Take a look at the information we’ve provided below, where you’ll be able to find out how to download the beta and get started playing the Battlefront 2 beta.

Now that you know how to download the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta, let’s talk about some of the “issues” that players have reported. Many users have reported slow downloads coming from the game download. Unfortunately, this doesn’t really have anything to do with the game itself, and is instead an issue with the service provider, as well as the customer’s internet service—most likely having issues together in tandem. Simply be patient, walk away from the computer or TV, and just give the download time to finish. It will be worth it, we promise.
