Star Wars: Battlefront II Beta Trailer Released

The Steam announcement said: "Star Wars fans rejoice!" It's set to make something of a resurgence. And Battlefront fans yearn for a game to deliver the gameplay they remember so fondly from the original Battlefront II.

The 2005 title lost its multiplayer functionality in 2014, when server network GameSpy was shut down by new owners Ziff Davis. Since then, people have used third-party tools to keep the game alive.

After many people criticized the VR broadcast in the comments on his Facebook profile, Zuckerberg apologized. The 2016 Oculus Rift sold for $599 and required a computer costing at least $500 for the full VR experience.

The restored multiplayer apparently comes from a partnership between Disney and GOG. Powered by GOG Galaxy, players on and Steam can once again clash in what is still one of the best and most iconic STAR WARS games ever produced.

The Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta is coming October 6 (or October 4 if you pre-order).

Those of you who want to experience the new installment before its official release here's your chance and here are the exact times.

Also of note, there will be Star Wars Battlefront II beta challenges.
