Star Wars: BattleFront 2: Datamining Discoveries

As we told yo a few days ago, the beta for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is in full swing. This means people have access to the game, and can datamine it. This is what we learned that last 24 hours.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated for release on November 17 for PCXbox One, and PlayStation 4 with a $59.99 price tag. Anyone who pre-orders the game will receive access to the game’s beta period three days earlier than everyone else, among other bonuses. Meanwhile, pre-ordering the $79.99 Star Wars Battlefront II: Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition will guarantee a three-day early access to the full game.
