The stress test for this starts tomorrow and runs through to the 12th., Pre loading is currently available on Origin for everyone with access opening up tomorrow.
Plenty of stream currently on Twitch, as Some keys were given out on the 6th for early access to streamers and competition winners.
3 Game modes in the stress test
Walker Assault on Hoth: Fight in epic 40-player battles as a Rebel to destroy the Empire’s onslaught of AT-AT’s by calling in Y-wing bombers. Or, side with the Empire and protect your walkers while utilizing their mighty weaponry to crush the Rebel objective.
Drop Zone on Sullust: Escape pods are crashing down and you and your team must fight to control them. With its frantic 8v8 matches, Drop Zone is sure to put your combat and strategy skills to the test.
Survival Mission on Tatooine: Play alone or with a friend via co-op or split-screen as you battle to hold off waves of Imperial forces including AT-ST’s, TIE fighters, elite storm troopers and more.
Some great aspects brought in from DICE like the squad and partner system similar to what you will find in Battlefield games, So you can spawn on your squad or partner and you also can share unlocks with your partner, so if your level 20 and your partners level 1 they will gain access to your unlocks whilst you play with them.
For anyone whos going to try it get me added on origin - ID: DSalva
And a free pro tip!
Rebels - Shoot the AT-AT's in the belly for higher damage and use your ion grenades for extra damage.
Imps - The AT-At's are only vulnerable whilst the rebels have Y-Wings in the sky, so take the Y-Wings out to keep your AT-AT's up
