Star Wars Battlefront beta extended for infrastructure testing

The Star Wars Battlefront beta has been extended by a day for further infrastructure testing.



Star Wars Battlefront beta Extended

Yesterday, EA and DICE announced on the Battlefront site that the Star Wars Battlefront beta would be extended by a day. It was scheduled to finish at the end of the day today (October 12) but will instead run until the end of the day tomorrow, October 13.

The reason for the Battlefront beta extension is to allow the DICE team to perform further infrastructure testing. Here’s the specifics from one of their community managers:

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.

Intentional kicking and connectivity loss? Well that’s only going to get annoying fast!


Perhaps while they have the Battlefront beta extended they can look at some other issues, like repeatedly unbalanced (2v8) match-ups and capacity problems. The biggest bug they need to address is the lack of a single-player campaign, though…

Star Wars Battlefront launches on November 17, 2015. You can pre-order it from Amazon now.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
