Take
As tempted as you might be to share footage, know that there are severe consequences if it’s traced back to you. Also, I might be a little jealous. Have fun.
