Yay, OT time.

This is one that I've been on the fence about for ages, I keep looking at pre-orders then trying to be sensible but it looks so good.

Looking forward to reading all the first impressions from people on the beta (especially PC)

Really hoping it plays as good as it looks.

Xbox One: Some users have found that their pre-order codes won't work, and appear as invalid. We are investigating this, so please just hold onto your codes for now.

PS4: Pre-order codes can be redeemed but don't give access to the Beta. We are investigating this and you don't need a new code.

Origin: Some users who pre-ordered from the store during a certain period might not have automatically gotten in. If you have a pre-order from before October 2nd but don't have access, please email support using the steps here: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/star-...t-ii-beta-trou...

Thank you for your patience, we hope to have an update soon.

Was not impressed with the first one I just bought for a couple bones, but it was nothing of importance just wanted to try it out. Really hoping this one is leagues better in gunplay.

Pro patch please too.

Yeah, there's no date cut-off for the digital pre-order.

Maybe I'm stating the obvious here, but I just pre-ordered on the PSN store and that gave me instant access to the beta. The whole October 1st thing doesn't apply there. That was for the Elite edition specifically, but I'd assume it's the same for Standard.

Is origin dl speed slow for SG users?
I've got 1gbps and origin only gives me 7 MB/s. Steam gives me 60+ MB/s etc.

Don't think there's any optimisation for PS4 Pro in the beta. Very aliased, and barely causing my fans to spin up.

It's downloadable now for digital preorders? So what am I supposed to do? I preordered this months ago on PSN but I've gotten nothing from them. I'm not seeing it on the store or in my library...

Just went on a 25 kill streak with Maul in Theed. His movement feels great, as does his saber throw. Awesome for CC & holding down small corridors inside the palace

Ok so figured out how to get it for Xbox One. Search for Battlefront II (two capital i's) in store. If you entered the code, it should state multiplayer beta owned but you can only 'manage' it. If you look closely there'll be something akin to 'part of this bundle' and click it. Now it shows you the actual beta that you can install.

Talk about a million hoops to jump through but it checks out.

10 pence on Game.co.uk if you need one asap.

Played a few rounds on PC. CBA with m&kB for vehicle controls, will probably use controller.

First thoughts: more to the game, but I miss squad systems and spawning from Battlefield 1. It seems to put me into a squad with no way of identifying them?

Is the beta open even if I didn't pre-preorder? I understand pre-orders get 2 days early.

Is this likely to be region locked?

Also do you have a link?

I tried an EU code and it didn't work on NA.

Does anyone have any extra codes, because my Amazon preorder doesn't allow access to the beta early... only gamestop, bestbuy, and walmart in the US. Ridiculous.

Can't find a starfighter control setup I like...
Trying to get close to the old battlefront 2 on ps2. Thought southpaw with inverted flight would do it, but looks like it's not working on PS4. Still has throttle mapped on left stick even though it says right stick on the screen
