There might be a few questions surrounding the launch, so read on for some useful tips.
WHEN CAN I START PLAYING MULTIPLAYER?
The PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One release of Star Wars Battlefront starts on November 17 in select countries and rolls out globally through November 20. In the chart below you’ll see when you can get your hands on the game and start playing.
Note that some regions cover several time zones, which means that the release might span two dates. For instance, parts of the United States will technically get the game late at night on November 16, but for simplicity this is considered (the eve of) November 17.
USEFUL TIPS AND TRICKS
Throwing yourself right into Star Wars Battlefront multiplayer might be courageous. If you’re new to shooters, try out the Training Missions first. You can tackle these alone or with a friend, and you’ll get to try out blasters and X-wings, and play as Darth Vader.
WHAT GAME MODE SHOULD I TRY FIRST?
Once you feel ready to jump into a multiplayer match, there are plenty of options. If you want to experience Star Wars battles on a grand scale, pilot iconic vehicles, and play as heroes and villains, you should try out Supremacy. If you're in the mood for something more fast-paced, Blast is a great mode for fans of close-quartered combat.
