The beta for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 began this past Friday, and while anticipation for the sequel might’ve carried it forward to a highly successful release, it seems that the game has fallen into the same trap as the original. Star Wars: Battlefront suffered during its beta event as players everywhere spread word of the rather disappointing nature of the game, which failed to include many of the features that made the original 2004-05 series so special. While Battlefront 2 has at least captured some of the fabled lost content, its unfortunate reliance on the Star Card mechanic for revenue has betrayed the otherwise exciting shooter, leading many to swear off the title for the foreseeable future.
That said, it seems the developers are unwilling to give up the spotlight just yet, regardless of any negative reception. While no announcement has been officially made, the beta for Battlefront 2 has been extended, according to Electronic Arts’ webpage for the event. The open beta will now run until Wednesday, October 11 at 4:00 pm UTC, or 12:00 pm EST.
Unfortunately, the download is no longer available for the PlayStation 4, according to PlayStation Lifestyle, meaning that only players who already have access will be able to continue playing. The same holds true for those on the Xbox One.
