Waiting for Star Wars Battlefront II? You can play now!


The much-anticipated release of Star Wars Battlefront II is November 17th, but if you do your gaming on a PC or Xbox you can start playing now.

The first 10 hours of Battlefront II gameplay are being made available to all members or EA Access. The progress you make in the game during this preview view period can be used once the full game is available on November 17 (November 14 for all those who pre-order a digital copy of the game).

You can sign up for EA Access for just a mere $5 per month and gain access to the play first trial for Star Wars Battlefront II. Once a member you’ll be able to enjoy the first 10 hours of gameplay including the first section of the single-player campaign.

Of course, if you do your gaming on a PlayStation 4 like I do, EA Access is unavailable. Blame the folks at Sony for being short-sighted.

Additional content coming your way

Once you’ve gotten your full copy of Battlefront II you can expect some more additional content coming your way starting in early December. Starting on December 5, you’ll have to choose a side, First Order or Resistance with new special challenges and Faction specific rewards coming your way.
