Well at this point it looks like we'll have to wait a little bit for the beta to even become available on the store at 1pm EST US. They are releasing the beta by region. I know if you change your region to Australia you can play it right now.

Had a full party of 12 rockin' Battlefront. Seems like a fun game but there are some issues. Spawn points, confusing in-game squad system etc (we had to run groups of three/four to get into games eventually).

Yeah, that always happens with multiplayer betas it seems... There are sooooo many people trying to get into games that its hard in a group. I got to see someone play a little bit. It looks cool, but I can't say anything to the actual mechanics since I haven't played myself yet. I probably won't today, since there is the ESO event this evening; but maybe tomorrow night or sunday night

Had a good time with a friend of mine with a few gripes. Trying to group up is hard even with 1 person. Spawn points needs work i understand spawning on your partner in walker assualt but not drop zone. Rebels get owned far too much by imperials in walker assault. That LMG also might need a small damage nerf as well. It's not my ideal Battlefront game either far from it, but I have to hope it will catch up to Battlefront 2 with time.

Yeah spawns are weird at the moment. I had someone spawn right in front of me as I was running. Then his team mate spawned next to me and started to run in front of me. Hilarity ensured, took them both out. Then I was blown up by the AT-AT.

I find it ok so far but definately not going to purchase it at launch. It also felt really arcade-like with everything having cooldowns instead of ammo, fast health regen, pick-up tokens rather than actually climbing into a vehicle, etc. also walker assault is a friggin nightmare for the rebels and your K/D goes right into the toilet as your so busy shooting the walkers, you just get repeatedly killed by snowtroopers.

Its fun, but not a true battlefront game in my mind.

Spawns are a issue from time to time for me at least, and the party system is way to ridiculous for a DICE game. Wanted to play with Rune and some others last night but since we can't seem to join each other in game and gotta either go to our friends list to join them instead it got annoying. And seeing how easy it is to level up and unlock  things now I wonder if we'll be able to get to play a new mode during the weekend? I'd like that. As for the party up system can someone test this out for me and come back here to say if it works or not? That way I can try it with a full party.

1.) Get everyone in a party of a few friends.

2.) Have each person take a turn to select their partner.

3.) Have one player search for a match, only one person.

4.) When the player finds a game check the top left it should say something like "party member in game press Y to join" have all party members click it and join in.

5.) See if everyone has joined the game.

If anyone can do this and confirm it that'd be nice, thank you all and hope you enjoy the beta even more.

Got a few hours in and sadly I am not impressed. Graphics and audio are fantastic, but I'm sorta shaking my head at some of the game design decisions.

-The power up icons are lame. I get they put em there to prevent people rushing vehicles, but it sort of defeats the purpose because Iv'e    noticed people rush to the ones that have a vehicle icons anyway and even seen some try and camp around certain areas seemingly  waiting for one anyway. Call me old fashioned, but I actually want to jump onto a speeder or climb into an X-Wing like in the previous games.

- Spawn locations are all screwed up.

- No incentive at all for teamwork

- Unbalanced. Rebels get owned 9 times out of 10 in Walker Assault.

- Weapons unbalanced. The LMG is way too powerful and accurate over long distance.

- Why no aim down sight? Why make it so you can "zoom" but not simply aim down your sight? Am I missing something? Seems strange. (minor gripe)

 

I get it's a beta and all, but the game being only a month out I think it's safe to assume they are not going to change much if anything.
