Electronic Arts is ready with Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The beta which kickstarts today seems to be exceptionally optimized on all platforms which can be deduced from the download sizes.
EA and DICE share a very long relationship. The partnership has launched some of the most successful games in gaming history. Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 are great examples. When they announced Star Wars Battlefront, long-time fans of the series were not extremely delighted. They assumed that plagued by DLCs and expansion packs, the gameplay experience might take backstage.
Electronic Arts surprised everyone despite releasing expansion packs for the first part of the game. The game was well-optimized on all platforms but it lacked a lot of features in the multiplayer mode and the absence of a single player mode was very disappointing. Learning from their past mistakes, the company has made a lot of tweaks to the new game.
Well-Optimized Sizes for the Beta
Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta download sizes indicate that the game is pretty well optimized. The game on PC is the biggest of them all with a file size of 22.8 GB. Considering the internet speed most PC gamers use, their configuration and storage size available, this file size is literally small and should be readily accessible by most.
The beta size gets even smaller on the consoles. Playstation 4 gamers can explore Battlefront II by downloading a meager 15.3GB file. It definitely can’t get lower than this considering how huge the maps are and this being an AAA title that everyone is looking forward to play this holiday season.
On the Xbox One version, Star Wars Battlefront 2 gets even more interesting because it’s just 13.2GB in space. You can easily download it within a couple of hours even with slow internet connection while others could get the job done in minutes.
Once the multiplayer beta begins, reviews will start pouring in and we can confirm whether EA and DICE has done a great job in optimizing the game well on all-platforms. The single player campaign demo is part of the beta if earlier sources are to be believed but it has not been mentioned so far on Origin or other pages. You can still play the multiplayer version of Star Wars Battlefront II by downloading the necessary files. The beta starts on October 6th and runs till October 9th.
