    I'm dying to play this game. Anyone playing the beta right now? How is it? I remember bf2 from way back so I'm expecting great things.

    PS: If anyone has a spare beta key for any US system/pc shoot one my way plz~

    I played it a bit last night but didn't think much of it. It looks pretty I'll give it that but I found it a bit boring.

    I've been playing it today and it is pretty good. I find it hard to locate vehicle pick ups.

    Plus it is an open beta. I didn't think you needed a beta key. I know I didn't. But I have already preordered the game.

    This.

    They've nailed the visuals and audio, it's incredibly Star Wars. But from what I played the gameplay was very repetitive and uninspired.

    The audio and visuals are the best in the "Battlefront" series but apart from that I realized they removed so much that its virtually a shell of it's past games. So much that made the series unique is now gone.

    In fact after writing a list I realized there's nothing there that resembles any of the past games. It's still really fun and I highly recommend anyone play the beta but if you're looking for a sequel to Battlefront 2 welllllllllllllll........ yeah this isn't it. Other than that I don't think there's going to be much content to warrant a $60 price tag at launch. I could be wrong though but I suspect I'm not.

    The beta is free for everyone. I played on the PC and it runs really well but not nearly as well as the PS4 version. The game plays at 1080p60fps, it's super smooth. Really pretty.
